FIVE of 5 stars

Oh wow, I feel like I was tricked with this book. “Nut butters! It’s a book about grinding up nuts and spreading on toast! Super easy, super simple.”

Nope.

There are a LOT of recipes for different, delicious, oozy good nut butters, and just about all are made with ingredients you can get at any grocery story.

But then come the other recipes:
For breakfast: Coconut Crepes with Chocolate-Hazelnut Cashew Butter. Cardamom Banana Bread with Nut Butter Streusel.
A Savory chapter: Broccoli Quinoa Bowls with Walnut-Miso Dressing. Squash & Cauliflower Tacos with Almond Mole. Fresh Spring Rolls with Cardamom Satay Sauce.
Sweet Treats: Snickerdoodle Swirl Skillet Cookie. Turkish Coffee Chocolate Chip Cookies.

If those recipe titles don’t have your mouth watering yet, you should see the photographs that accompany them. And those are just a small sample of the amazing recipes included. I cannot open this book without my stomach growling and my mouth watering.

This book is so much more than a nut butter book. It does include the basics such as stocking your kitchen, storing different nuts and how to toast them, etc. The nut butters also sound scrumptious. But it’s the recipes using the nut butters that are absolutely fantastic and really raise this book to a level I was not expecting. I was not expecting such a special book, but this is one I need for my shelf and will likely be giving as Christmas presents as well.

Many thanks to NetGalley for allowing me an ARC in exchange for an honest review. I’ll be submitting my Weight Watchers bill to them shortly. 😉
