I've pretty much made the switch from peanut butter to almond butter. I initially started because it was on my trainer's diet and now I find I like it better than peanut butter! It's pretty economical if you pick it up at Costco where you can get a jug for like 10 cents.
Anyway, I'm a crunchy almond nut butter person and Costco just doesn't carry it.....so I make my own. I roast some whole almonds, cool 'em off, chop 'em up and throw it all back in the jar. Most of the time I can get it all back in the jar....but sometimes I add too many nuts....like in this picture. Oh well, instant snack.
