Friday Favorites: Almond Butter

10 12 2010

MP900423700Move over peanut butter. I need you to make some room on the shelf. I still love you, but, almond butter is just so much more…sophisticated? Understated? Supercalafragalisticexpialidocious?

Thank you, Trader Joe’s, for offering up a variety of affordable almond butter: raw unsalted, creamy unsalted, raw with sea salt, and creamy with sea salt, raw crunchy, crunchy, and the list really goes on. My personal favorite is creamy unsalted, but accidental purchases of all types in the past make me 100% certified to say that they are all delish.

Favorite almond butter uses:

  • A schmear on a slice of Manna Bread
  • Blended into a bowl of bulgur or steel cut oats, with dried blueberries and milk
  • On a banana
  • On a piece of this bread
  • Blended into a smoothie
  • Straight off a spoon, Mary Poppins style

Have you tried almond butter? What are your favorite uses?
