Back in the day I used to be addicted to almond butter bars of various sorts in my local grocery store. I’m not sure what all that company adds into their product to make it stay together so well, but nowadays I hardly trust prepackaged items. I prefer to get the raw ingredients myself and make things myself. That way I know exactly what is going into my body. I’m discovering that it’s not always as perfect as the store bought version, but sometimes its damn close and that’s good enough for me. Especially when I have the security of knowing it’s definitely gluten free, dairy free and totally safe for me to eat. My most recent experiment was homemade almond butter, which came out so smooth and lovely that it encouraged me to recreate almond butter bars as well.
One of my new favorites to replace an old favorite! This recipe is a new take on the split pea and ham classic. It requires a semi-decent food processor, a medium to large sauce pan or pot and a knife of course!
It is AIP, Paleo and Hashimoto’s diet friendly so it shouldn’t trigger any flares.
Let me know what you think if you try it!
