Julie's Real Grain-Free Granola & Nut Butters

It all began with Founder Julie Fox who not only believed in good health but good food as well. It wasn't until her husband Mike was diagnosed with Barrett's Esophagus which made her realize what those words meant.

Julie and Mike got serious about their health and began making changes within their diet by removing dairy, grains, sugars, and processed foods behold the Paleo diet!

Julie not only made the commitment to her husband Mike to help him heal through food but herself as well and began making scrumptious nut based snacks such as cashew butters, almond butters and grain free granola that were made with real whole food ingredients which is how Julie's Real was born!

Ever since I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism a few years ago I have adapted to the Paleo diet which has done wonders I too have eliminated grains, dairy, processed foods , peanuts and soy.

What I have realized when shopping for groceries is that there aren't many paleo based granola on the market not to mention nut butters.

I am a huge fan of breakfast from pancakes to muffins sprinkled to perfection with granola for a crunchy topping even smoothies with nut butter to provide a thick creamy texture.

Lately I've been hearing about Julie's Real granola & nut butters all over Instagram and thanks to naturallysweetrd on Instagram I was provided with products for winning her giveaway and couldn't wait to dig into the nut butters and granola!

The granola-bilities are endless from smoothies, to pancakes, fresh fruit, even ice cream!

As for the nut butters you can spread them onto your favorite baked good from muffins, to bread, pancakes, waffles, or add to smoothies which I found myself doing it a lot !

I just couldn't resist their nutty smooth texture!

Anyway here is what I received 

Cinnamon Vanilla Bean Almond Butter: made with dry roasted almonds, organic honey, virgin coconut oil, cinnamon, ground vanilla bean and sea salt.

What I loved was not only the texture but in the jar itself was the most delightful amount of warm cinnamon throughout it mingled together quite perfectly with smooth vanilla along with the toasty almonds. 

I had made some blueberry collagen protein muffins and topped it with some almond butter for a post workout snack that was to die for with plump juicy blueberries that popped in your mouth along with creamy almond butter !

Cacao Espresso Almond Butter: made with dry roasted almonds, virgin coconut oil, organic honey, organic cacao nibs, espresso bean, ground vanilla beans and sea salt.
By far this nut butter was my favorite and I'm not just saying that because I love coffee or chocolate for that matter, OK I am but so what! The texture was melt in your mouth creamy with sweet honey, vanilla, crunchy chocolaty cacao nibs along with bold espresso beans . My favorite way to use this butter was on top of some homemade graham crackers reminding me of a S more's but without the gooey marshmallow. 

Cinnamon Vanilla Bean Cashew Butter: made with dry roasted cashews, virgin coconut oil, organic honey, cinnamon, ground vanilla beans and sea salt.
The cinnamon vanilla cashew butter was delightfully smooth with creamy notes of vanilla, sweet honey and warm cinnamon being the perfect spread to any bagel, pancakes, muffins or fruit.

Coconut Vanilla Bean Cashew Butter: made with dry roasted cashews, unsweetened coconut, virgin coconut oil, organic honey, cinnamon, ground vanilla beans and sea salt
 What can I say about the cinnamon vanilla bean cashew butter? Have you ever had toasted coconut before? Think creamy cashew butter mixed with sweet shreds of nutty coconut along with warm cinnamon that's been sprinkled with a touch of sea salt, smooth vanilla and floral honey.The creamy texture of the butter was amazing it was smooth, nutty, and oh so sweet! My favorite way to use the cashew butter was on top of a Mikey's English muffin bringing out the nuttiness from the coconut on top of the warm and toasty muffin topped with fresh berries, a little granola and coconut chips!
Grain-Free Granola Cacao Coconut : made with almonds, pecans, organic honey, unsweetened coconut, organic cacao nibs, virgin coconut oil, ground vanilla bean and sea salt.
If you love chocolate then this will be a sweet indulgence for you! It offers that fresh baked cookie feel it's slightly chewy and crunchy from the nuts and the intense chocolate flavor melts in your mouth not in hands!

Cinnamon Vanilla Bean Grain-Free Granola: made with almonds, pecans, organic honey, unsweetened coconut, virgin coconut oil, ground vanilla beans, cinnamon and sea salt.

Think snicker-doodle cookie fresh from the oven soft and chewy with warm notes of cinnamon!

Each and every Julie's Real product that I received were unique in their own way from the creamy nut butters to the soft chewy granola they offered the right amount of flavor and texture! The cinnamon is the nut butters was distributed throughout the jar which I loved and the bold espresso beans that went along quite well with creamy cacao nibs!






I received no compensation for this post but was provided with samples of Julie's Real granola and nut butters to facilitate this review in exchange for my honest opinions which in fact are my own.

Eat IQbar

It all began with Founder Will Nitze where he majored in Psychology and Neuroscience at Harvard and became then fascinated by how the human brain works.

 When he entered the work environment he discovered he was having difficulty with his own brain where brain fog and fatigue were a daily occurrence, for a quick fix he turned to caffeinated beverages and sugary snacks just to focus only making the problem worse to his growing list of cognitive issues.

On a quest to get to the root of the problem he tried and tested all sorts of ways from getting more exercise and sleep as well.

When amphetamines showed a desire to be dependent with negative side effects he then went grain-free and ate a high in fat healthy diet which was developed by Brain Nutrition expert Dr. David Perlmutter and Dr. Mark Hyman.

Not long after Will traded in his beloved diet of pasta and bread for healthy swaps such as nuts and avocados he reached new heights with his cognitive performance.
