“Perseverance is failing 19 times and succeeding the 20th.” – Julie Andrews
After years of workshopping recipes for nut butter bars made without peanuts,* we perfected not one, but two recipes we fell in love with. We are so excited to announce the arrival of our newest handcrafted nut butter bars, Apple Ginger Almond Butter Bar and Lemon Blueberry Cashew Butter Bar!
#Bigspoonrunning ambassador and ultra-marathon running legend Michael Wardian originally planted the seed for the idea that would become our Apple Ginger Almond Butter Bar. Mike is crazy about almonds and is a big fan of our Fiji Ginger Almond Butter. He’s always on-the-go (like, seriously – Mike holds the world record for running seven marathons on seven continents in seven days) and needs snacks that can travel with him and give him the energy boost he needs. So, we’ve been experimenting with just such a bar and finally landed on the perfect recipe. Apple Ginger is made with Mission variety almonds, unsweetened dried apple, and spicy crystalized Fiji ginger, which offers a delightful chew.
After the incredible reception (thank you!) of our Lemon Coconut Cashew Butter, we knew we were on to something with that flavor profile. Our co-founder Megan always has a jar in her desk that she eats with fresh fruit every morning. She thought it would be a great idea to make a bar out of it. (Megan is the original creator of our nut butter bars, so she knows a thing or two about creating these recipes). After the first test batch, our team was in love – we couldn’t wait to share this with you! The combination of cashew butter, sweet blueberries, and tart lemon makes it taste like your favorite smoothie bowl made portable!
Like all our bars, Apple Ginger and Lemon Blueberry are packed with whole grains and plant-based protein. They are also free of gluten, soy, dairy, and palm oil. Unlike our other bars, they are sweetened with oats (that’s right!) instead of raw honey, making them vegan.
These new bars are available via our website by the case and in a new Ultimate Nut Butter Bar Variety Pack featuring two bars, each of our six nut butter bar varieties. We hope you love them as much as we do!
*Bars are processed on equipment that also processes peanuts. Not recommended for people with peanut allergies.
