There aren't many people that don't love peanut butter but wouldn't it be nice if there was a peanut butter that was healthier? Well, I am here to tell you there definitely is! NuttZo to the rescue! A blend of 7 nut and seed butters that provide all the essential vitamins and minerals one needs in their diet as well as making up a complete protein. Now that is saying a lot for something you can buy right out of a jar!
The company was founded by a mom who was looking for a food that would provide a healthy diet for her newly adopted Ukrainian son. Growing up, and eating only porridge, he wouldn't eat anything that didn't have a smooth texture. Desperate moms call for desperate measures! She started blending this nut butter for him, added some flax for healthy omega 3s and he loved it. Now she devotes herself to bringing NuttZo to the market and founded a charity called "Project Left Behind" to support the other orphans in the Ukraine that were left behind.
So not only do we have a product that is gluten-free, certified organic, verified non-GMO, vegan with no added sugars, but one that supports an important children's charity.
2 Tablespoons of NuttZo provides 6-7g protein, 2-6% calcium, 4-6% iron, 3-4% sodium, 20-24% total fat, 10% vitamin C, 3g dietary fiber and 1g sugar depending on the flavor. Flavors include: Original, Peanut Free and Dark Chocolate.
Now, besides smearing this delicious concoction on bread, there are plenty more delectable uses for this healthy spread. Think cookies, like our NuttZo Nut Butter Cookies recipe, granola, stuffed French toast and popcorn. Grab a jar here to purchase NuttZo from Amazon.com.
