Five More Ways To Eat Natural Almond Butter
Today, let’s explore a few more ways to eat natural almond butter in a whole variety of ways. And if you’re feeling hungry, head to your local grocer and pick up a jar of Betsy’s Best Almond Butter with Cinnamon, visit our online store, or shop us on Amazon.
Almond Butter Candy
For all you sweet tooths out there, almond butter candy is incredibly easy to make. Almond butter candy can be blended with coconut oil and a variety of additional ingredients to make it as decadent or as simple as your heart desires. Eat this delightful candy plain or dip it in melted dark chocolate and toasted coconut. Kids love coming up with creative candy toppings so get the whole family involved for this one. This is a perfect treat to have around when you need something sweet that is made from wholesome ingredients, rather than refined sugars and high fructose corn syrup.
Add to Pancake Mix
If you love a small stack of Saturday morning pancakes as much as I do, try adding healthy almond butter to the mix to enhance the flavor. Plus, almond butter will give your pancake batter a smooth texture that can help them cook on the griddle to perfection. Of course, you can always spread almond butter on your pancakes in place of maple syrup and top them with sliced strawberries, blueberries, and a sprinkle of sliced almonds. Drizzle on a tad of honey for an extra-sweet touch.
Ice Cream Topping
If you’re getting a little bored eating plain vanilla, chocolate, or strawberry ice cream, add a small spoonful of Betsy’s Best Almond Butter with Cinnamon to add a layer of flavor. Sprinkle toasted coconut or crushed walnuts to add some heart-healthy heartiness to your creamy dessert.
Or better yet, try your hand at making your very own almond butter ice cream. Go for plain-Jane cinnamon almond butter ice cream, banana almond butter ice cream, or be daring and add in dark chocolate chips, walnuts, and a caramel swirl. Be sure to check back for a future blog series focusing on delicious DIY almond butter ice cream recipes that are perfect for summer (and made with Betsy’s Best natural almond butter, of course!).
Whole-grain crackers and gluten-free crackers are a healthy snack option for children and adults, but dipping them in cream cheese or topping them with sliced cheese can get a little boring. Instead, add a dab of almond butter and top with an apple slice for a healthy, filling afternoon snack.
Okay, okay, I know this sounds a little strange. But think about it — dipping celery sticks in peanut butter is a classic snack favorite for children everywhere. Why not try it with almond butter? You can even make the traditional “Ants on a Log” using almond butter and raisins. Or live a little and try dried cranberries or fresh blueberries instead.
