Homemade Nuttzo PF

September 19, 2010

So, I’m not sure if I mentioned this, but I was formally refused a sample of Nuttzo. Yes, they denied me and denied me again. I tried with a different name and a different email. Nothing. They had already determined their blog partners and they were not interested.

Well, lucky for me, I won Holly’s Nuttzo giveaway! I was able to taste Nuttzo without having to pay an arm and a leg. However, after tasting Nuttzo, I must attest…it was just as good as it is marketed 😦 As I am extremely stubborn, I decided that I would make myself my own personal brand of Nuttzo!

It turned out beautifully, almost a whipped consistency. The recipe is almost the exact same ingredients, give or take a few. I promise, you will not be disappointed by this recipe!

Alyssa’s Nuttzo PF (they can’t deny you this!)

1 cup salted cashews

1 cup walnuts, raw

1 cup almonds, raw

3 tbsp chia seeds

3 tbsp ground flax (whole seeds would work too)

3 tbsp psyllium husks (great source of fiber)

Directions: Place all ingredients in your food processor. Blend! Scrape the sides and devour after the mixture is blending smoothly and freely.

    I’ve never tried Nuttzo before either, but it looks rather interesting! Maybe I should try your recipe first!

    Ah! Thank you Alyssa! I cannot wait to try this mix when I go home this coming weekend (where my little food processor awaits our reunion).

    Hope you had a great weekend =)

    Good for you Alyssa! Looks and sounds delicious – I’m sure I couldn’t tell the difference! 🙂

    I’ve never heard of the Nuttzo line before, but looking at that ingredient list… I may have to make a batch for myself!! This looks right up my alley.. my alley of deliciousness that is, Haha!

      Nuttzo is delish, but extremely overpriced in my opinion! Let me know if you try the recipe!

    Hmm. I could easily get those nuts at my farmers market… Then all I would need would be chia seeds and psyllium husks.

      Holly, your natural food store should have both. I got both of mine in the bulk section of Natural Grocers 🙂 I know that Whole Foods should also have them!

      • September 20, 2010 3:31 pm

        I’ll have to check out our local natural foods store! Unfortunately we don’t have a Whole Food nearby. Sad face!

      • September 20, 2010 3:40 pm

        😦 So sorry to hear that! I’m waiting for the day I don’t have the conveniences of organic grocery or natural foods stores! I will have to adapt and overcome!

        Thankfully our Giant has a really nice natural food section. Even if we didn’t have a local natural store, we’d get along okay.

        Lucky you!

    Alyssa, what brand of psyllium husks do you use? I’ve tried getting it before and got confuse because they come in pill form with powder in them and also I saw a psyllium husks powder container?

    • September 21, 2010 11:24 am

      Lea, mine was in bulk at the natural food store. No pills, just the husk!

    I’ve been dying to try the peanut free Nuttzo but I just can’t bring myself to spend $18+ on a jar of nut butter. I’ll have to try this recipe! Thanks! 😀

      I hope you like it! I was able to get a free sample of the “real” Nuttzo, but yes, I refused to pay that much per jar! Enjoy 🙂

    Just saw this at Sprouts for over $$$ 12/jar…. Gotta order those husks.

    Just stumbled on some husks in the bulk section of a local market. SO excited to try!!!

    I forget that processing nuts takes a bit in the Crusinart processor. It seems a but dry and I was tempted to add water or some oil but just kept stopping periodically to scrape the sides. Like magic and patience it turned smooth w/o adding liquids. The flavor is good but the texture is a little crunchy. Were the chia seeds supposed to be soaked?

    okay. I will give it time to soak before testing it again. i was so excited to taste it. How do you use Nuttzo as a spread? in baking? Now that I have these husks how can i use up this package in my regular cooking/baking? I have pinned a bunch on pinterest but i’m always open for suggestions/tips.

      I love using Nuttzo as any nut butter! On bananas, stuffed in dates, on GF toast, in baking, you name it :-). Psyllium husks are great for added fiber. I think you can use them as you would Metamucil by mixing it in drinks, etc. I also add it to my baking mixes for extra fiber…I think it helps hold everything together 🙂
