This delicious butter can be spread on oatcakes, like nut butter, or can be used as a dip for celery or carrots. Either way it makes a healthy and delicious snack. The butter is a great source of omega 3 essential fatty acids, as well as protein, which will help to keep you going until your next meal. Enjoy!
