12 Ways to Eat and Enjoy Almond Butter

Updated on July 3, 2018

Almond butter has seen its popularity rise as a delicious and healthy alternative to peanut butter. Its wonderful taste, numerous health benefits and versatility has placed it on the mainstream food map as a choice with many possibilities.

A simple jar of (either dry roasted or raw almonds) yields a smooth, velvety taste, a rich source of vitamin E, plant protein, and heart-healthy monounsaturated fat, and presents an option for people who suffer from peanut or other nut allergies. It is more readily available than before and can easily be purchased at most supermarkets or online. Better yet, with a solid food processor and fresh almonds, it can even be made in the comfort of your own home.

Almond butter can be a featured ingredient in some recipes as well as as a great complement in others. Below, check out a list of suggestions for enjoying it in any variety of sweet and savory possibilities.

Try It:

1. On toast or other starches (bagels, muffins, crumpets, english muffins, pancakes, waffles). For example, enjoy your morning toast with a smear of it.

2. On fresh fruit. For example, a banana topped with almond butter

3. On dried fruit, like dried apples or apricots dipped into it.

4. On fresh vegetables, like with celery sticks and raisins.

5. In hot cereal. For example, try oatmeal, with a dollop of almond butter and a milk or milk substitute.

6. In yogurt, and maybe mixed with a sweetener like honey.

7. In shakes and smoothies. For example: take a spoonful of it, mix with milk or a milk alternative, add frozen fruits of your choice, and ice, and then blend together in a blender. Optional: add protein powder, yogurt, silken tofu, ripe avocado, greens, and/or added sweeteners.

8. Added to savory dishes, condiments, sauces. It helps thickens and adds nutty body and flavor.

9. On frozen desserts. For example, mix spoonful of it with warm chocolate syrup and drizzle over scoops of vanilla ice cream

10. On chocolate— you can simply dip chocolate pieces into it and enjoy the combination.

11. Incorporated into sweet treats or baked goods, like these brown rice crispies by Sprouted Kitchen.

12. Of course, as a replacement for peanut butter. Like a classic PB&J with almond butter instead.

        Hi Pamela- yes, the nice thing is that almond butter is no longer limited to health foods stores as you mentioned. Almond butter is great in sandwiches. Hope you find some other fun and tasty way of eating it too :).

        I love almond butter and have it with honey in a sandwich sometimes. You can find it at Walmart these days for less than health food stores.

        I'll have to try some of these other ways of eating almond butter.

        Thanks for stopping by rkhyclak. I never thought much of almonds until I tried almond butter. I've been a fan ever since and haven't missed peanut butter too much.

        I love almonds, but haven't given almond butter a try. I feel like it's going to be a must since I despise peanut butter! Rated up and useful :)
