I have half of a large tub of almond butter that needs using up. I found a nice looking recipe for cookies which I'll try but wondering if anyone has any savoury ideas? Could I use it in a satay or would the taste be too subtle?

TIA smile

Almond butter and banana toasty
Almond butter and cheddar toasty
Almond butter and a spoon
<drools>

Satay will work well

You just need a spoon... that's it just a spoon smile

You can use it instead of tahini when making hummus

It's good in porridge

Make pesto with it?

Thanks for all the suggestions but almond & cheddar toasty confused Just no!

Will def try it in hummus (have used peanut butter before & it was lovely) and satay.

I can't imagine it in pesto, would it get very sticky?

I'm a big fan of just eating it with a spoon or on slices of Apple but not making much inroad into my enormous tub which went out of date 3 months ago

May I ask where you got a large tub of almond butter? The little jars never seem to last very long, and I'm guessing it's better value for money in a larger quantity?

It's been a while but think I got it on amazon. My local health food shop also does big tubs.

I always use it instead of tahini, as DH gets eczema from sesame seeds.

Homous has been mentioned, and you can also use it in baba ganoush.

Ah, thanks.

I don't think pesto would use large quantities, but you can use it instead of something like pine nuts.

E.g. www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/pastawithalmondpesto_88934 or
www.satyayoga.co.uk/raw-basil-almond-butter-pesto/

Or there's a this tasty sounding almond butter dressing from Post Punk Kitchen www.theppk.com/2011/06/shiitake-banh-mi-salad/

You're not spreading it thickly enough 😂

Could you use it in a cheesecake? Banana, almond with caramel (salted or otherwise?)

What about using it in a tagine?

Adds almond butter to shopping list

Place marking. Bought a jar and find it far too glady on crackers. Can't eat real bread and I don't like GF bread so said jar is languishing in the cupboard blush

Made a delicious veg satay this evening, very fattening satisfying.

Hummus on the menu for lunch tomorrow and will have this noodle salad later this week:

Have made it with peanut butter before and it's yum

Thanks for all the suggestions, will look over them again next week and try a couple more

Soup - mushroom, ginger and almond butter. Really rich and yummy.

Breakfast smoothie:
Soak dates in pre-brewed coffee, blend with frozen banana and almond butter

Spread thickly on a banana and eat

I have some recipes for snack protein balls

DD hates peanut butter but will tolerate an almond butter and jam sandwich
