I use almonds and almond products quite frequently in my recipes. My favorites are almond butter, almond flour, and almond milk.

Almonds are high in monounsaturated fat and fiber, and contain significant levels of vitamin E, magnesium, and potassium. They are heart-healthy and low on the glycemic index. Besides that, they are delicious.

The following are examples of the variety of ways in which I use almonds. I use whole almonds in my Almond Milk recipe, while almond butter is a key component of Paleo Breakfast Bread. Of course, almond flour is the base of many of my cookie and cake recipes. I hope you enjoy exploring all the ways almonds can benefit your health and help to change the way you cook and eat.
