  • Almond Butter ideas

    As a recovering peanut butter addict, I have switched to almond butter, and I really like it. However, since I am not eating any bread, what are some good ways to enjoy eating an almond butter treat?

    mix it with some coconut oil and unsweetened cocoa for a treat.

    spoon it into celery boats.

    you can also cook it with it, like you would a peanut sauce on some steamed veggies or stir-fry. thin it with some hot water, add some hot sauce and add into your dish.

    nut butters are a total trigger for me. no can keep in house.
    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

      Cut up an apple and dip in it.

      Second the stir-fry idea. Although I like to dump some coconut aminos in there to give it a little bit of peanut-teriyaki kind of taste.

        Spread it on really good unsweetened baking chocolate. It's a poor substitute for a Reese's peanut butter cup, but I like it.

          Dip in a spoon, pull out the spoon loaded with almond butter, put the spoon in your mouth, and lick it all off.

              Put it on a hamburger patty... trust me. It sounds weird but I think it's delicious.

                I lightly saute banana in some butter. Remove from heat. In a separate bowl I mix some extra virgin coconut oil unsweetened cocoa and almond butter. Drizzle over banana and enjoy. You could add sweetener to the sauce, but don't really need it.

                  Slice strawberries in half and put a little dollop in the middle and re-join in a nut butter fruit sandwich

                    I usually do this with walnut or pecan butter, but think it'd work with almond butter: Fill the inside of raspberries with little dollops and devour! It's sooooo good.

                      Blend a cup of almond butter with a cup of coconut milk and a jar of roasted red peppers for an awesome cream sauce.

                        Thanks everyone! It seems like fruit or celery are the best bets, with the occasional use as a sauce. But don't worry, Ill try the hamburger patty idea some time!

                          I do that all the time! It was something else I was looking for!

                            The good old ants on a log... Honestly, I just like it on its own, dipping a fork into, while seeping a long relaxing cup of tea. My kiddo also liked a banana cut in half and glued back together with nut butter & then cut into bite-sized pieces.

                              Oh, oh, oh! You MUST: Core the apple, and cut into slices horizontally, to make 'o's. Then spread/drizzle the almond butter on. Believe me, it tastes much better this way. Worth the effort and the extra utensils.
                              Also, look up Winencandy's chocolate hearts, and put almond butter in the center. Like a Reeses cup, only much, much better. And good for you (almost!).
