I received product from KALOT for the purpose of this post. All opinions are my own.
Do you know when you try something new, love it and then wonder how you’ve lived so long without it? I can think of dozens of things (mostly food-related) that fall on that list for me. To name a few:
-Kombucha. Seriously, how did I live?
-My dog. I didn’t have a pet for 13 years of my life and I cry when I think about that time.
-Florida. Apparently I lived most of my life in the Northeast and yet now I FREAK out when it’s below 60 degrees here.
That’s how I feel about KALOT Superfood Fusions. I don’t remember a time when I didn’t eat it almost every day. Well, I do remember, but I choose not to.
Last August my mom told me she bought a new brand of almond butter that she loved. Great, I thought, until she wouldn’t tell me the brand name. She didn’t want me to “become addicted to another nut butter.” I wish I made that sad-truth up. Turns out she was just saving it for a care package and I got two jars in the mail next week.
What does KALOT mean? (source)
1. To add delicious nutritiousness
2. Turning the ordinary into EXTRA-ordinary
What are KALOT products?
Nutrient-rich blends of fruit, nuts, seeds and spices. Full of antioxidants, essential minerals, healthy fats and deliciousness. I added that last one. All natural, no palm fruit oil, no added sugar, dairy free, gluten-free and many are Paleo-friendly.
A few flavor combinations:
-Blueberries, Cinnamon and Walnuts (my favorite)
-Dark Chocolate and Coconut
-Chocolate and Cherries
Truthfully, I usually eat KALOT like I eat most nut butters: by the spoonful. But because the product is naturally sweet and filled with flavor, I thought it could be a could base and/or addition to a dessert. I chose to make flourless cookies because a) I’m lazy, b) flour is messy and c) I’m on a calculated risk-taking high. Yes, that applies to cooking.
Made with just a few ingredients and easily customizable, these cookies feature KALOT Cashew Butter with Chocolate Chips and Chia Seeds. The fact that there is already chocolate in the jar eliminates another ingredient, but I won’t blame you for adding more.
