19 Healthy Almond Butter Dessert Recipes –

Confession. I don’t cook very often with nut butter because I’m usually eating it directly off the spoon. However, I realize the value in creating some great healthy almond butter desserts so that I can keep my portions in check.

I mean, if I want to….but do I want to?? (checkout my nut butter addiction support group, you’ll understand)

Personally I’m not sure why you would want to dilute the straight off the spoon taste…but just in case you’re more of a cook here is a round up of healthy almond butter dessert recipes to satisfy every craving.

19 Almond Butter Dessert Recipes

For some reason, I find I enjoy almond butter and even sunflower butter and ok cashew butter a lot more than peanut butter these days. No good logic for it, but I won’t turn down a reason to test out some almond butter desserts.

Remember in most cases we want the NATURAL stuff.

No added sugars.

No added salts.

No added oils.

All of that can change the taste of a recipe, plus it’s extra unnecessary when adding it in with other ingredients.

Because we all know that fat is good for us! Keeps our heart healthy, our hair shiny, adds more plant based protein to our diet and fuels our long runs!

Don’t be afraid to add a few of these to your weekly yum rotation.

Let’s start with one of my favorite meals, breakfast. I feel like adding almond butter makes everything a little sweeter and suddenly breakfast can start to feel like dessert!
