Jem Raw Organic Nut Butters

There’s nothing quite like a spoonful of nut butter to curb those sweet tooth cravings.  And today, there are SO many different varieties of nut butter on the market.  From the original peanut butter to almond butter, cashew butter, sunflower seed butter, hazelnut butter…the list is quite extensive.  If it’s a nut, chances are it has been turned into a nut butter of some sort.

I recently had the chance to try a variety of Jem Raw Organics nut butters.  The four flavors I sampled were: Cinnamon Red Maca, Cashew Cardamom, Hazelnut Raw Cacao, and Superberry Maqui Camu.  Each of these nut butters are certified organic, gluten free, non-GMO and vegan.  Jem Raw Organics is based out of Bend, Oregon where they handcraft organic and sprouted nut butters in small batches.  Their nut butters are unlike any I’ve ever tasted: smooth, full of unique flavor, and have a high quality taste superior to other nut butters on the market.

Cinnamon Red Maca

  • My personal favorite
  • Ingredients: almonds, coconut sugar, maca, ground cinnamon, vanilla
  • Delicious cinnamon-almond flavor that reminds me of a freshly baked cinnamon roll
  • Silky smooth, creamy texture

Hazelnut Raw Cacao

  • Close second favorite flavor
  • Ingredients: hazelnuts, coconut sugar, cacao nibs, vanilla
  • Rich, chocolate hazelnut flavor (the hazelnut is quite prominent, but in a good way)
  • Smooth, thick texture

Superberry Maqui Camu

  • Ingredients: almonds, coconut sugar, maqui berry, lucuma, vanilla, camu
  • Sweet vanilla-almond flavor with a hint of berry (unlike anything I’ve tasted before)
  • Silky smooth, creamy texture

Cashew Cardamom

  • Ingredients: almonds, cashews, coconut sugar, lucuma, vanilla cardamom
  • Very sweet with a strong cardamom flavor (if you like cardamom you will enjoy this one)
  • Silky smooth, creamy texture

Each of these nut butters has a deliciously unique flavor and smell.  They are perfect by the spoonful or drizzled atop muffins/bread/cake as a tasty sweet treat.

Jem Raw Organics sells their products in a variety of sizes: 1.25 oz, 6 oz and 16 oz, so you can choose to sample their nut butters or buy a full sized jar.  They make great gifts for the holidays too!
