Spoon University, an online food and recipe resource for college students, has named Maisie Jane’s Creamy Cashew Butter in its list of top 5 best nut butters. Spoon University invites college students from campuses all over the nation to contribute recipes and articles. Since our nut butters have some amazing health benefits and are a great snack to take on the go, we’re excited college students are learning about them and loving the taste of them too.

What if I told you that there was a Nutella substitute with 3x less sugar, 3X more fiber, and 10x more flavor. Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut Butter is sweet, nutty, and rich and doesn’t taste overly sugary and processed.
This nut butter is best slathered on your morning toast or pancakes, but can also be incorporated into many desserts. Justin’s website has a wide range of recipes to drool over.
Cashew butter is one of my favorites because it’s so buttery and rich. After trying Trader Joe’s salted cashew butter, I realized that the salt greatly took away from all the cashew flavour. Maisie Jane’s brand is unsalted, smooth, and thick.
What’s more, for every purchased 12 oz. jar of cashew butter, Maisie Jane’s donates $.05 towards bee research.
While a little more expensive than other nut butters, it’s worth the treat every once in a while. I recommend changing your classic PB&J sandwich into a CB&J (it’s truly life-changing).
Grocery shopping as a college student can be overwhelming at the least. There are so many options and sometimes it’s easiest to stick to the classic Jif, Skippy, or Smuckers. But it’s 2017 y’all— time to get adventurous (and a little nutty)!
Whether you’re a busy college student, working professional, or stay-at-home parent, save yourself a trip to the grocery store and purchase Maisie’s Jane’s nut butter online. Then get started making some delicious, yet easy, recipes you can download below.
