For the true, true stories behind this incredible foodstuff, read on.
Do we have enough nut butters in the world? My answer is, NO, not yet. RXBar heard my command and they have created this Vanilla Almond Butter with everything delicious all packed into one wrapper, one rectangular squishy packet of yum.
Almonds and egg whites bring satiation and nutrients for your whole body. Follow with just a smidge of dates, a squeeze of coconut oil, some sea salt, and a smattering of real vanilla seeds. What happens out of this alchemy is RXBAR's Vanilla Almond Butter, a packet of joy that will give you cookie dough flashbacks.
Give it a squeeze, then tear into the wrapper. Take little bites and sips and enjoy the decadent "dough-like" flavor. It must be the vanilla, but the resemblance is uncanny. You'll want to look at the label (as I did) to check to see if there's flour or chocolate chips. But no, just the goodness of fruit and nuts and egg white protein. Close your eyes to let the flavors dance in your mouth, combining into a symphony. Now, sedately fold up the wrapper, and carry on your day in bliss.
RXBAR started out making bars for those of us ready to "graduate" from the tried-and-true but overly sweet date & nut bars. RXBAR's original chewy snack bars are still delicious and a perfect addition to your day, make no mistake, but sometimes you also want something a little easier to spread on toast. Paleo toast, of course!Like all of the rest of the RXBAR recipes, this nut butter is a satisfying mini-meal or snack, from first to last squeeze. If you're like me, you'll even peel open the packet and make sure not one bit is left behind on that wrapper.
RXBAR was conceived by two friends who wanted a better protein bar option. Here's what they say about why it all began, "RXBAR was the first real food fruit and nut protein bar on the scene. Friends since grade school Peter and Jared were inspired by the lack of a REAL FOOD protein bar. All of their favorite snack bars either lacked protein or were chock full of artificial preservatives and ingredients. They headed into the kitchen, got cooking, and RXBAR was born.
We believe that food should be simple and delicious without compromising nutrition. We believe that food should be consumed as nature intended. We set out to create a whole food protein bar we felt good about eating and that made us feel great after we ate it. And we’re sticking to it."

Here are some of the amazing ingredients in RXBAR Nut Butters:
Dates are the main source of sweetness in these bars, and a natural preservative and source of awesome chewiness. Dates are vitamin and mineral-rich — they’re particularly high in iron and vitamin K.
Egg whites are one of the best sources of protein. Unlike more conventional sources, egg white protein is immediately absorbed into the body due to the naturally high biological availability. In addition to the high-quality protein content, egg whites are jam-packed with minerals and amino acids essential to keeping your body healthy.
Almonds are naturally delicious and extremely nourishing. Healthy fats, fiber, antioxidants, calcium, zinc, selenium, copper, magnesium, manganese, tryptophan and vitamin E are just a handful of the key nutrients that make almonds so nutritious. Almonds are so nutritious — their list of benefits reads like a patent medicine bottle. They’re full of health-giving fats, like oleic acid and linoleic acid, powerful antioxidants that can protect against many forms of cancer (oleic acid can protect women against breast cancer specifically), and can also significantly lower the amount of LDL in your blood, and reduce your risk for heart disease. A wonderful natural sweetness and impressive variety of nutrients makes almonds one of nature’s most perfect foods.
