Baru Nuts {Have You Tried Them?}

Today, we’re sharing our latest obsession – Baru Nuts.

Known as the world’s healthiest nut, these little gems are packed with fiber, protein and have antioxidant power. They also provide numerous minerals including potassium, calcium, magnesium, manganese, copper and zinc.

Plus they’re not just good for you, they’re good for the planet!

Baru nuts grow wild in the Brazilian savanna. As the popularity of the nuts has increased, the trees are no longer being cut and used for timber. The trees are now being preserved, which helps maintain the ecosystem in this area. Baru nuts grow in perfect balance with nature and do not require external water sources or irrigation. They are grown without the use of pesticides, artificial fertilizers or chemicals.

We think baru nuts are as delicious as they are healthy. Served roasted, they taste like a mix between peanuts and cashews with a hint of cocoa. We love them in blended into smoothies, dips and pesto, tossed into salads, or as a delicious, creamy nut butter.
