Happy Almond Butter Day!

Blogger of the Day: Melissa at My Whole Food Life
Pubs: DIY Nut Milks, Nut Butters & More from Almonds to Walnuts (available Dec.2014!)

Melissa's favorite nutty butter is almond butter so you'll find an abundance of almond buttersmothered recipes on her long list of yumful dishes. She's a superdevoted mom with nourishing healthy foods at the top of her busylist so most of her menu is easy, familyfriendly and soulhappy. Her elegant almond butter takes just a few minutes but if you don't have the time, here are some of the more popular options on the market...
Artisana Organic Raw Almond Butter
Cadia Organic Smooth Roasted Almond Butter
MaraNatha Almond Butters
Once Again Organic Smooth Almond Butter

Nut butters, lean and mean...
• some stores let you grind your own nut butters, so you'll save a few cents
• buy raw nuts in bulk when they go on sale, often in the Fall/Holiday seasons
• mix in other less expensive nuts and seeds like sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, peanuts, etc
• add in sweets, spices and favorite flavorings, like Melissa did!  ;)

Do you grind your own almond butter? Do you mix in yumful stuff? What's your fave way to eat AB?  :)
