Almond recipes

Almonds are truly one of the most versatile of nuts! This super nutritious nut isn’t just for topping salads. Alex and I use almonds all the time: in nut butter, homemade crackers, and quiche crusts, and then sweet treats like brownies and ice cream. Almonds are packed with plant-based protein, so they make everything a little more filling! You’ll find we use nuts often in the recipes here on A Couple Cooks.

Since we love everything almonds, we’ve rounded up our favorite almond recipes to share! Most of the recipes use whole almonds, but a few use almond flour. While you can make almond flour at home, we generally purchase it at the store since it’s hard to get the finely ground texture. From almond butter to Jamoca Almond Fudge ice cream, we hope you love these recipes as much as we do!

And now: our top almond recipes!
