All about Betsy’s Best

Betsy’s Best is a brand that I absolutely love and trust and it is one of my go-to brands for gourmet nut butter. They use only all-natural ingredients to produce some amazing and incredible nut butter.

Carefully crafted by Betsy, our natural cashew butter with toasted coconut features a bold and sophisticated taste thanks to superfood ingredients like roasted cashews, chia seeds, Himalayan pink salt, and toasted coconut.

Betsy’s Best gourmet nut butter comes in five different flavors and comes in four different types of nut butter (almond, cashew, sunflower seed, and peanut butter). The nut butter from Betsy’s Best is not your typical, ordinary nut butter, these are extraordinary! I could tell from the moment that I opened up the jar that this nut butter from Betsy’s Best would be a quality ingredient in my energy ball recipe.

    OH I am so sad! I LOVE love love stuff like this but I can’t eat it anymore since I had my gallbladder removed! I can’t eat fat anymore!

  3. organizationaltoast

    We love no bake energy balls in our house and honestly I never thought to use cashew butter! And this recipe looks extra tasty with the almonds and coconut. Yum! I can’t wait to try this!

  4. Bailey

    I’ve never tried cashew butter before! I’m so intrigued. My mother in law LOVES energy ball recipes but she always uses almond butter. Definitely going to have to grab some cashew butter and make these for her!
