Nut Butter Notes

  • Vary your nut butters always using raw unsalted kinds such as almond butter.
  • Try sunflower seed butter or coconut butter for different flavor treats.
  • Use Nut Butter to stuff dates, prunes, etc.

Chocolate Chews

6 ounces reduced fat cream cheese
4 teaspoons cream (such as fat free Half & Half)
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
5 teaspoons chunky peanut butter
1 package sugar-free chocolate pudding
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

With a fork blend the first six ingredients together. Roll into tiny balls and roll in nuts. Store in refrigerator or freezer as these are better when cold.
