There's politics and then there's POLITICS. You know the kind I mean, the politics that really impact our everyday lives, the politics that shape our communities, the politics that lead us to ask the big questions in life. I'm talking about peanut butter politics.
So in a world of hard choices between Hilary or Trump, in or out, crunchy or smooth it's never been more crucial to get yourself fully informed of all options before committing to ticking your nut butter ballot paper. So here to clue you in, I have a new candidate profile ready for interview.
In a nut butter world- I'm a crunchy kind of girl. So the extra texture and crunch from Funky Nut Co Four Seed peanut butter was inevitably going to ex-SEED my current peanut butter standards. It's got a consistency not too thick- nor too runny. It's also packed full of extra flavour and texture thanks to the addition of ...
Chia Seeds- a tiny little bead of a seed bursting with calcium and omega 3. Commonly used to make delightfully 'frogspawny' puddings but, in my opinion, much better suited to be a peanut butter side-kick.
Pumpkin Seeds- Pumpkins are not just for Halloween, and there certainly isn't anything scary about these seeds distinctive taste or immune system boosting properties.
Sunflower seeds- Full of essential oils and some even say sunshine itself. - Now that's flower power!
Flax Seeds- These guys can enrich your body, particularly your heart, they also boast a boost of omega-3 (without the fishy smell).
So the seeds in this nutbutter, they mean business: adding not just bodily perks, but texture, taste AND a totally unique Funky Nut experience that can be enjoyed in many context...including these:
Peanut butter is like one of those friends who can pull off ANY outfit. A truly versatile nut who dresses up any dreary dry cracker or butter-less bagel. Does the addition of four seeds limit the peanut's talent? I hear you ask... well I certainly don't think so!
Here are my favourite 3 ways this seeded nut butter has enriched my munchings:
I quite often 'nuttify' my breakfast time. The four seeds only enhanced my warming chocolatey oats further with a tasty textural crunch, as well as a juxtaposing melt that make a sexy melty swirl a-top piping hot porridge.
Originally packed full of protein and now even MORE packed?! The addition of a seeded butter to my protein-ball recipe enhanced it's power potential. The Funky Nut Co four seeds gave it a more 'natural' and 'wholesome' taste. Try the recipe for yourself here.
-By the spoon:
A spoonful of sugar may help the medicine go down, but a spoonful of peanut butter is where the real miracle is at. Nutritious, delicious, and a palate-stickingly pleasing past-time which the four seeds fully promote.
So I've introduced you to the 4 seeds, 3 ways and now finally it's the two words:
It's rare that the term 'funky' is justifiably used, however, the Funky Nut Co have been bold enough to take nut butters to brave new and, dare I say it, funky level! Not just with seeds, but Chinese spices, m & m's, Crème egg and oh so many more. One day, (student budget permitting) I will have dipped my spoon into each and every one of their wide array of spreads. And, rest assured, as my funky journey progresses, I can spread the funky nut butter word to you too.

Take a sip from the cup of my mind, and let the thoughts brew...
