                        Deliciously Healthy Nut Butters!

I think this was one of the very first companies I wanted to review.  They offer amazing nut butters that are organic, raw, and additive-free!  How great it that?!

The coconut butter is rich and creamy looking.

Filled with all that great Lauric Acid and MCT's (Medium Chain Fatty Acids) from coconuts, the coconut butter and coconut oil is a great addition to any diet. Artisana offers so many ways to enjoy some of the great benefits of coconut oil!  Have you tried their Cacao Bliss?
 
"Freshly made from whole coconut flesh (not just the oil) and puree'd into a fiberous, densely nutritious spread. Our butter melts in your mouth with full coconut taste and aroma, while giving you the whole coconut nutrition: oil, dietary fiber, protein, vitamins and minerals.
No additives – only pure, unadulterated coconut.

Ingredients: Organic Raw Coconut

Made in a facility that processes tree nuts, but does not process any peanuts, gluten, dairy or soy.
Note: Coconut oil separation may occur causing a white, solid top layer. Simply warm and blend back together.
Refrigeration not recommended" -artisanafoods.com 

It can be really hard to find other companies that offer alternative nut butters like Macadamia Nut Butter.  It is especially difficult to find a company committed to organic, raw foods, and allergen friendly.  Thankfully, Artisana offers these things.  There are so many delicious flavors of nut butters to choose from!
 
"Revel in the creamy yet crunchy texture of raw macadamias and cashews as you savor the naturally sweet, wild flavor of Artisana™ Organic Raw Macadamia Butter.
Blend with fresh red peppers to create a creamy Alfredo sauce for your favorite pasta dish or simply slice up your favorite fruit and spread it on. Every spoonful is delightfully delicious.

Ingredients: Organic Raw Macadamias, Organic Raw Cashews

Refrigeration not necessary.

Note: Oil separation occurs naturally, stir before serving.

Organic Raw Coconut Butter Organic Raw Coconut Butter  Check out the great high fat content.  This would be a great addition to those needed to add some of those healthy fats to their diet/lifetsyle, or for someone who is trying to maintain a Ketogenic diet.  Macadamia Nut Butter are perfect for that!

Walnut Butter is one of the very hardest nut butters to find.  It seems that Almond and Cashew butters are growing in popularity, but walnut butter can be super hard to find.  Well, not anymore.  Artisana offers that too!
Organic Raw Coconut Butter"Artisana™ Organic Raw Walnut Butter is a good source of Omega-3 fatty acids (unsaturated fats) and also a great way to add protein, essential vitamins and minerals into your diet.
Feel invigorated as your body absorbs the raw, healthy energy unlocked from deep within the walnut kernels.

They also make Cashew Butter, Almond Butter, Pecan Butter, and Cacao bliss, in addition to their new products that offer the added benefits of Phytoplankton, Blue Algae, Berry Antioxidants, and more!

Last night I made some macaroons for the family and put a few of the chocolate paste squeeze packets on each cookies.   It was received well!  My mom especially mentioned that the tasted good.

I really like the squeeze packets for traveling because they tend to prevent the use of knives, extra containers, and prevent spills.  All you have to do it is knead and then spread on your toast, fruit, or right into your mouth.
