Okay… so this post is going to be about one of my obsessions for the past month or so. Almond Butter!
I used to eat almond butter toast every day a year or two back, but I recently bought a new bottle after listening to Trin’s podcast Wellness Cafe. Which, by the way, is my favorite podcast. I listen to her when I go on walks, and on the way to my workouts. Anyways, she talks about her newfound obsession with almond butter, and I was like omg I need to try it again.
So I did. I got a bottle from Costco and made myself an Almond Butter Banana Toast, and you can find the recipe here! But then I heard her talk about smoothie bowls and I was like wait a dang second. I’ve never heard of smoothie bowls before this, especially for breakfast. What I made is more similar to a parfait, however, I still call it an Almond Butter Bowl.
So I got together some simple ingredients, and decided to make something brand new, an almond butter bowl!
Here’s the standard recipe for an almond butter bowl:
- 1 cup to 1.5 cups of yogurt(I use organic plain Verka)
- A spoonful of Almond Butter. (there’s no specific brand I used)
- Any fruit
- Chia Seeds(Use how much you want)
- Honey(Again, use as much as you want)
(If you would like, you can also add granola to it. Or crushed nuts, such as almonds, walnuts, cashews, etc. Maybe even raisins, if you want to add something sweet to it.)
This recipe is pretty easy to make, and there are a lot of options for customization. This way you never get bored. It fills you up pretty well too!
- I first scooped the yogurt into a bowl.
- Cut up the fruit, I either use half a banana or apples.
- I then put a scoop of almond butter on the side
- Pour honey all over the contents in the bowl
- And top it off with like 3 spoons of chia seeds.
Word of Advice: If you’re going to take a picture to post, do so before the chia seeds, or else it will look like a bunch of ants are on your breakfast(learned from experience 😭).
This is great for breakfast if it’s warm out, and it only takes at most 10-15 mins to make in the morning. Almond Butter and Honey taste soooo good. I haven’t tried it with peanut butter, but let me know how it goes! I personally prefer apples instead of bananas, because they are more crunchy and the tartness goes with the sweet yogurt and honey.
Not only is this recipe really delicious, but it’s also packed with protein and healthy fat. If you like oats, you can always substitute them in instead of yogurt. If you want to eat this as a pre-workout snack, you completely can. Even a post-workout one, or after/between classes or work. You can even store it in the fridge and take it and go.
I mentioned above that you can use oats instead of yogurt, you can also adjust this recipe for overnight oats. I’m sure chia pudding would also taste good with some almond butter mixed into it. That’s just how versatile it is!
