A few years ago I started to really re-evaluate how I was eating and what I was eating. I loved me some peanut butter. It’s probably my favorite condiment. But when I started eating better I found out that almond butter was actually supposed to be better for you.
So I started on my quest to find an almond butter that could compare to my favorite creamy peanut butter. Because I really did love my peanut butter.
Spoons and Knives are Not Necessary
I grew up loving peanut butter and I mean loved it! When I’d get home from school I would go straight for the peanut butter jar and dig in. It was always my go-to snack.
Spoons and knives be damned! I didn’t have time for that.
I would whip off that lid and my fingers were in that jar faster than Winnie the Pooh when he got his hands on a jar of honey. The best utensils I had, where my fingers. My mom wasn’t too happy with me when she found my finger grooves all inside the jar of peanut butter. Yeah, I know, that made it so everyone else in the house wouldn’t eat the peanut butter with my fingers marks all up in the jar.
But I was ok with that. A girl has to claim her peanut butter jar, right?!
My Quest for Creamy Almond Butter
Anyway, in my quest to find the perfect almond butter when I started to eat “smarter”, I was having a hard time finding the perfect kind. I mean most were good enough. However, I wanted something smooth like peanut butter. Almost every brand I tried had that weird gritty taste and looked like sandpaper.
After trying a few different brands I finally settled on one that the best of them all, but was very expensive.
The way I knew that this almond butter was going to be a winner, was my youngest son actually approved it!
Trust me I’ve had this kid try all the almond butter I ever brought home. He didn’t like anything and was dead set on only ever eating regular peanut butter.
Ants on a Log
Our first test with Lindsay Almond Butter was ants on a log. In our sample kit, we got 3 different flavors that Lindsay Almond Butter has: Classic Creamy, Classic Crunchy and Honey Cinnamon. For the ants on a log, we stuck with the Classic Creamy.
This is the reason almond butter should be one of the 7 deadly sins.
It was so deliciously fabulous!
Trust me it was very difficult to stop eating!
Brody said he loved how smooth and salty it was, like eating regular peanut butter, but you could taste the almonds, which in his opinion was better.
Using Obtaining Bliss’ own Almond Butter Cup Recipe we used our new favorite Lindsay Almond Butter Classic Creamy and also tried the Classic Crunchy in this recipe. Brody wasn’t sure about the crunchy kind, he didn’t think he was going to like it.
I love this recipe because it’s super simple and the almond butter cups come out amazing!
Once you have them all done, you just pop them in the freezer for about 10 minutes and they’re ready to go! Check out the first taste!
See, it actually tastes like a “peanut butter cup”.
Oh, and for the record, the Classic Crunchy Almond Buttercups were also a hit! In fact, those were our favorite!
I definitely suggest you try out this brand for yourself. And if you check out Lindsay’s Website they have coupons that you can get for $1 off!
