INGREDIENTS

Cookies:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1  ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup chopped pecans
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • ¾ cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon Justin’s Maple Almond Butter
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • ⅔ cup pumpkin puree

 

Maple Almond Butter Glaze:

  • ¼ cup Justin’s Maple Almond Butter
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 3-4 tablespoons almond milk
  • ¼ cup chopped pecans

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, cloves, cinnamon and salt.
  3. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, cream butter and sugars together, occasionally scraping the sides of the bowl with a spatula until well combined. Add egg, almond butter, maple syrup and pumpkin puree. Mix on medium/high speed for 2 minutes. Add the dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix on low speed until just combined. Fold in pecans.
  4. Using a 2 tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop cookie dough 2 inches apart on a large cookie sheet.
  5. Bake for 13-15 minutes.
  6. While cookies cool, make the glaze. In a glass measuring cup, combine the almond butter and maple syrup. Microwave 20-30 seconds and stir. Whisk in the powdered sugar. Add the almond milk, one tablespoon at a time, as needed to create a drizzly glaze. Once cookies have cooled, drizzle with glaze and sprinkle chopped pecans.

Nothing says “Party” like a great dip. When it comes to this dip, I like to keep the guest list for the party down to just one. Sweet Potato-Almond Hummus combines sweet potatoes, chickpeas, and JUSTIN’S® Classic Almond Butter to create a hummus like you have never tried. Did I mention it is vegan? Happy snacking.

Is there anything more magical than warm muffins fresh from the oven? Mmm, I can almost smell them now.

My almond butter poppy seed muffins are sure to make you float in the air like those old-timey cartoons. Okay, maybe not. But, they are super good.

 

Cinnamon Almond Swirl Banana Bread on a white plate with silver cutlery on a white background

It’s a fact that there is no such thing as bad banana bread. All banana bread is a gift. However, there is such a thing as “the world’s most perfect and delicious banana bread,” and it’s my recipe for Cinnamon Almond Swirl Banana Bread. It’s official. I have a certificate and everything. Granted, I made the certificate myself…but I’m pretty sure that anybody who tastes this banana bread will agree with me.

Spicy Peanut Sauce used to dip dumplings being held with brown wooden chopsticks on a white background

I can’t get enough of this Spicy Peanut Sauce. Fresh ginger, garlic, and of course, JUSTIN’S® Honey Peanut Butter. It’s so good I could drink it right from the bowl. Of course, I’d never do that. Maybe.
