Tips + Suggestions

SWAP peanut for other nuts and seed butter or tahini – the flavour will change; you may need to add salt.

 

SWAP Jalapeno for other chillies you have.  CHILLI amount depends on your spice level + the chilli you use.  Deseed chilli – blend & taste – Adjust spiciness to your liking.   

 

ADD ¼ cup cashews instead of a nut or seed butter.

 

BUYING ORGANIC peanuts & peanut butter is important because of harmful carcinogenic chemicals used in conventionally grown peanuts. 

 

SWAP Rice vinegar for lime juice.

 

MAKE YOUR OWN peanut butter – it’s easy + quick + the BEST peanut butter; you will EVER EAT simple blend 2cups of peanuts & a pinch of salt until it forms peanut butter consistency.  

 

PLEASE READ THE LABEL – peanut butter should be peanuts + salt!  Even organic peanut butter companies add unnecessary “stuff”, including sugar which we don’t need more of and palm oil which has a huge environmental impact.
