Not a night goes by since starting my nutrition plan with Renaissance Periodization about a year ago that I don’t enjoy a generous nut butter drizzle on top of my casein protein mug cake.
It’s the “dessert” I look forward to (especially when cutting/dieting as it’s literally the food high point of my day) but also accompanied by one of the most difficult decisions I have to make…almond or cashew butter?
Life’s hard sometimes.
In any given week, there are usually no less than 3 open nut butter jars in my pantry.
Almond and cashew butter for me, peanut butter for the husband and depending on when my last trip to Trader Joe’s was, perhaps some cookie butter too (ok, that’s not really a nut butter but, close enough).
Cashew butter tastes like straight up dessert to me, I adore the stuff. It’s super creamy consistency and subtle sweetness just win me over.
Almond butter, although grittier and less sweet, still has a piece of my heart too though as it was my original nut butter love once I discovered there were other nuts out there besides peanuts that could be “butterized”.
I even make my own sometimes – this Maple Cinnamon Almond Butter is a household favorite!
Having to decide between the two each night feels like a parent choosing which child they love more, it’s literally impossible.
When I saw the almond and cashew butter blend from Bestie, my heart skipped a beat. No more choosing?
The best of both nut butter worlds in one jar? YES!
Even better? The ingredient list reads a simple “almonds, cashews, sea salt”. The end. Nothing else.
It was like Christmas morning a couple months early.
While I’d be incredibly content just eating it by the spoonful, I decided to celebrate with some festive winter-ish cashew almond butter cookies.
They’re flourless so they’re ridiculously chewy and soft (my favorite kind of cookie or brownie) and with a dark chocolate dipped edge garnished with candied sage, they’d be a great addition to your holiday cookie baking.
