My love for peanut butter sandwich begun at a very young age. Peanut butter sandwich was my favorite snack as a kid. I am so lucky that I am not one of the unfortunate ones who are allergic to it. Otherwise, I would be missing so much.
As if peanut butter is not awesome enough on its own, try pairing it with jelly. Peanut butter jelly sandwich will never, ever get old. Unlike chocolate spread, peanut butter is something you can have on its own. You can spread it on bread, or if you are fiend like I am, just get a spoonful and enjoy its sweetness and flavor.
Peanuts are high in fat. They are, in fact, oilseeds. But did you know that as high as peanuts are in fat, they are actually low in carbs, making it a perfect match to the keto diet? Before the alarm bells start ringing, peanuts are also an excellent source of protein. With these things said, peanuts are perfect to be included in the ketogenic diet. That’s why they are a staple in my ketogenic menu. However, I would like to emphasize that peanuts have no direct correlation to weight loss.
In my desire to constantly improve the way I eat and what I eat, I am always on the lookout for healthier and cleaner food alternatives. Knowing that peanut butter has a tendency to be loaded with an excessive amount of sugar, I looked for a replacement that will be perfect for my ketogenic diet.
In my search, I came across Eliot’s Adult Nut Butters. Shooting from the hip, the reason these products caught my attention is their unique flavors. They come in chocolate chili, espresso nib, garam masala, harissa cashew butter, honey chipotle, spicy Thai and sriracha. Interesting, right?
Before we go any further, I want to share a little something about Eliot’s Adult Nut Butters. Based in Portland, Oregon, they are a small batch, savory nut butter company. They strive to bring the most flavorful nut butters, hence, the unique variants. Veering from the traditional peanut butter, their products are aimed towards grown-ups.
Eliot’s Adult Nut Butters takes pride in using non-GMO (genetically-modified organisms) peanuts. They do not use artificial ingredients, colorings, preservatives, added oils, and stabilizers. With these, they are definitely 100% vegan, ketogenic or keto, and paleo-friendly. Since this is produced by a small batch company, you are sure that each bottle was handled with TLC, tender, loving care.
Since the other flavors were too adventurous for me, I ordered Eliot’s Adult Nut Butters in Espresso Nib. This variant only has 5 ingredients: roasted peanuts, cacao nibs, espresso beans, brown sugar, and salt. One serving size is equivalent to 1 tablespoon or 14 grams. It has 90 calories, 0 milligrams of cholesterol, 50 milligrams of sodium, 3 grams of total carbohydrates, and 3 grams of protein.
My order arrived a little after lunch, so I decided to wait a few hours and relive my childhood. When the clock struck half-past three, I took out my jar of adventure and a loaf of my favorite bread. Upon opening the jar, you should stir the nut butter thoroughly. You don’t want some of the product go to waste because it was not mixed properly. When I mixed it, I could really see the cacao nibs. I tasted the nut butter on its own. The first thing that popped in my head is “home”. This nut butter is obviously home-made. It is so far from the commercial peanut butters you buy from the supermarket. The sweetness and peanut flavor are there, but when you add the flavor and taste of cacao nibs, this product just blew my mind. Eliot’s Adult Nut Butters Espresso Nibs packs a powerful punch!
Eliot’s Adult Nut Butters Espresso Nibs is two-thumbs up for me. I highly recommend it if you are on the ketogenic or keto diet. This will help you reach ketosis and burn fat!
What are you waiting for? It’s time to go nuts!
