Justin’s Maple Cashew Nut Butter Nutrition Facts

If you are curious about the nutrition facts for this cashew butter I will fill you in a bit! A serving size of Justin’s Maple Cashew Butter is 2 tablespoons. This serving size has 200 calories, 15 grams of fat, 11 grams of carbs, 1 gram of fiber, 5 grams of sugar, and 4 grams of protein. These energy balls use 1/3 of a cup of cashew butter.

As you can see, these energy balls are not a low-calorie food and are only meant to enjoy in moderation. They are a healthy snack when you only pop one or two in your mouth. Don’t go overboard and try to eat the entire batch in one day (like my family does… lol).

Not too long ago I posted a recipe on my blog for oatmeal chocolate chip energy balls that I created with Justin’s Cashew Butter. That recipe is also gluten-free. It is not vegan as written but I do believe you could always swap out the honey in that recipe and use some pure maple syrup instead. I used Justin’s Cashew Butter (plain) to create this oatmeal chocolate chip balls.
