Chia Peanut ButtersMADE BY YUMMARI IN NEW YORK, NEW YORK
Someone said to us today, "chia is the new flax seed and is about to blow up." Yes, we have people saying stuff like that to us all the time.
Why? Chia seeds are super duper extra nutritious, higher in Omega-3 fatty acids than flax, high in fiber, high in protein (one ounce contains 4 grams!). They also contain a zillion minerals including phosphorus, manganese, calcium, potassium, copper, iron, niacin, zinc and sodium, all essential. What's also really cool about chia is that when water is added, after 30 minutes they form sort of a gel. This chemical reaction is what takes place in your stomach and slows down the digestive process, which is good for you.
Not bad for a crop that was popular in Mexico 3000 years ago but banned in the 16th century by the Spanish conquest due to its association with Aztec customs.
Okay, enough about how good it is for you. We know you care about how it tastes. It's thick and creamy but with a little graininess to it. Rich, nutty and delicious.
A smooth, delicious peanut butter that gets a slight crunch from tiny chia seeds.
Also smooth-style, this peanut butter features dark chocolate!
Peanut butter + coffee has always been a favorite of ours, and now they're combined perfectly in one delicious jar. Yum. Wake up!

Tomorrow, make everyone in the family a CB+J sandwich. We like this paired with Anarchy's 3 Berry preserves on grainy whole wheat bread. We also have been known to dip a Z cracker or a bit of lavash directly into the jar. Really delicious on matzah right now.
