The Almond Butter Recipes Your Life's Been Missing

Julie R. Thomson

Put down the bread, it’s time to get a little more creative with your jar of almond butter. We know that almond butter toast makes for a great, quick breakfast (for when you get tired of peanut butter), but there’s a whole lot more you can be making with this spread.

Almond butter, which dishes up a host of healthy fats and vitamin E, does wonders in a pinch for dinner, and is a godsend when it comes to baking. Oh, and it’s wonderful in smoothies, too.

We’ve got some recipes to get you started. Check them out.
