Almond Butter and Strawberry Spread

Nothing beats a Peanut butter and jelly sandwich right? WRONG!

Almond butter has become our favorite nut butter. Well, that’s a bit unfair for me to say this since all we’ve tried so far has been the always popular peanut butter and for the last 4 months Almond butter. Keeping in mind how healthy and nutritious both butters are. When you consume whole almond or in butter form you get vitamin E, potassium, magnesium, iron, calcium and phosphorus.

Almonds are a good fiber source and also contain protein. Because of their high monounsaturated fat content, almonds are considered a healthy food choice. So how can something so nutritious get better?! ADD flax seeds!  That’s what Trader Joe’s did with this bad boy in the above pic.

We got it, and it’s ok. Needed some getting used to the texture of the flax seeds which added more crunch to the already crunchy almond butter.  The butter alone is a no go for me. But once you put it together with jelly is a “OOh yea”. But wait, not just any jelly , we talking Crofter’s Organic Premium Spread. It’s the BF’s favorite spread ever!

Perfect Pre workout snack! 🙂

Talking about Crofter’s amazing spreads, I was sent 2 coupons to try an even healthier option. Their new line, Crofter’s Organic Superfruit. I need to hurry and go Shopping and try them!!




  1. You had me at peanut butter 😉 I used to work at a mall here in Vancouver where I had to patrol with my bike for 9 hours daily. It’s natural energy in a bottle 🙂
