For this week’s Chipper Chipmunk Friday Favorites, I’ll be spreading the love with an awesome, California-based company, called Barney Butter. Get ready to hang ten, because your tastebuds will be ridin’ a nutritious wave of yummy goodness with every spoonful of their skin-free almonds.
That’s right! These almonds are skinny dippin’, which accounts for Barney Butter’s uniquely smooth taste and texture. Beyond the amazing flavor and health benefits of noshin’ on these nut butters, you can feel great about supporting a company that ethically sources their non-GMO certified ingredients, uses BPA-free, 100% post consumer recycled jars, and supports the bio-diversity of their almond suppliers as well as the Xerces Society. Check out their full story and beliefs at BarneyButter.com.
I was fortunate enough to stumble across this brand while shopping for almond butter to use in my Matcha-Pistachio-Banana Bread recipe. The colors and simple exterior of their jars, drew me in. Then I saw the non-GMO verified stamp, whole food ingredient list, and an adorable quote that read, “There’s nothing Barney Butter and a spoon can’t fix.” SOLD! On my first go, I bought one of each! How could I choose between all of this awesomeness before me? Plus I was in the prime of baking season, so I easily rationalized my new obsession. (Not to mention the surprising affordability, since the company believes that..”food should be affordable and accessible, not just for those who can pay a high price tag. While almond prices fluctuate, we always try to offset rising prices with coupons and promotions.” )
