INGREDIENTS

2 sticks plus 3 tablespoons salted butter, at room temperature
2/3 cup light brown sugar (or coconut sugar)
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
3 medium-sized tangerines or blood oranges
1 cup almond flour
½ cup all-purpose flour (or GF all-purpose flour)
1 ½ teaspoons baking
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup granulated sugar
3 large eggs
3 tablespoons JUSTIN’S® Classic Almond Butter
⅓ cup plain Greek yogurt (or non-dairy yogurt)
2 teaspoons vanilla

DIRECTIONS

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9-inch round cast iron skillet.
  2. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt 3 tablespoons of butter. Add the brown sugar and lemon juice; stir until sugar melts, 2-3 minutes. Scrape mixture into bottom of prepared skillet.
  3. Zest one of the tangerines and set zest aside. Slice off the tops and bottoms of the oranges. Place on a clean, flat surface, and slice away the rind and pith, top to bottom, following the curve of the orange. Slice each orange into 1/4-inch-thick slices; removing any seeds. Arrange orange slices on top of brown sugar mixture in a single layer.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk together reserved orange zest, almond flour, flour, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl with an electric mixer, cream together remaining 2 sticks butter with granulated sugar. Beat in eggs, one at a time, then beat in almond butter, yogurt and vanilla. Gently fold in the dry mixture.
  5. Pour batter into skillet over orange slices. Bake 40 to 50 minutes, or until cake is golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes, then run a knife along pan’s edges to loosen it; invert onto a platter and cool completely before serving. Enjoy!

Great Summer Recipes
Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie in clear cups with white and gray striped straws on a white background

I would say something like “Enjoy the taste of childhood PB&J with this Peanut Butter & Jelly Smoothie,” but that would imply that adults don’t eat PB&J sandwiches. That is not true at all for this adult. If you love Peanut Butter & Jelly just as much as me, then you will like this smoothie.

Baked Cinnamon Almond Butter Churro Doughnuts with cinnamon sticks in the background on a white background

I’m a sucker for a great doughnut, but sometimes I want to eat a whole dozen of them. My doctor tells me that eating that much fried dough isn’t good for me, but I’ve found a loophole. My Baked Cinnamon Almond Butter “Churro” Doughnuts are baked not fried. You still probably shouldn’t eat a dozen of them by yourself though.

 

I topped my pumpkin ice cream with a Super Dark Chocolate Espresso Almond Butter Cup, and it blew my mind. What’s next? Pumpkin pies topped with Super Dark Chocolate Espresso Almond Butter Cups? Pumpkin Oatmeal? Pumpkin lattes? Hey now there’s an idea…

Peanut Butter Banana Pudding with whipped cream and peanut butter drizzle with cookies on a wooden top with white background

No, your mind is not playing tricks on you. You really are staring at a glass filled with layers of JUSTIN’S® Classic Peanut Butter, vanilla wafer cookies, bananas, and pudding, topped with coconut whipped cream. This recipe is so easy to make I can do it with my eyes closed. Except, I have to use a plate for every time I miss the glass. The good news is, it still takes me less than 10 minutes to make.
