B&B's sweet, nutty Wild Mesquite Powder is made from the inner fruit of wild mesquite pods, and its flavor reminds us of hot chocolate and cinnamon toast. Most mesquite flour is made of seeds and pulp, so our powder has a more intense and complex flavor. Mesquite trees regenerate ecosystems and provide sustainable livelihoods for rural communities, and their fruit has a rich, comforting flavor. Swap for cocoa powder in baked goods, or use to spice up pancakes, oatmeal and hot drinks.
Gluten-free, vegan and naturally sweet with no added sugars, mesquite powder is delicious simply stirred into hot milk and sipped like a hot cocoa. We also love adding it to the dough or batter of any baked good that could use a little cinnamon-y sweetness. Try adding it to a mix of Smoked Pimentón Paprika and Silk Chili to make awesome spiced nuts, stir it into a warming braise or sprinkle over the top of a sweet potato casserole.
