When it comes to eating, I enjoy products that my family and I can completely love (full of bold flavor!) as well as products that are healthy and organic. Justin’s has been one of my Go-to brands, especially when it comes to their Almond Butters and Peanut Butters. Graciously, I am super thrilled to be expressing my love for this brand because I am first and foremost a devoted consumer of their products on any given day and secondly, this company is one of the few company’s that I wholeheartedly trust their ingredients. That is why I’ve decided to share all that’s Justin My Plate: Chocolate Hazelnut, Peanut Butter Cup, + Almond Butter.
To be honest, I throughly enjoyed every flavor profile that each product offered! My personal favorites (and my little guy’s too!) were the Peanut Butter Cups in both Dark and Milk Chocolate. If you’re a lover of Reese’s Peanut Butter cups (like me!), then you’ll surely love these and their made with good ingredients, Ya’ll! Plus, my little guy loves the Honey Peanut Butter + Banana Chips packets. Who knew that Banana Chips taste so good with peanut butter? Hmmm. I’m a believer now! Besides, it’s a perfect “on the go” snack for you or your little one.
Anyway, I chose to experiment with all the flavors that were included and while I’m not a HUGE chocolate fan, I must admit that the Chocolate Hazelnut Butter was crazy good! It’s definitely a nice balance and it certainly made great waffles for breakfast! To top things off (and to offset all the chocolate), I chose to add caramelized bananas atop by sautéing 3 ripe bananas in skillet with 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1/4 cup of honey, + 1 tsp of cinnamon and letting everything melt together until it was nice and bubbly. In addition, I was able to experiment with my favorite easy to make snack—-Energy Bites! It was bursting with bold flavors, especially since I used the Peanut Butter Cups instead of the usual chocolate chips. It’s a great snack or morning bite on a busy day and I recommend giving it a try. Plus, it’s great for energy and is packed with a ton of nutrients from the rolled oats, honey, ground flax seeds, and whatever else you decide to include (chia seeds, coconut flakes, etc.).
