Roasted almonds and cashews with vanilla and chai spices make for an irresistible nut butter that’s vegan, paleo, and Whole30 compliant. You won’t miss the sugar that most flavored nut butters have!
This vanilla chai nut butter is my new favorite snack. It’s creamy, naturally sweet without any added sweeteners, and perfumed with the irresistible combination of vanilla and cardamom. It’s basically the vegan, Whole30-compliant, no sugar added, not-a-cookie version of my grain-free spiced shortbread. (Okay, maybe they’re not that similar after all! They do have the same enticing aroma and toasty vanilla and spice flavors, though.)
It’s amazing on dates, apple slices, carrot sticks, and spoons. Life is good and possibilities are endless when you have a jar of this stuff in the fridge!
