Almond joy: More than 150 recipes to drive you nutty in a new cookbook

See also

We have always been nuts.
Over nuts.
Pecans, macademia, peanuts, Brazilian, walnuts.
And of course, alomd joy.
Brooke McLay has written the delicious Almonds Every Which Way:More than 150 Healthy & Delicious Almond Milk, Almond Flour, and Almond Butter Recipes (Perseus Books, $18.99) that is driving us . . . well, nuts.
McLay guides readers through every meal of the day (and then some) with more than 150 almond flour-, almond milk-, and almond butter-based recipes. Her recipes range from breakfast (everything from Vegan Almond Butter Pancakes to Thai-Style Breakfast Burritos) to dinner (including Almond Milk Alfredo, Fried Chickpea Salad and Primal Power Meatballs). Brooke also puts a twist on familiar classics, such as AB & J Quick Bread Bites or Stealthy Healthy Mac and Cheese. Whether it’s curling up with some Almond White Marshmallow Hot Cocoa, spreading a little Enlightened Artichoke Dip on your Almond Crunch Crackers, or impressing friends with a box of Almond Cookie Dough Truffles, this book offers helpful tips, alternative methods, and ingredient substitutions to help almond-based cooking fit into any lifestyle.
Complete with helpful codes that show how each recipe fits into diet parameters (including signs for dairy-free, gluten-free, grain-free, paleo, vegan and vegetarian), and a section devoted making the basics—almond milk, flour and butter—from scratch, Almonds Every Which Way helps both beginner and experienced home cooks incorporate this “wonder nut” into their diets.
