Here’s something insanely simple for Sandwich Tuesday.
I really miss peanut butter: its savoury, chunky awesomeness. Since not being able to have peanuts due to Lou Who’s intolerance, I’ve had to eat almond butter, which I’ve never liked all that much. It’s too much on the sweet side. I love almonds, but the butter just doesn’t appeal.
I get mine fresh-ground from the bulk section of Winco and I’ve taken to stirring a little salt in whenever I fill a new tub. The salt helps. Then I thought, “What if I added a little molasses and a little more salt?”
And ya know… this was just about ALMOST as good as peanut butter.
Here are the proportions I used:
1 T almond butter
1/4 tsp molasses
Pinch salt (if you use already-salted almond butter, you may want to omit adding extra salt. Your call.)
Mix almond butter, molasses, and salt thoroughly and spread on a slice of bread or half a bun. Top with sliced apples. Or really whatever you want. But I used sliced apples.
