Peace to everyone on board,
i recently got some raw organic almond butter from a Fresh Food Market (i forget the brand name), but i was interested in knowing what kinds of things i can do with it. it was the first time i ever tasted it, and WOW. i was amazed at how good it was.. i'm trying to avoid eating bread, or any wheat for that matter.. so that would rule out the normal almond butter on some toasted bread..
any other suggestions.????

Try it with banana or apple or pear or a combo of any two or all of those fruits...YUMMY! I also sometimes like to sprinkle the previously mentioned mixture with raisins and/or shredded coconut.
If you have a dehydrator, you can make sweet breads/crackers and spread on that. It's also good on celery sticks...my daughter and I were chowing down on that late last night!
Some people like to mix it with honey (or other sweetner such as date paste/syrup - just dates soaked and then blended with water to desired consistency) and then put on fruit.
Just a few ideas, but I'm sure you'll get others!

You didn't ask so may well regard this as useless info, but I've found that I can handle wheat okay with the occasional slice of Ezekiel 4:9 sprouted grains bread spread with almond butter. Yummy! And yet another reason why being 100% raw is probably a dream for me...< sigh >

Universal, what equipment do you have? There are tons of good almond butter recipes but I don't want to temp you with food you can't prepare. Examples: food processor/ dehydrator/ blender/ chopper/ juicer/ ice cream maker...

I'm a full-time student right now, so i'm basically starting from the bottom and working my way up. But for now, i have a blender and a juicer.
oooohh.. and Rawkinlocs, thanks a lot for those ideas.. i gotta try that later on tonight. matter fact, the only thing i actually did do with it was use it as a dip for some celery sticks. mind detect mind.!!

Sorry I didn't write before! Ideas include unfried rice, banana nut ice cream, no bake cookies, and thai marinaded portabellas.
un-fried rice recipe and ideas:
banana nut ice cream:
Mix two big spoonfuls of almond butter, squirt of honey or agave nectar, sprinkle of cacao nibs [optional]. Make modified melissa's ice cream take two frozen bananas cut up, spoonful of honety, pinch of salt, dash of vanilla and blend. If you need to use a little water to blend that's okay. Hand mix the two, if you like don't blend but leave an almond butter swirl. Re-freeze if necessary to desired thickness. Not too long or it may become too solid to eat.
2 spoonfuls of almond butter
generous squirt of honey or agave
1/4c nuts or chopped apple [optional]
generous sprinkle cacao nibs [optional]
1c rolled oats
Mix the wet ingredients first, then dry, oats last. Should be difficult to stir and moist at end, if not add more oats. Every time I make these with the intention of dehydrating them, and every time I eat them raw. :)
Thai marinade: Spoonful almond butter, sprinkle shredded coconut, dash chili powder, dash of honey, squeeze of lime, hint of celtic sea salt, small garlic clove minced, 2T Braggs OR water
Marinate portabella cap w/ stem removed for at least 1/2 hour. Serve over greens or cut into narrow slices and serve in sushi [thanks to someone else for the sushi suggestion] OR double the marinade and serve with un-fried rice, substituting half of marinade for ufr sauce.
