Almond Butter – One of My Favorite New Passover Ingredients

On Passover, my family misses a few ingredients. No, it’s not pasta or pizza (well maybe pizza), but we love peanut butter and miss the creamy, nutty, salty sweet taste. Luckily, my kids have started to enjoy almond butter and we use it all year round. Almond butter is kosher for Passover and is one of my favorite healthy ingredients. Almond butter (tip: try to buy all natural or organic almond butter to limit the amount of added sugar) is filled with protein, has more iron than peanut butter, reduces your cholesterol and with just one tablespoon and is filed with vitamins. In addition to the great health benefits, almond butter is rich, creamy and keeps you feeling full. It’s a great ingredient to use in desserts, and snacks and in sauces. Here are some delicious and unique recipes using almond butter. Enjoy!
