Almond Butter

Am I the only one who doesn't like almond butter? I keep trying, I have tried making my own... what is wrong with me?

I will say I do not like anything except RAW plain almonds. Roasted, salted, flavored - grosses me out. So that could be why - almond butter is roasted almonds right?

I wish I liked it. Am I the only one? It seems like everyone LOVES it.

I don't like alomonds, so I never tried almond butter. I do like baked goods made with almond flour and almond extract.

Hmm, yes I love almond extract. And I like baked good with almond flour too!

Maybe b/c almond flour is usually raw. I tried an almond butter bread once and didn't like it but am wanting to try it again, maybe it was a fluke!

I love almonds, but almond butter is just OK, IMO. I find it not nearly as flavorful as peanut butter, unfortunately.

Its OK to me but I am not crazy about it. Why keep trying it if you don't like it though?
I don't like peanut butter. I do love hazelnut butter and pistachio butter though. There are far too many yummy things you can have eating this way to eat things you don't like. If you don't like almond butter, I don't think not liking the almond butter bread was a fluke.

I hate any "real" nut butter that is made with only ground nuts... esp peanut butter. It tastes chalky and oily at the same time to me. Unfortunately, I like the processed kind with oil and sugar added (think Jif or Skippy)... therefore I basically only rarely buy any.

I did find that it works as a tahini substitute when making hummus or baba ganoush.

Almond butter seems a little bland to me so I added some salt and it was much better. I'm generally not a big salt user either.

I like it, but it's OK if you don't. Everyone has different tastes

Don't worry about it if you don't like it...no sense wasting time on food you don't like! I personally LOVE LOVE LOVE it, but hate plain almonds.....go figure.
