Dastony and RawMio Nut Butter Review
I don’t praise, sing or make a video about a product if it doesn’t ROCK MY WORLD. I recently was approached by the lovely ANNA from Rawfoodrecipes.com site asking to feature me as one of their raw food chefs. Wow! How humbling and gracious! I accepted! This site has a wonderful and vast array of raw food recipes and raw food chefs. Need new recipes or looking for “just that right” raw cashew cheese recipe? I am sure you’ll find it there – several to choose from at that.
Anna also offered to send me some products to try. I was under no obligation to give a positive review and was not paid for this review. This is ME – sincerely, honestly – giving you my take on these products. I didn’t have to do a video, but I WANTED TO. These babies need to be seen, heard about and given a go. They ROCKED MY WORLD! And Scott’s too!

I introduce to you two LOVELY lines:
Dastony uses an ancient method known as stone-grinding in the production of its products. This “old world” approach is revolutionary in terms of preserving nutrients and flavor. I highly commend them for this!! This natural preservation is accomplished by maintaining a consistently low temperature throughout the entire process. Another unmatched result of stone-grinding is a silky smooth texture and mouth feel that is truly beyond words. I love making my own nut butters and mine (or other brands) doesn’t EVEN compare to Dastony.
I tried the Stone Ground 100% Organic Raw Almond Butter, Cashew butter and Coconut butter. From their website: “Only the finest selection of raw and organic ingredients are used in our Dastony Stone-Ground Nut and Seed Butters. Every batch is handcrafted and meticulously cared for during a process which takes 24-48 hours.” That might seem like overkill and too involved – but I say NO! Take as much time as possible – because the end result is incredible and worth it. These butters maintain all of their nutritional integrity and THAT is something VERY IMPORTANT to me and I appreciate Dastony’s dedication, integrity and ideals.
Nut butters are GREAT for creating quick and easy milks, stuffing medjool dates with and topping with your favorite toppings (mine are coconut flakes, cacao nibs and chlorella tablets – not all at once – by why not, if you can fit it all on), spread on gluten-free breads, creating icings (cashew butter is great for this one), and so much more!
Rawmio Hazelnut Crunch is a blend of organic coconut flakes, fresh hazelnuts, coconut sugar, and cacao nibs, slowly stone-ground with a touch of real vanilla bean and Himalayan salt. Crushed hazelnuts & more cacao nibs are folded in for a wickedly AWESOME delicious, crunchy milk chocolate spread I know you will devour. Scott and I sure do! When I first opened the jar, tasted it, I freaking MELTED! It was a culinary orgasm. I know that is too much information, but I challenge you to not feel the same when you taste this stuff.
I took a bite of this chocolate heaven and for a split second thought “Do I have to share this with Scott?” Then, my heart took over and said “YES!” I found Scott in the library room and said “I hope you know how much I LOVE you!” (with a smile) and put a spoonful of this hazelnut butter in his mouth. His eyes popped and said “Holy S–t! (I said the same thing!) What is that!” I tell you, it will invoke an explosion in your mouth and speak to the food Gods. “Thank you!”
We are enjoying this butter very sparingly because we don’t want it to end. It will, of course, and I will purchase more. THIS is something to treat ourselves with. Some people go out to eat, purchase fancy items, etc., I put my special dollars into quality food – knowing that it will nourish and heal my body and taste amazing. Simplicity baby!
I paired the Rawmio Hazelnut Crunch with this lovely Pumpkin chocolate bread – I added orange extract to the original recipe and WOW! I always loved orange/pumpkin and chocolate together. It was delicious.
Watch my video review and see how good the Rawmio Hazelnut Crunch is at the end. Enjoy!
Have a great weekend!May the GREENS be with You! and Be Inspired! Kibby
