Confession. I don’t cook very often with any nut butter because I’m usually eating it directly off the spoon! However, I realize the value in creating some great healthy treats so that I can keep my portions in check.
I mean, if I want to do that kind of thing. (checkout my nut butter addiction support group, you’ll understand)
Personally I’m not sure why you would want to dilute the straight off the spoon taste…but just in case you are more of a cook here is a round up of healthy almond butter dessert recipes to satisfy every craving.
Is it Breakfast?
Let’s start with one of my favorite meals, breakfast. I feel like adding almond butter makes everything a little sweeter and suddenly breakfast can start to feel like dessert!
