Justin’s Nut Butter Giveaway and Vegan Chocolate Mousse

Let’s just say I’m over-the-top about my buddy Justin and his fabulous nut butters…I recently had the pleasure to meet Justin (twice,hehe) last month and tasted all of his incredible nut butters… Not only is Justin an amazing guy and a REAL Person, but his nut butters are out-of-this world.  Seriously, have you ever tried Chocolate Hazelnut Butter? Honey Almond Butter? Maple Almond Butter? Honey Peanut Butter? I didn’t think so…

Sick and tired of your regular ol’ peanut butter and jelly sammie, well go ahead and take my word for it, you can jazz up your sandwich, wraps, crackers, veggies, fruits, ice cream, anything with Justin’s Nut Butters…and the best part? These tasty creations are sold in handy dandy to-go squeezable and portable packets for easy traveling and munching on-the-go.

So, I decided to whip up a tasty dessert last night and use some of my Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut Butter…yummm….how about a little Chocolate Hazelnut Mousse to take the heat off this summer?   I hope you enjoy my newest indulgence…it’s guilt-free and exceptionally tasty…

    I”m wondering what Palm fruit oil is and why its needed in almond butter or peanut butter.
    Wouldn’t you be better off with the nut butters that are purely nut? What are your thoughts on this as a nutrionist? Some of the oils added are so confusing….
    Thank you!
    PS. If anyone has a Wegmans close by-they just started carrying Justins…

      Rooney,

      Thank you so very much for your comment; great to hear from you. This Organic Palm Fruit Oil is an unrefined extra virgin oil that is both chemical and solvent-free. Organic Palm Fruit Oil is commonly used in healthy cooking and baking. I find no harm in using Organic Palm Fruit Oil as it’s extracted simply from the pulp of the fruit of the oil palm and is cholesterol free, trans fat free, odorless, tasteless as well as provides our bodies with some basic daily energy needs. Moreover, Organic Palm Fruit Oil increases “Good” HDL compared to other saturated oils (such as coconut oil) to promote a healthy cardiovascular system. Hope this helps; thank you again for your comment and have a wonderful day! Best, Amie

    I have tried Justin’s products and they are fantastic! My favorites are the chocolate hazelnut butter and the maple almond butter! I don’t get to enjoy them often because they are pretty pricey, so I would LOVE a chance to win some!!

    It was so fun meeting you at the Step Up event last night! Kate and I chatted the whole way home about what a small world it is, and crazy coincidence to have met you randomly! As promised, I’m entering your nut butter giveaway :) I would like to try the chocolate peanut or honey peanut, since I’m allergic to both almonds and hazelnuts so those are out! Hopefully we can grab cocktails sometime soon!
