Baklava JOYÀ Bliss Nut Butter on a piece of toast

Watch out, this stuff is dangerous! Inspired by chocolate baklava, this nut butter is bursting with flavor and has a rich decadent texture. Fragrant toasted pistachios and walnuts are the perfect pairing with JOYÀ’s Bliss cacao elixir which is packed with powerful herbal extracts and spices including cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves! 

The ways to eat this are endless, but my favorite way is BY THE SPOONFUL! Or, when I'm feeling virtuous, on a piece of hearty whole grain toast!

Ingredients

  • ½ cup shelled pistachios, toasted 
  • 1 cup walnuts, toasted 
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons JOYÀ’s Bliss cacao elixir blend 
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup, honey or date syrup
  • Optional: 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
