Oh Nuts!

My sweet friend, Sam at OH! Nuts, sent me an email a few weeks ago, asking if I’d like to try out a couple products from his site to blog about… YES PLEASE :)  Oh! Nuts has quite a variety to choose from, so it took me a little while to decide!  They’ve got bulk candies, nuts/seeds, dried fruits, chocolates, and even kosher treats at wholesale prices.  It’s not too late to order in time for Christmas, as many of these items (including gift baskets) would make excellent gifts.

Even sugar-free candy is available to order!  First hand experience?  Go for the sugar-free jelly bellies… buttered popcorn… YUM :)

Then… for people like my husband who can never get enough candy…

candy…Jelly fruit slices, gummy bears, laffy taffy, chocolate, jordan almonds, marizpan, rock candy (I know, right?!), jelly bellies, and fruit leather.  I can’t tell you the last time I saw rock candy ANYWHERE.  It used to be the coolest thing!  They actually have an entire section dedicated to “old fashioned” candies, which I thought was neat.  It contains things like ribbon candy, candy sticks, candy buttons, gum drops, and taffy.  Tt’s like an old-school candy store online!

The products that I ended up choosing, were the Once Again Creamy Natural Raw Almond Butter.

This stuff had my heart when I read that it only had one ingredient: raw almonds.  I used it to make two batches of cookies… and they’re already gone :D

From the manufacturer, “Once Again Nut Butter uses only the finest almonds to create our Raw Almond Butter. Unblanched almonds are milled smooth to create a delicious butter. This is a gluten free product.”

The second item I chose was Blanched Almond Flour (aka, Almond Meal).

almondmealIf you’re gluten-free, as I am, alternative flours are necessities!  I love the Oh! Nuts offers this. I plan to use my almond flour to re-create this recipe for Protein Chia Coconut Macaroons!  Stay tuned to see how they turn out! :)

A big thank you to Sam for sending me these products to try!  Love you guys at Oh! Nuts!
