DIY Holiday Gifts: Chocolate, Coconut, Chia Almond Butter

Print

This almond butter is a great way to give the gift of heart health. While I have nothing against peanuts, I believe that all of its cousins deserve a similar pedestal. Mixed with cacao powder, chia seeds, and shredded coconut, this almond butter is a special, healthful treat that all will surely enjoy.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

The tiny almond is a miracle of nutrients! It’s a great source of dietary fiber, potassium, protein, calcium, iron, magnesium and heart-healthy unsaturated fats. Its protein and fat content means that you’ll feel fuller longer which could eliminate the desire to snack away between meals. It is also naturally low in sodium and has no cholesterol. When combined with chia seeds, the protein and iron content is increased and the addition of cacao gives it an antioxidant boost and natural sweetness. It’s the best gift of all: the gift of health!
