Going Nuts— For Nut Butters, That Is

by

Fall may be all about Pumpkins and Spice, but when the weather turns cold and the leaves turn orange, I like to dig in to my stash of Nut Butters and create some sweet, but healthy recipes to keep my taste buds happy and my figure flattering. Check out some of my all time favorite uses for the nut butter collection you probably already have in your pantry!

Buff Bake Snickerdoodle Overnight Oats

  • 2 tbsp. BuffBake Snickerdoodle
  • 1/2c Bobs Quick Oats
  • 1/2c Almond or Cashew Milk
  • 2oz Unsweetened Cultured Coconut Yogurt

This one is my favorite. Do you ever think about throwing away that can of nut butter even though there is probably a few spoonfuls left in there? Well, try this trick. Take your almost empty can of nut butter and add in 1/2c of oats, 1/2c of almond or cashew milk and stir. Leave in fridge overnight and the next morning add in 2oz of unsweetened yogurt and some of your favorite toppings.

    Your donut recipe has 0 for a lot of the measurements and calls for 25 eggs and 50 tsp of baking powder, which I know is not correct.
