Am I just a freak? can I say that on the board?

I LOVE almonds. I can't stand almond butter. Am I just buying the wrong brand or am I some sort of freak-o? Jay, be nice.

I'd like to learn to like almond butter on my apples instead of peanut butter (mmmmm, peanut butter!) what's the best brand you've found?

Trader Joe's! But to be fair, that's the only kind I've ever tried.

Legal, smegal. I've been doing it on my own for years now with no side effects apart from a third nose.

Jenna, I'm like you. Almonds are good, almond butter isn't. Of course, I don't have many ideas on what to use it on.

Re: Am I just a freak? can I say that on the board?

When I decide to indulge and eat nuts, I generally make my ow nut butter. Read: nuts dont agree with me

Into processor:
1 c walnuts (raw)
1 c pecans (raw)
1/3 c ground flaxseeds
Whirl and voila.

Personally I like it on fruit, in a lettuce or greens wrap...Multitude of uses....

Sarena, please adopt me!

I'm similarly weird. I like guacamole but can't stand avocados.
Have you tried hazelnut butter? It might be a bit tastier. I always find nuts taste better toasted than raw (aside from my nemesis, brazil nuts...) so perhaps a brand featuring toasted almonds might be more palatable?

What's wrong with peanut butter? Great source of mono-unsaturated fat.
