When I was a kid, my mom would always buy relatively healthy food for us… Breakfast food items would include things like whole wheat bread, whole grain cereal, granola, apple sauce, peanut butter and all natural fruit jams. Sometimes, though, she would let me and my brothers choose a little indulgent treat for ourselves. Me? I would invariably choose the same thing: Map-O-Spread. Boy, oh boy did I love that stuff! If you’re not familiar, it’s a super crazy sweet, artificially flavored maple spread, made with sugar, sugar, and more sugar. Don’t think I need to tell you that there’s absolutely nothing healthy about it. 

Recently, I got some kind of a flashback that this thing existed and sort of started craving it. Of course, there was no way I was gonna give in to that! Besides, to be honest, I don’t even know if it’s still available at the store… Instead, I came up with this lovely, and much healthier, Cashew Maple Spread recipe. While it’s not as sweet as the original — which is only a good thing, trust me! — this spread has the same creamy, sticky and velvety texture. 

And the best part is, it only requires 2 ingredients and 5 minutes of your time to come together… Faster than it would take to go to the store! 

I get the feeling I’ll be indulging often…
