It all freezes wonderfully. Donuts, bread, and brownies freeze well.

Gina when you make hamburger buns do you use the muffin top pan or shape them by hand?

No...not that I'm aware of. I think maybe you are thinking of ground flax instead of almond meal. I eat a fair amount of almond meal and it doesn't stall me, but YMMV.

I have had this recipe in my favorites folder for quite some time. I made it today and here are my thoughts. I used Bob's almond meal and left out the sweetener and also the salt. OOPS! They were a little bland without the salt, but I don't miss the sweet taste at all.

I cooked mine in a muffin top pan and it was the perfect amount of batter to make 12 buns with none left over. Awesome!

I might have cooked them a bit too long; they are kind of dry, but the texture is great. Thumbs up!! Thanks, Ginaaaaa!!

Thanks so much for posting this recipe. I really liked it. I'm sorry these images are so big.

I used a whoopie pie pan and it made 12 buns. I've had them with just butter, chicken salad (pictured), and then the last one - chocolate and peanut butter. Ooh-la-la. I uses 20g peanut butter and 10g sf chocolate syrup. What a treat!

Going to experiment more with this, but so far I'm really liking it.

Thanks Rosethorns.

I got my almond butter at Costco. I can't remember how much it is there, but it was a nice sized jar.

Yes . How much did you get? I make my own from almond flour. You can do it in a blender using almond flour.

I bought mine at Costco also instead of the new Sprouts that just opened in the town next door. The one at Costco I think was $7 or $8-something(?), But it's a 26 oz. jar, much larger than the one at Sprouts.

yes, normal. It is like gold very pricy!!! I try to buy it on sale, but that is very rare. The almond flour I buy by Bob's is just like that--expensive.

I made this bread again and today and like this batch SO much bettter than the first time I made it. The first time I made it with almond butter, today I made it with almond flour in the food processor with the oil to turn it into almond butter. It's really good!!! I'm so glad I tried it again. I'll never use almond butter in it again.

I'm so proud that somebody tried it using the flour and making your own almond butter.

I made it once w/ the costco almond butter and it was awful. I feel the stuff at costco is too tight. When I make my own it is looser.


Did you love it sjl330 ?

Interesting. I used about 1/2 and 1/2... maybe that's why I was so pleased with mine. I ran out of the almond butter, and used almonds and olive oil to make more.

Yes, Rose, I loved it! I just had a grilled egg and cheese sammie with it! Yum! I had used Costco almond butter too and it sure didn't ring my bell at all. Plus, it wasn't pretty. This recipe is pretty! Lol.

Has anybody tried adding yeast to this just for the yeasty taste? And smell? DH suggested that.

I just made a loaf with something called Earth Balance ....coconut and peanut spread. 80% peanuts and extra virgin coconut oil. Although i typically dont put sweetners in these breads this one may benefit from it .....although i can eat it. Has a coconutty taste. You could put some unsweetned flaked coconut in the batter and some nuts and dried fruit.

I also made a loaf with almond flour and used almond oil. The almond oil, although extremely expensive, gave the bread a macaroon taste...like almond paste was used. It was delicious. Im going to put some sweetner in that brea next time.

I like having a slice as a snack or as my breakfast with a cup of coffee. Its perfect! I hope it doesnt stall me.

I've never made it like you did but sounds great.The almond butter bread will not stall.At least I don't think so.

Do you think i could use regular vegetable oil to moisten the almond meal? To give it a neutral taste and not be as expensive as the almond oil i used? I dont want to use olive oil if im going to make it sweet. Or can you just use water to moisten it?

Just use vegetable oil. I can't because it's soybean(allergic). Please don't use water , not for this application.

You are making almond butter so oil is the best way. Any oil you like the taste of.

Hope that helps.

Did you love it sjl330 ?

Could it be because there's no salt and only almonds as an ingredient or just a texture thing? Whenever I use it I Have to put some salt in it or it's just too bland and I'm not a big salt user normally.

I add salt to mine. The Costco brand is pretty densely packed. Try using 1/2 and 1/2 and see if you like that. I did.

Terry
Costcos is very dense, I would loosen it up with a little oil. Mine didn't rise much the first time using costco almond butter. I will always make my own almond butter.

I'm not a salt eater either but this you have to add salt.

I use my muffin top pan. Because that is 2 pieces of bread . Works for me. For this bread I like to use Trader Joes almond flour because my brain thinks I'm eating dark bread.But I 've used blanched almond flour like Gina did. I'm sure it's me.

I made my own almond flour for years and loved it. Now I buy Honeyville .
It's so good!!!
