Cinnamon Almond Butter Dip
(no ratings)

Half the calories of Peanut Butter and oh so tasty!! You can dip apples in it, put it in yogurt, put it on oatmeal, put it on stir fry or whatever your heart desires. I got the recipe from Oh She Glows and she adapted it from Heather Eats Almond Butter. I used my homemade Cinnamon Almond Butter for this and it's pure heaven I tell ya!! By the way the picture doesn't do it justice!! It is hella good!!

Use this on falafel or a salad. Add fresh or dried herbs and it becomes goddess dressing. The toasted sesame oil imparts a stronger sesame flavor to the dressing.

Vegetable-Packed Guacamole
Very Good 4.5/5
