Not chunky, yet not really creamy, these rustic grinds have a pure earthy consistency and taste. I was quickly addicted to the extremely savory, truly raw almond butter and found the Brazil nut butter to be a unique, and only slightly sweet delight. Their high quality does come at a premium price, though, so be sure to make each bite count.

Like so many commodities these days, pure, high-quality nuts are reaching sky-high prices. But when you are ready to indulge, Essential Living Foods organic nut butters should be on your hit list.

Essential Living Foods Truly Raw and Organic Nut Butters

Some may think that all nut butters are the same, but Essential Living Foods is proving otherwise. Earthy, rustic, rich, and hearty are words that came to mind as I savored small spoonfuls of these organic nut butters. They aren’t chunky, yet they’re also not as creamy and spreadable as you would think of with other nut butters.

Tasting Notes for Essential Living Foods Organic Nut Butters

Brazil Nut Honey Butter

The Brazil Nut Honey Butter was unbelievably thick and needed a little coaxing to spread. In fact, I found it worked best if I whisked a splash of water with a tablespoonful of this organic nut butter before spreading. Fortunately, it was worth the work. The Brazil nuts had obviously been blended as is – skins and all – offering a more complex flavor with hints of sweetness from the light addition of honey.

Truly Raw Almond Butter

The Truly Raw Almond Butter was deliciously savory with generous hints of salt. Unrefined in both taste and texture, this strangely addictive organic nut butter has amazing depth of flavor and nary a hint of sweetness. Of the two, this was the nutty concoction that left me wanting for more. And yes, Essential Living Foods uses Truly RAW, unpasteurized, living Almonds from Europe to make this nourishing organic nut butter.
