3 Gourmet Almond Butter Snacks For Football Games

Almond Butter Finger Sandwiches

Finger sandwiches, or tea sandwiches as they’re sometimes called, are always a hit for small get-togethers, making them a perfect snack for watching football games. All you need is a few different types of bread, a few key ingredients, and you’ve got yourself a delightful, easy-to-eat, light snack! Here are some tasty combinations to try:

  • Almond butter, apple slices, and a honey drizzle
  • Almond butter, bananas, agave nectar, and cinnamon
  • Almond butter, granola, berries, and banana
  • Almond butter, cream cheese, and honey

Apple Slices and Almond Butter

Sometimes, keeping it simple is the best way to tackle your football party snacks, and apples and natural almond butter are always a winning combination. Simply slice up three different types of apples. Some of our favorite apples for this dish are Honeycrisp apples, pink lady apples, and granny smiths. Lay out your apples on a plate and in the center, place a dish of natural almond butter topped with sliced or crushed almonds and drizzled with honey. Sprinkle a pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg for a spicy fall twist. This is much healthier and tastier than greasy chips dipped in some kind of calorie-packed, processed cheese dip.

No-Bake Almond Butter Balls

These are one of the easiest snacks to make for a football game. Simply mix gourmet almond butter, honey, and rolled oats in a mixing bowl. Then, roll about 1-1 ½ tablespoons of the mix into a small ball and place on a plate lined with wax paper. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and then enjoy! You can even dip them in dark chocolate and then into crushed almonds for a little-added flavor and crunch.

Get Stocked Up On Almond Butter

The key ingredient for all of these football game snacks is almond butter, but you don’t want to use just any almond butter. You’ll want to use some that is thoughtfully made with only the most wholesome, all-natural ingredients. Shop Betsy’s Best Gourmet Nut Butters today to order the best natural almond butter. While you’re there, pick up jar or two of non-GMO peanut butter and toasted cashew butter.

Eating almonds (and natural almond butter) regularly gives you plenty of vitamins A, D, B2, and B6 which encourage hair growth to fend off dandruff and dry skin. Almond oil offers moisturizing benefits for skin and hair, combating dry skin, flakes, redness, and inflammation caused by a number of styling products and heated styling tools.
