A big, chocolate-covered “thank you” goes out to Jennifer of the Barney Butter Company for sending me a yummy free sample of Barney Butter so that I could see (and taste!) for myself what all the fuss is about. My verdict? I like this stuff! But then again, I’m not exactly picky when it comes to nut butters– I love ’em all. The Barney Butter has a taste similar to almond butter (well duh! It is almond butter!), but its texture is smooth and creamy, kinda like Skippy peanut butter (from what I remember; I haven’t eaten Skippy in years and years).I first tried it plain, straight-up, which is my all-time fave way to eat nut butters. But I decided that I like Barney Butter better (say that three times fast) on sandwiches.
I spread one half of an Ezekiel pita with applesauce and the other half with Barney Butter. Slap it on a plate, throw together a huge salad, and call it lunch!
A quick lunch munch: the sandwich, a mondo kale-and-mix-green salad, and peach salsa
Chocolate-Covered Meal of the Day
My first try of Barney Butter. And what’s that chocolatey–lookin‘ stuff? That, my dear friends, is Brownie Batter Hot Cereal. To all you oatmeal haters: I doubt even you could maintain your oat-hatin‘ ways if your hot cereal tasted like brownie batter!
