Dr Jockers Comments:
Many people struggle to digest nuts and must stay off of them for at least a period of time in order to get well. My autoimmune nutrition plan takes out all nuts for 30-90 days before reintroduction in order to reduce inflammation and improve gut health. This recipe allows these individuals to still enjoy the smooth and buttery flavor of nut butter on a nut-free diet.
This recipe is loaded with good fats, clean proteins, anti-oxidants and enzymes. This digests very well as the vast majority of the fats are from coconut which is full of MCT’s which do not depend on bile for breakdown. This is easier on the digestive system than typical nut butters and is full of fat burning ingredients you will love.
I make this using my the Chocolate or Vanilla flavored Brain SuperCharge powder which is basically a super neurologically stabilizing multi-vitamin with high quality, hypo-allergenic, vegan protein powder. You can also try using our bone broth protein or our Gut Healing Protein for extra gut support nutrients.
