Ah, almond butter. The perfect snack spoonful or ingredient. We love eating it to hold us over in between larger meals, or to slather on a banana for a quick breakfast when we’re on the go for a busy morning. We know that our Base Culture tribe loves almond butter as much as we do, so we’ve kept it fresh and fun with a total of four flavors - because, why get used to just one when you can have them all?
- Original. Our ‘OG’ flavor is the classic, beloved almond butter on its own - the nutty, creamy and earthy taste of almonds in a whipped butter spread, for that perfectly sticky and delectable spoonful.
Try it in: Almond Butter Balls.
An easy snack to whip up is an almond butter ball. Simply mix our original flavor with maple syrup and pecans, and ball them into bite size balls, distributing them evenly across a cooking pan. Pop them in the oven, and you’ll have perfectly round treats for later (good warm OR cold!). Kids love these!
- Cinnamon. Our favorite woody, red zinger flavor is here to spice up your almond butter palette.
Try it on: Apples! We love piling our cinnamon almond butter on crunchy Granny Smith apples for an afternoon snack for that timeless cinnamon apple flavor, or mixing apple chunks into a bowl of this good stuff. Add a cinnamon stick for garnish!
- Gingerbread. The holidays are coming up, friends, which means gingerbread season has arrived. Our gingerbread almond butter combines the spice of your favorite gingerbread cookie with nutty, wholesome goodness for savory holiday-filled bites.
Try it in: Gingerbread cookies! There’s a plethora of paleo gingerbread cookie recipes all over the web that are perfect for a holiday dessert tray (or, when you’re craving the holidays in the spring - we don’t judge!). When preparing the cookies on the cooking tray, smooth out the dough so it resembles a pancake, and take a spoonful of the gingerbread almond butter and place it in the middle of the cookie dough. You can then roll the cookie dough around the almond butter so the butter is retained inside. After cooking in the oven, the cookies will be perfectly smooth and chewy on the inside from the almond butter!
- Maple. That sweet and savory maple syrup classic taste isn’t just for pancakes. We add real maple syrup to our almond butter for those of you who have a sweet tooth.
Try it in: Maple Almond Butter Cups. A delicious and fun dessert: swing by your local grocery store to grab cupcake wrappers and paleo-friendly chocolate chips (such as the ‘Enjoy Life’ brand). Mix the maple almond butter with maple syrup (how perfect!) for that perfect stickiness, then scoop your new concoction into the cupcake wrappers. Melt your paleo chocolate chips, and drizzle on top. Leave your cups in the freezer overnight and voila!
We can’t wait to hear which almond butter flavor is your favorite - the possibilities for recipes are endless!
