Question Almond butter

Hi all,

I really like almond butter (pricey as it is ), and am wondering if I can sub it for peanut butter in most recipes. Say like pb-cookies or a satay sauce?

Thanks for any thoughts guys

Sure you can! The flavor will not be the same .... but you already know that.

You probably can, but it will change the entire flavor of the recipe depending on the strength of the almond butter. I've never used almond flavors in recipes that had strong Asian flavors so I can't say as to how it would work in satay or peanut sauce. As for the cookies, I would know.

Thanks guys, I appreciate your comments

I went Googling and came up with these recipes that use almond butter:

http://search.yumyum.com/recipe.htm?ID=7903 (Almond butter cookies, they sound great)

http://www.veganchef.com/almnutbutter.htm (A homemade almond butter recipe)

http://www.rwood.com/Recipes/Homemade_Almond_Butter.htm (Another homemade recipe)

(Springtime veggie sushi with almond butter - the name alone is cool!)

almond butter is so good!
i figure you could use it instead of peanut butter if you would prefer the taste.
