A Nutty Review - Tru-Nut!

Those of you who've been reading my blog for a while know that I'm obsessed with all things nutty. Nuts are delicious!

Or maybe I'm just a nut.

Anyway, I recently discovered a new nutty product to add to my already nutty pantry, stockpiled full of almond butters, roasted cashews, salted brazil nuts, crunchy peanut butters, and so on.

Tru-Nut is perfect for when you want to take that baked good (yay, it's baking season again!) up to the next level, or make a peanutty sauce and don't have a heating device to melt your peanut butter, or you've already eaten a small nation's nut rations that day and still want more nuttiness but your stomach can't handle much more fat. Even healthy fat can cause stomachaches - been there, done that (a lot).

Tru-Nut comes in three flavors, original, cinnamon, and chocolate. I tried the original and cinnamon and really enjoyed them! While a peanut powder product will never get the mouthfeel of peanut butter right (but that's what peanut butter is for) because of the reduced fat content, when fat is what causes that smooth, creamy, rich mouthfeel, I think these are perfect for adding to shakes or baking with.

If you do want to make a nice sauce, they also mix up really easily without any big clumping drama and the peanut flavor, if not the peanut butter mouthfeel, is spot on. It's a great product for what it is!

I also enjoyed the addition of the cinnamon to the cinnamon-flavored one. Original and chocolate are generally the only options you have with this sort of product, but cinnamon works so well with nuts! Especially if you're also including honey or jam (and why wouldn't you? It's a great combination).

With just a few natural ingredients (roasted peanuts, sugar, sea salt, and (in the case of the cinnamon one) cinnamon, it's also nutritionally sound and doesn't have any of those icky fillers that light spreads usually are packed with. Overall, I'm a fan!

What's your favorite thing to make with peanut powder?

Do you make a special breakfast on the weekends?

What are your plans for Thanksgiving?
