How to Use Our Nut Butters

If you're a dessert lover, but want something you can feel good about, American Dream Nut Butters are a perfect substitution for your typical sweets. But how the heck do you use this stuff!? In this blog post, we'll explore various ways to use dessert-flavored nut butters that will leave your taste buds dancing with joy.

  • Spread It on Toast

One of the simplest and most satisfying ways to enjoy dessert-flavored nut butter is by spreading it on a piece of toast. Whether it's a warm slice of freshly baked bread or a crisp whole-grain cracker, the creamy and sweet nut butter will instantly elevate your snack. Top it with sliced bananas, strawberries, or a drizzle of honey for an extra dose of deliciousness.

  • Create a Decadent PB&J

Upgrade your classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich by swapping out regular peanut butter for a dessert-flavored nut butter. Think of combinations like Chocolate Hazelnut Butter with raspberry jam or Cookie Dough Peanut Butter with blackberry preserves. The sweet and nutty pairing will make your taste buds sing.

  • Mix into Oatmeal

Take your morning oatmeal to the next level by stirring a spoonful of dessert-flavored nut butter into the pot. Whether you prefer a classic oatmeal base or overnight oats, the creamy addition will make your breakfast feel like a treat. Consider flavors like cinnamon roll almond butter or apple pie pecan butter for a comforting start to your day.

  • Dip Your Fruit

If you're looking for a healthier dessert option, consider dipping your favorite fruits into dessert-flavored nut butter. Apple slices, banana chunks, and strawberries work perfectly. You can even drizzle the nut butter over a fruit salad for a delightful twist.

  • Bake into Cookies

Do you enjoy baking? Dessert-flavored nut butters can be an excellent addition to your cookie recipes. Simply substitute some or all of the traditional nut butter with the dessert-flavored variety. Imagine the delicious possibilities of cookies made with White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Butter or Peanut Butter Cup Nut Butter.

  • Swirl in Yogurt

Enhance your yogurt with a swirl of dessert-flavored nut butter. Whether it's Greek yogurt, almond milk yogurt, or any other yogurt of your choice, this combination makes for a delightful snack or dessert. Top it off with some granola or fresh berries for added texture and flavor.

  • Blend into Smoothies

For a dessert-like smoothie, blend dessert-flavored nut butter with your favorite fruits, a liquid of your choice (like almond milk or yogurt), and a handful of ice. The result? A creamy, sweet, and satisfying beverage that feels indulgent but is surprisingly nutritious.

  • Stuff Pancakes or Waffles

Elevate your pancake or waffle game by stuffing them with dessert-flavored nut butter. Simply spread a layer of the nut butter between two pancakes or inside a waffle pocket. The result is a warm, gooey, and delicious breakfast treat that's perfect for special occasions or weekend brunches.

  • I have been using ADNB to level up my meals while in prep for a bodybuilding show and now, in my off-season! My favorite way to use ADNB is to put it on an English Muffin with a little bit of sugar free jelly! Lately, I have had the opportunity to eat a yogurt before bed and you KNOW your girl is stirring in some of that Pumpkin Cheesecake Almond Butter in there! ADNB levels up my meals, satisfies my sweet-tooth and keeps me on track to have an amazing bodybuilding season!
