Almonds don’t just make a great snack, they also are an ideal ingredient in the kitchen. Read on for 5 recipes that use all sorts of almond products from almonds to almond milk and beyond.
1. Homemade Granola
Start your day off (or give yourself a mid-day pick-me-up) with healthy granola. You’ll love that you can customize it to your kiddo’s taste, but we love granola that’s laden with almonds. Get the recipe here.
2. Berry Cobbler Overnight Oats
Overnights oats are the latest craze in easy, vegan, and whole food recipes. This berry cobbler overnight oats recipe, courtesy of Sophia DeSantis of Veggies Don’t Bite, uses hemp seeds to pack in the protein. Hemp seeds (she uses the Hemp Hearts brand) adds great texture and nutrition. To really catch her kids’ attention, Sophia used berries and almond milk to give this dessert a sweet spin.

3. 20-Minute Pesto Chicken
While almonds don’t take center stage in this recipe, without them, the flavor would be incomplete. Plus, the whole dish takes about 20 minutes to pull together. What’s not to love? Get the recipe here.
4. Almond Joy Ice Cream
Sure it’s winter, but we don’t know anyone who would pass up a delicious bowl of ice cream. This recipe from Fried Dandelions is vegan and uses almond extract for the rich almond taste. Get the recipe here.
