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.
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 egg
- 3/4 cup of KALOT Cashew Butter with Chocolate Chips and Chia Seeds (or nut butter of your choice)
- 2 tsp of honey
- 1 tsp of vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp of salt
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Blend all ingredients in food processor or mixer until combined.
- Refrigerate batter for 20-30 minutes.
- Bake on parchment-lined cookie sheet for 15 minutes.
- Optional: cocoa powder and/or additional chocolate chips

NUTTZO is obviously my favorite brand of nut butter…I have been with them for years and those crunchy nut butters are AMAZING! I think this recipe would be perfect with Nuttzo…Happy Friday friend! XOXO

I had a feeling they would be your favorite :) Nuttzo is great in baked goods! I used them in my beet bites.

You aren’t lying about this stuff! It’s seriously addicting! I had one with coffee in it before and it was game over. I might even be willing to say this is my favorite nut butter although I don’t often have it because it’s a little pricy and sometimes hard to find! These cookies look amazing. I think I’m obsessed with all of your recipes because they are all something I’d make :)

Yes I have the espresso one too! SO good. My biggest complaint is that it’s hard to find. Fresh Market sells it but usually only one flavor.
And I feel the same way about your recipes :)
Angela @ Happy Fit Mama says
I think I could love these KALOT! Sorry…couldn’t help myself. But seriously, these look amazing. I’ve never heard of KALOT but now I want to try it. YUM!
This was my favorite comment. I’m all about food puns :)
I still can’t get into kombucha!!! Help me!! lol these look so yummy. Bring me some next time we spin ;)

Ahh I meant to have you try some when you came over for dinner! I’ll bring you kombucha and cookies ;)
Brie @ Lean, Clean, & Brie says
Hmmm favorite brand of nut butter would have to be wild friends, but I really want to try out the buff bake nut butters because all the flavors sound delish! One thing that I love that I used to live without was breakfast. I used to hate waffles and pancakes and everything else associated with breakfast and now I am all about those breakfast foods!
I remember your post about hating breakfast foods! That’s something I’ve always loved but I know that’s not the case for most people. But now you can make up for it by eating breakfast at every meal :)
To be honest, I don’t have one nut butter I’m really in love with right now. I’ve been trying out a lot of different kinds but there isn’t one I’ve stuck to yet. I’ll need to try to get my hands on Kolat!
Fresh Market sells Kalot near me! These are the most diverse and flavorful nut butters I’ve seen.
Julia @ Lord Still Loves Me says
I’ve not tried a lot of nut butters, but I do love Justin’s maple almond butter… but this brand looks GOOD!
Julia @ Lord Still Loves Me recently posted…Blog Changes, Hair Dye, and Goats (Of Course)
That is another favorite in my house! The bigger the variety the better in my mind.
Amanda @ ExploringLifeAndThings says
Yuuuum this look so good! I made a breakfast cookie similar (but not really) to this last week and they were gone so quick! Something I used to live without- SWEET POTATOES. Why did I just discover them like 2 years ago.. I have no idea.
Amanda @ ExploringLifeAndThings recently posted…Faves from the week
Omg I have no idea how I survived without those either. Seriously eat sweet potatoes every day!
I’ve recently developed a cashew butter addiction and am totally okay with it. These cookies look AMAZING!!!
Diana recently posted…Skinny Zevia Cocktails
It’s a recent addiction of mine too! Not going anywhere anytime soon either.
These look INCREDIBLE! I’ve given up nut butter for Lent but as soon as Easter rolls around I will trying out this recipe.
We can’t get KALOT in the UK :( but some of the good brands over here include Meridian (http://www.meridianfoods.co.uk/) and Carley’s (http://www.carleys.co.uk/). I also like grinding my own in Whole Foods or buying large tubs of 100% nut butter from sports nutrition sites.
You are one good lady for giving up nut butter! I should do that one year.
I like grinding my own in Whole Foods too! Feels extra fresh. We should do a nut butter only exchange :)
Your mom sounds like my mom #confessionsofanutbutteraddict haha! These cookies look so yummy, I wish I could make them magically appear in front of me :)

Friggin used to ADORE cashews, when I could eat nuts! So weird how my body changed so much and now completely rejects all nuts :( Alas, I cannot eat cashews any longer. BOO! But these look so so so good!
It is weird how our bodies change over time. I used to be able to eat gluten like no one’s business…pre celiac of course :)
Kristy @ Southern In Law says
These look amaaaaaazing!
The food I really LOVE at the moment but never liked before is corn on the cob! Growing up I NEVER ate it because I hated how it would get stuck in my teeth and I hated how messy it was to eat, haha!
Kristy @ Southern In Law recently posted…Recent Things: Tomatoless Tomatoes, Kitchen Fails & New Addictions
In the summer there is nothing better than fresh corn on the cob! Although sometimes I cut it off the cob just because, you’re right, it can get messy ;)
Ellen @ My Uncommon Everyday says
I honestly don’t have a favorite brand of nut butter because they’re all so different and delicious. Everything from Justin’s Maple Almond to TJ’s crunchy peanut butter with chia and flax to plain ol’ creamy cashew butter is more than fine by me. These KALOT butters look awesome, too – so many interesting flavors! Naturally, then, these cookies look PERFECT and so easy. Yum! ?

I don’t discriminate against nut butters. The more in my cabinet the merrier! Thanks, Ellen! Hope you’re having a great weekend :)
