We’ve been regularly enjoying whipping up nice big batches of homemade almond butter.  It’s made from one ingredient – freshly roasted almonds.  The taste and smell of super fresh almond butter is to die for!  It’s really much more delicious than the store bought stuff in jars. And bonus – much cheaper to make at home.  So, let’s celebrate this lovely ingredient with ten delicious ways to use Almond Butter.
