|The Answer to Lunchbox Prayers + Refrigerator "Fudge" Cups!|
I remember thinking that the concept of Kween Granola Butter was GENIUS as soon as I heard about it. The delectable flavor and coziness of your favorite granola, alchemized into a drippy, spoonable, smearable consistency?! SIGN.ME.UP.
And then I tried it, and all of my (already high) expectations were EXCEEDED.
Kween Granola Butter is one of the most unique and addicting healthy snacks/spreads I've ever tried. Since my first jar several years ago, I've discovered multiple ways to enjoy all of the fabulous flavors (see below!), not the least of which is straight-up.
It's hard to believe that something so indulgent-tasting is healthy...it sure is! The ingredients are simple, made from real food and ALL ORGANIC: Gluten Free Oats, Flax, Olive Oil, Maple Syrup, Coconut Oil, Salt, Spices. Ummm...that's as good as it gets.
Perhaps best yet, Kween Granola Butter is the answer to every mom's (or parent's!) back-to-school prayers. Most schools don't allow students to bring food that includes nuts, because of severe and common allergies. While understandable, this creates a predicament, as peanut butter & jelly is traditionally the lunchbox staple of all staples.
ENTER KWEEN GRANOLA BUTTER! Completely nut and gluten-free, kiddos can SAFELY have their delicious sammich or dip every single day at school.
Or, after school, when ANY family member can enjoy my Refrigerator Granola Butter Cups!
These lil' cups are my favorite vehicle for Kween Granola Butter: they're totally pop-able, and you get a cool, 'fudgy' texture first, which then melts into creamy, buttery goodness. I've been all about the new Blueberry flavor topped with organic free-dried berries, but any of the flavors would work, and you can get creative with toppings.
Here are some other fun ways to go to town on this life-changing spread!
As a dip for fruit, particularly strawberries and bananas! Pro tip: freeze your banana pieces with a drizzle of Granola Butter on top, and it will taste like ice cream.
Drizzled over oatmeal or cereal
Blended into a smoothie or drizzled over a smoothie bowl
As a dip for (healthier) pretzels or sea salt potato chips (I like Quinn Pretzels and Jackson's Chips)
Old School Ants On a Log: celery, Kween Granola Butter, raisins or chocolate chips (I like Enjoy Life brand for vegan and nut-free)
Rolled up into a gluten-free wrap with a sprinkle of cinnamon (I love Siete Foods brand)
Mixed with a little maple syrup and use as a topping for french toast
Stirred into plain or low-sugar yogurt
Obviously as a sandwich spread, enjoyed solo between some good-quality gluten-free bread, with your favorite jam, fruit, sliced avocado (seriously!), chia seeds, coconut flakes or umm...bacon. (I like Cocobakes and Canyon Bakehouse)
