  • I’m obsessed with the recipes – I don’t think there is a better ingredient than American Dream Nut Butters for all things sweet!

  • One of my favorites to make with ADNB! Such a versatile recipe too, as you can switch up the nut butter flavors! I also use a gluten free flour blend and it works just fine!

  • Wow this looks amazing! I never would have thought to use the pot of gold in this recipe but I’m definitely making this Sunday and enjoying with a hot cup of coffee. My husband loves crumb cake.

  • Can I use a gluten-free all purpose flour instead of regular AP Flour? And brand recommendation?
