Treats for Mom
Mother’s Day is coming up this weekend and if you are looking for something truly special to make for mom, I have got the perfect treat for you. These spiced up nutty blondies are melt-in-your-mouth delicious, and they are so incredibly simple that you will want to make them over and over again. I took the liberty of doubling the recipe for an extra big batch. You can thank me later!
Brownies with Benefits
You’re guaranteed to score some major brownie points with these tasty treats packed with good-for-you crunchy almond spread. Anti-oxidant rich almond butter is not only good for your heart, but it also helps lower blood pressure, helps control blood sugar and can even help with weight control! Now that’s what I call the perfect gift. You can read more about these incredible health benefits at NaturAlmond, my absolute favorite hand-crafted Georgia-made almond butter line.
Mother’s Day Special
As the owner of NaturAlmond and Georgia Grinders and mom of two young children, Jaime Foster counts on nut butters as a nutritious, yet delicious, on-the-go snack as do countless other busy moms. In honor of Mother’s Day, she’s offering a 15% discount by entering the code MothersDay towards the purchase of Almond, Peanut or Cashew butter.
Suggested Wine Pairings
Look for a dessert wine that will compliment and accentuate the sweet, nutty flavors of these rich blondies. My personal favorite is liquid gold Sauternes which introduces nuances of sweet honeysuckle and dried fruits. A Tawny Port, with its soft, caramel flavor, or an ultra-rich PX Sherry would also be excellent pairings. If you prefer lighter styles, try a delicate sparkling Moscato d’Asti or Brachetto d’Acqui, two of my many Italian favorites.
