How is already almost Christmas!? I don’t even know.
If you’re anything like me, you’re probably the worst gift-giver ever. You and I show up at places where everyone else is bestowing gifts, and we’re the ones awkwardly standing in the corner, empty handed because we either forgot, ran out of time, or lacked the creativity to think of something gift-worthy.
On the upside, we did manage to find a really good sale on boots for ourselves earlier, so go us!
I know, we’re the worst. But I have a solution.
Nuts. OK, not just nuts, but nut butter!
Everyone loves nut butter and it’s such a guaranteed way to make someone’s day. Plus, chances are they’ll actually use and enjoy it unlike some other gifts – which is the best kind of gift to receive.
Here’s the deal with hazelnuts. They’re extremely healthy for you.
Beyond just being high in protein and healthy fats, hazelnuts are the tree nut with the highest amount of folate (helps create normal red blood cells), they’re high in fiber (important for digestion), and rich in manganese (needed for bone formation) and copper (needed for iron absorption).
They’re also high in biotin, which is a B Vitamin that helps grow strong, healthy hair.
I rest my case. You need hazelnuts in your life.
Not only do you get the health benefits of hazelnuts, you also get a dose of cinnamon, which everyone knows is high in antioxidants, has anti-inflammatory properties, and can lower blood sugar levels. Not to mention it tastes like the holidays.
Lucky for you this edible gift requires just 3 ingredients and 30 minutes to make.
And, it’s totally customizable. Sub pumpkin pie spice for the cinnamon for a more autumnal feel, or swap it for melted dark chocolate to go for my 4-Ingredient Vegan Nutella instead! Who would turn away Nutella? No one with good taste, am I right?
I hope you all love this nut butter. It’s:
