Bliss Nut Butters were one of my top picks at the 2015 Expo West. So I am happy to see that they’ve persisted for several years since. They make an interesting and very pure range of peanut butters, hazelnut butters, cashew butters, and more.
Bliss Nut Butters are Honey-Sweetened and Made in Oregon
Bliss Nut Butters are artisan blends that are lightly sweetened with honey and spiked with sea salt. Some varieties have other healthy additions like cinnamon and/or chia seeds. They also have a unique consistency that isn’t really smooth or chunky. I’d describe the texture as a roughly ground micro-chunkiness that is uniform throughout. You can see it in my picture below.
This rough yet still decently spreadable texture really helps the peanut and nut flavors shine. And though I usually only buy unsweetened nut butters, I have to admit that the little spike of honey makes Bliss Nut Butters a delightful spread with nothing else required. I could even enjoy these as a “frosting” on healthy muffins. I also love that two of the peanut butters are rich with chia seeds!
My only two wishes for Bliss Nut Butters is that they either tone down the sea salt or use a finer grind. Each bite seems to end with a very potent salty note – and that they cut the added oil. I’m not completely sure if the oil is the issue, but these nut butters tend to stay a little “greasy” even when thoroughly stirred and refrigerated.
