3 Delicious Ways to Enjoy Heinen’s Fresh Ground Nut Butters

Not all nut butters are created equal!

When shopping for nut butters at the grocery store, there’s one thing you should always look for: a simple ingredient list! Naturally loaded with protein, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals, nuts are nutritional powerhouses in their whole and ground forms. Sadly, most store-bought peanut butters are overly processed with added sugars, oils and fats, which essentially strips the nutritional value.

If you’re looking for nut butters you can trust, check out the fresh ground selection in Heinen’s Produce Department. Available in peanut, honey roasted peanut, walnut, almond and cashew, these nut butters are fresh ground with little-to-no added ingredients at Heinen’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Warrensville Heights, Ohio.

Equally sweet and savory with a satisfying texture, these nut butters are an ideal addition to traditional PB&J sandwiches, smoothies and toast, but to help you think outside of the jar, I’ve concocted three unique, minimal effort recipes that put Heinen’s fresh ground nut butters at center stage.

  • Iced Peanut Butter Banana Latte
  • Honey Roasted Peanut Butter Fudge
  • Honey Roasted Peanut Butter and Blackberry Compote Waffles

While these recipes feature Heinen’s fresh ground honey roasted nut butter, any nut butter from their selection will work just as well!
