Chilier weekends can call for some serious baking good times. After going through the cupboard I realised that I have quite the inundated amount of Almond Butter available. Now we all know the simple measure of a spoon is super acceptable with this little bit of wonder. But was really keen on making a loaf and thought the extra nuttiness from this amazing spread would always be accepted.

I had friends coming over for dinner and I always find one of the best ways to make life easier with a casual dinner party is to make the dessert well ahead so that is one thing less you have to think about. Especially when you finish that lovely main course and your in quite a chatting mood and to get up and be away for 30 minutes would just kill the authentic vibe right? Yes definitely justified that one 😀

As always with these baking wonders it is wet plus dry… mix… pour… bake and slice. It keeps well for days or you can put in the freezer and have it lasting forever. Sunday morning coffee and Almond Butter Loaf doesn’t sound too bad at all.
