I was recently introduced to Baru seeds by Organic Traditions and I love them! They taste like a cross between peanuts and cashews except they are nut-free & school-safe. Baru seeds are rich in plant-based protein as well as fiber and vitamin E.

Here I modified the Organic Traditions Baru Butter recipe to make a chocolatey adaptogenic version my whole family loves!
