NaturAlmond Blonde Brownies
When picky little appetites demand more of something healthy, you know you’re doing something right! Mother of two, Jaime Foster found herself in that situation when she whipped up an almond butter recipe her grandfather had created for himself back in the ‘70s to combat a predisposition to cardiovascular disease.
Not only has it worked for her grandpa who is living an active life now in his 90s, the recipe led to NaturAlmond. Foster’s NaturAlmond includes only the highest quality non-GMO California almonds, the ideal roasting temperature, a hint of sea salt and a specific grinding process that creates both a texture and consistency that keeps even picky older appetites coming back for more.
If you can get beyond the habit-forming Maple Caramel Almond Butter, the product line also includes Original Almond Butter, Honey Roasted Almond Butter and Salt-Free Almond Butter. For the peanut butter fans among us, don’t fret … Foster launched Georgia Grinders Peanut Butter earlier this year and all are available locally. naturalmond.com In case you’re doubting how delicious this almond butter truly is, we submit Exhibit A: Spiced Almond Butter Blondies.
