Jem Cinnamon Red Maca Almond Butter

By Laura Holloway on June 06, 2013

You can't deny the phenomenal nutritional benefits of nuts. Packed with protein, fiber and healthy fats, nuts such as almonds are nutritional powerhouses. Great for helping to maintain a healthy weight and supporting heart health, nuts really ought to be a vital part of any good diet. Nut butters help provide you with the benefits of nuts in a creamy, comforting format that can satisfy any appetite. One of my favorite go-to snacks is almond butter with a touch of honey, either paired with sliced apples or spread on some toast.

Jem offered to send us their award-winning Cinnamon Red Maca Almond Butter to try, and I was really impressed once I cracked the jar open. I was met with the smooth familiarity of almond butter, and surprised by the unique and absolutely decadent flavour blend of maca, cinnamon and coconut palm sugar. Since most nut butters come as single-ingredient spreads and can be slightly drying, I usually opt to blend them with honey. Unfortunately, sleepy mornings can result in a sticky mess, as the honey drizzles off my morning toast. Jem Cinnamon Red Maca Almond Butter helps make these mornings run a lot smoother. Blended in perfect harmony, this nut butter requires no additional ingredients, as coconut sugar adds a perfect sweetness and is complemented by the warmth of cinnamon and a subtle hint of butterscotch provided by maca. It is so delicious it can be eaten right off of the spoon, so a little willpower might be required to put that spoon back down!

Perfect on toast, great drizzled on a banana sliced lengthwise or dipped with apples, Jem Cinnamon Red Maca Almond Butter makes healthy snacking easy, and is truly a superfood. Jem uses Fair-Trade, non-GMO sprouted almonds, soaked, dehydrated and stone ground at low temperatures to preserve nutritional quality. This process also improves digestibility and nutrient-absorption, as soaking reduces mineral-blocking phytic acid. Maca not only adds a mild, earthy flavor, but this herbal adaptogen is said to help increase stamina, combat fatigue and stress, and even boost libido. Coconut palm sugar is a low-glycemic sweetener that is rich in minerals and provides consistent energy via delayed glucose absorption and the nutritional boost of minerals.

Jem is unique in the field of nut butters, choosing to soak raw nuts for improved digestion and stone-grind at low temperatures to preserve nutrition and create an extra creamy spread. The decadence of the Cinnamon Red Maca Almond Butter has me excited to try the other blends in Jem's line of superfood spreads: Maqui Camu Super Berry Butter, Coconut Cardamom Almond Butter and Chocolate Hazelnut Spread. I have no doubt these will be enjoyed right off the spoon as well!
