Almond Butter Review and Giveaway

July 13, 2009

Last week, I was fortunate enough to receive some goodies from the fine folks at Briden Wilson Farm, a family owned and operated almond farm in the north-central valley of California.

Loved the handwritten note - how's that for customer service!

Loved the handwritten note - how's that for customer service?

Upon delivery, I immediately opened the jar of creamy almond butter, inhaling the aroma of fresh roasted almonds.  The best (& only) way to truly judge any almond butter is with a spoon straight from the jar.

Watch out Maranatha!

Watch out Maranatha!

Afterwards, there was more taste testing…had to make sure it was good. The things I do for my HEABers. 🙂

Green oat topper - yep, it's good.

Green oat topper - yep, this spoonful was yummy.

Hmm, not 100% sure yet.  Better keep trying…

Stirred in my blueberry smoothie...um, I think it's good.  Better do one more test.

Stirred in my blueberry smoothie...OK, so this combo worked.

Now, for the ultimate test…

Oat bran in the jar.

Oat bran in the jar.

My review?  This almond butter is excellent in every way. According to Tom, owner of Briden Wilson Farm, the ingredients are nothing but dry roasted premium Carmel almonds, not the leftover pieces like most large companies use. My only complaint is that the jar was not big enough to hold all my oat bran. 🙂

As far as the raw almonds go, perfectly crunchy and slightly sweet, everything a raw almond should be.

Now, I’ll be honest, I was a bit hesitant to try the Wasabi Roasted Almonds as they contained both sugar and artificial ingredients. But, because I wanted to include them in this review, I decided on a small handful:

Just a few, right?

Just a few, right?

Well, then all hell broke loose, and I was eating these babies on everything.  They are the perfect combo of sweet and savory, and not too hot. HIGHLY ADDICTIVE!

These veggies were just begging for a little Wasabi lovin.

Really y'all, I could not stop eating these.

Above was my favorite wasabi almond dish.  Using Chocolate Covered Katie’s recipe, I made a veggie stir-fry and topped it with lots and lots of wasabi love.

Thanks again to Tom and Rebecca at Briden Wilson Farm for allowing me to review your wonderful products…but please, don’t send anymore more Wasabi almonds! 😉 Now, for the best part – Tom has graciously agreed to send one lucky HEABer their very own jar of Briden Wilson Farm’s creamy roasted almond butter.  All you have to do is click here to visit the company’s website, and then list in the comments below either one of their recipes you’d like to try or a health-related almond fact.  You have until midnight, tomorrow night (Tuesday, July 14 – Happy Bastille Day!), and I will announce the random winner on Wednesday.  Trust me, you want to win this one!

All gone. :(

All gone. 😦

    Heather! You are the CUTEST!! Your oatbran jars are just so much fun.

    I’m so excited that you tried the Vinegar Stir Fry! And I love your addition of the almonds– putting a Heather spin on the dish :).

    So many great recipes but i’d just love to try it plain…sitting at the window shelf with a spoon and jar, looking at the neighboring houses and enjoying the delicious magic jar. Yum!

    I’ve never had almond milk, but I bet trying my own (instead of a store-bought brand) would be an awesome way to taste it for the first time! Their recipe has vanilla and honey in it, and sounds goooood!!

    Very cool giveaway! 😉

  61. July 13, 2009 9:04 am

    Alright Heather, as if you didn’t have me excited enough with the coconut kefir, I am now downright giddy about this AB! It looks divine (and I love the different shape of the jar as seen on their website). Anyways, after navigating around their website I saw that they had a recipe for homemade almond milk that is made with honey which sounded way too good to be true. Now I know it is not a recipe that involves the use of AB but then again, who needs a recipe to use AB in when you got a spoon!

    great giveaway for almond lovers!!!
    I read through their recipes and all seem worth trying but the one that I’ll definitely try it is this almond milk recipe
    Almond Milk
    Ingredients:
    1 cup natural raw almonds
    3 cups water
    1 tsp. honey
    1/8 tsp. vanilla extract

    Directions: Add water, almonds, honey and vanilla to blender. Blend at low speed for one minute; then process at high speed for three minutes. Strain through cheesecloth or other fine filter. Refrigerate. If you prefer thicker milk, use slightly less water, or simmer on low heat to desired consistency prior to refrigeration.

    Almond milk is a great substitute in milk shakes, protein shakes, and even lattes.

    🙂 have a nice day!

    Almonds in the diet simultaneously improve plasma alpha-tocopherol concentrations and reduce plasma lipids.
    Source: School of Kinesiology and Nutritional Science, California State University, Los Angeles, CA, USA. more here

    The objective of this study was to assess the dose-response effect of almond intake on plasma and red blood cell tocopherol concentrations in healthy adults enrolled in a randomized, crossover feeding trial. Participants were 16 healthy men and women, aged 41+/-13 years. After a 2-week run-in period, participants were fed three diets for 4 weeks each: a control diet, a low-almond diet, and a high-almond diet, in which almonds contributed 0%, 10%, and 20% of total energy, respectively. Changes in blood tocopherol levels were assayed by high pressure liquid chromatography. Incorporating almonds into the diet helped meet the revised Recommended Dietary Allowance of 15 mg/day alpha-tocopherol and increased lipid-adjusted plasma and red blood cell alpha-tocopherol concentrations. A significant dose-response effect was observed between percent energy in the diet from almonds and plasma ratio of alpha-tocopherol to total cholesterol.

    OOH! I want to try the Magic Cookie Bars! My mom used to make Magic Cookie Bars for me when I was a kid! Aw, sweet memories. 🙂

    And does the name “Briden Wilson Farm” conjure images of an almond farm run by the lead singer of the Beach Boys for anyone else, or just me? Oh wait, that was Brian Wilson… my bad. 😉

  109. July 13, 2009 11:11 am

    Your almond butter makes me want to try the stuff all the more! It’s only the price tag that makes me hesitate. However, next time I’m at TJ’s, I’m picking up a jar! My mom wants to try it too!

    As much as I love almonds, I’ve actually never had almond milk before, so I’d like to try that recipe. The cranberry-almond salad sounds really great though!

    what torture it must have been testing that almond butter so many times! even though i just bought a brand new jar of my favorite almond butter, i’d love to give this one a taste!

    heath-related almond fact: you receive twice the antioxidant punch from eating almonds WITH their skin on than you would if you were to eat just skin or the meat alone. the flavonoids in the skin pair up with the vitamin E in the meat. so don’t eat skinned almonds! (but who would want to?!)

    Almonds used as snacks in the diets of hyperlipidemic subjects significantly reduce coronary heart disease risk factors, probably in part because of the nonfat (protein and fiber) and monounsaturated fatty acid components of the nut.

    Magic Cookie Bars
    1/2 cup butter
    1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
    1 can (14 oz) Sweetened Condensed Milk
    1 Package semi-sweet chocolate chips
    1 1/3 cups flaked coconut
    1 cup chopped almonds

    Preheat oven to 350° F

    In a 13 X 9 baking pan, melt the butter in the oven. Sprinkle crumbs over the butter and bat down making a crust. Pour the condensed milk evenly over the crumbs. Top with remaining ingredients; press down firmly and bake for 25 – 30 minutes or until lightly browned.

    Let cool, cut into bars and enjoy! Can be stored in a covered air tight container at room temperature for up to two weeks.

    Hey Heather! I love your blog!

    I would love to try the Oatmeal Bars! I am a fellow Oat-Bran and Almond Butter addict- two of my very favorite substances in the whole world. I have them every single day…often more than once.

    I’m going to make your “groatgurt” tomorrow!

  221. July 13, 2009 10:27 pm

    OO I love wasabi flavored nuts!

    And the almond butter looks heavenly! I’d LOVE to try and make the oatmeal bars!

    i really want to try the East Indian Rice Palou! i’ve got all the ingredients in my pantry i think. sounds delish.

  223. July 13, 2009 10:38 pm

    Now, I usually cannot handle ANYTHING remotely spicy, but for whatever reason I freaking adore the Trader Joe’s wasabi nut trail mix whatever its called stuff. I assume it doesnt have artificial ingredients, so give it a shot. But also highhhhly addictive!!!

  224. July 13, 2009 10:41 pm

    Holy comments!! I’m a HEABer fo life 😀

    The cinnamon honey ones sound awesome! I would love some almonds to boost my monounsaturated fat and improve my plasma cholesterol and lipoproteins, haha ya know the usual.

    I’d love to try the Toffee Bars recipe (see below). I’m new to ‘other’ nut butters. I just tried almond butter for the first time yesterday — very impressed. I like how it’s thinner than peanut butter. Much better for stirring into cereal and yogurt.

    Michele

    Toffee Bars
    1 cup butter
    1 cup brown sugar
    2 cups flour
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 tsp vanilla
    1 egg yolk
    1 large Hershey bar
    1/2 cup chopped almonds

    Preheat oven to 350. Mix butter, brown sugar, flour, salt, vanilla and egg yolk in mixing bowl. Press into 11 x 17 cookie sheet pan or jelly roll pan (put a little flour on your fingers if it’s too sticky). Bake for 15 minutes at 350. Put Hershey bar on top (or spread chocolate chips) and cover with foil a few minutes until melted. Spread like frosting. Sprinkle chopped almonds on top.
