georgia+grinders8Georgia Grinders is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia and manufactures all their nut butters there as well. The idea for their company blossomed from a recipe that Jamie’s grandfather had created in a search for whole, health boosting foods. Jamie has carried on his legacy by adding to his original recipe and creating some really amazing new flavors. What I love most about their products is that they are just real food. There aren’t any added sugars, or sugar substitutes, or oils. I always look at the ingredients on products before trying them and thought I must have missed the sugar content when I tasted their Maple Caramel Almond Nut Butter. Nope, nothing added, just one gram of sugar. And it tastes so good! You can feel good about indulging in these energy packed nut butters.

Salted Dark Chocolate Maple Caramel Almond Butter Bites

By Angie Gouchenour

8-10 bites

georgia+grinders22Ingredients

3 Tablespoons + 2 teaspoons ground up pretzels (Measuring after grinding)*

1 Tablespoons Sugar 2.0

¼ cup Georgia Grinders Maple Caramel Almond Butter

1 teaspoon coconut oil – melted

1 ½ ounces Dark Chocolate + ½ teaspoon coconut oil

Sea salt

Directions

In a medium bowl combine the ground up pretzels, Sugar 2.0, almond butter, and melted coconut oil

Stir until it comes together in a “dough ball”

Place the dough between two pieces of parchment paper on a flat, moveable, surface (I used a small cutting board)

Roll the dough to approximately ¼ inch thick *

Make the dough as square as possible

Keep between the paper and place in the freezer for 20-30 minutes

Before removing the dough from the freezer use a small bowl to melt your chocolate and coconut oil in the microwave

Heat for 30 seconds, stir, heat another 30 seconds, and remove and stir until the rest of the chocolate melts

Remove the dough from the freezer and cut into squares*

Carefully lift one square at a time with a butter knife and place in the chocolate

Completely cover and lift with a fork and transfer to clean parchment paper using the same flat surface

Sprinkle with a little sea salt

Continue until you have finished all the squares*

Do not cover, but return to the freezer and chill for 10 minutes

You can store in the freezer or refrigerator in a sealed container once the chocolate sets

NOTES

*Before grinding the pretzels measure approximately a rounded ¼ cup.

*I am not very good at getting square corners so there are some smaller pieces left over these are perfect for dipping at the end when all the chocolate is gone, and you can safe them for yourself. 😊
