When I was a kid, one of my favorite snacks was fruit. But, then I started making nut butter and it all turned around. Yep, you better believe it. I started making crispy rice treats and snazzing them up with all kinds of goodies: dark chocolate, sea salt, and of course, any of your favorite JUSTIN’S® Nut Butters. Feel like a kid again with my nut butter rice crispy treats with dark chocolate & sea salt.

Great Summer Recipes
justins almond butter ssamjang

At this point, I have to ask, “what CAN’T almond butter do?” This Korean-inspired Almond Butter Ssamjang (which translates to “sauce for wraps”) is a sweet, spicy, and perfectly salty sauce that is phenomenal in a lettuce wrap or just as a dip for fresh veggies.

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.

Smoky, savory, delicious flavor doesn’t need to take all day. Sometimes it’s as simple as combining high-quality ingredients and just enjoying the result. Almond Butter Romesco is a perfect example of that kind of dish. All you need to do is blend roasted red peppers, sun-dried tomatoes, almond butter, and other delicious ingredients together and enjoy with toasts, chicken, or vegetables.
