So, we’ve found some ways to take simple foods and recipes to another level with the help of The Butternut Co. nut butters. With a little bit of trial and experimentation, you can transform any dish into a delectable feast. Here’s a few of them:’
- Mushroom Toast With Nut Butter
Sautéed mushroom on toast makes for an amazing breakfast or snack. With the right mix of carbs and protein, a little deviation from the regular preparation would be to use nut butter to sauté the mushrooms. A healthy and mouthwatering afterthought: Spread a generous layer of peanut butter on the toast, and then lay the sautéed mushrooms over it.
- Oats With Peanut Butter
A surprising twist to your regular oats, add a spoonful or two of healthy peanut butter to the oats. Whether you’re preparing overnight cold oats or warm oats, an abundant drizzle on top will add a nutty and buttery taste, as well as more texture to your breakfast. The high protein peanut butter added to the protein-rich oats will pack a healthy punch for your busy day.
- Scrambled Eggs With Nut Butter
On days when you’re bored of your regular scrambled eggs, try a drizzle of peanut butter or almond butter on top of the eggs. It’s a quick and interesting way to transform your breakfast into a scrumptious surprise.
- Avocado And Spinach Wrap With Nut Butter
The healthy avocado and spinach wrap usually tastes bland, given that both veggies do not have strong flavours. One of the best ways to add flavor and make it healthier is to add a dash of nut butter. Spread a layer of high protein peanut butter on the base, before you lay the avocado and spinach. And that’s a wrap!
