Notes

  • STORAGE: Can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Perfect for meal prep for the week!
  • TOASTED NUTS:Add chopped pecans/walnuts to a baking sheet and toasting them in the oven (400 degrees Fahrenheit) for 5-10 minutes, tossing them halfway to avoid browning on one side.
  • NUT BUTTER: If preferred, you can always substitute peanut butter with Almond butter, SunButter (perfect for allergy-free needs!), Tahini (Sesame Seed Butter), Hazelnut Butter, etc.
  • SWEETENER: Instead of Agave, you can simply use pure maple syrup or additional mashed bananas.
