Product Description

Created in Berkeley from almonds grown by a California farming family of five generations.

We began making almond butter over 25 years ago. Over the years, we have developed a proprietary process: we make the almond butter slowly, over several days. We slice the almonds and never grind them, which exposes the nut to the least heat possible to keep the flavors and properties of the raw nut intact. We make it frequently, in small batches, so it’s fresh and alive.

We have been buying almonds from California family farmers since 1979. Almonds are a premier source of Vitamin E. A study from Harvard found that people who ate nuts frequently were less likely to die from heart disease and cancer.

We invite you to open a jar and spread our almond butter on a slice of apple. Experience its texture, savor its aroma and taste its whole-bodied flavor.

    This almond butter is like no other. Absolutely nothing compares. I would go to the ends of the earth for this almond butter. All the other brands do not compare. I’ll never buy anything else.

    Perfection in a jar!
    This is by far the highest quality almond butter in the market- it’s as real as it gets. No artificial anything. ONE ingredient: Certified Organic California Almonds. No salt, oil, sugar, additives, NOTHING. It tastes clean and REAL- HIGH QUALITY. I’ve been having it as is- straight out of the jar, grab a spoon and enjoy! (warning: hard to put spoon down). I think it would be great to pair with fruit, in smoothies, sandwiches, or mixed with organic dark chocolate. It’s a great product for the health conscious, simple taste lover. Great product by a GREAT company.

    I was delighted to find Organic Alive Almond Butter on the nut butter shelf of my local Whole Foods. Smiled as I read that it was made from organically raised almonds, period. No roasting, no additives of any kind. Pricey but certainly worth a try.

    As an improvisational comedy teacher/director, I had to chuckle at some of the prose on your label: “over 21 Nobel Prize winners have been taught here”, imagining a scene in which a few select Nobel Prize winners as Berkeley students would be working together hand-slicing those lovingly grown nuts.

    Even better than the fun reading material was my first taste of your product. WOW! Quality speaks for itself, and this almond butter is in a class of its own – bursting with almondy goodness and flavor. So much better than the raw almonds available in San Diego food stores, that it’s one of the few processed food products I actually prefer over the original food.
    Kudos to you, and wishes for a long and successful career making such delicious food.
    All the best,

    I contacted Living Tree Community… because I have seen so many wonderful products that they have and heard that they are truly wonderful…Yesterday when I got home I got a package. When I opened the package I saw that I had gotten 1 jar of raw almond butter, one jar of raw cashew butter and a jar of Tahini. I freaked!!! I opened up the jar of raw cashew butter and I wont lie….I dipped my finger right in…WOW. I couldn’t believe this. Now I will say this, I have tried cashew butter from another company and I didn’t like it…It didn’t taste at all like cashews. When I tasted this one though it was like getting a hand full of cashews and chewing them right up. You know what I like most about this butter??? There was only one ingredient. JUST ONE. CASHEWS. No oil, nothing. I smiled and kept eating it. Then I had to say to myself “Heather, you have almond butter and these cals will add up fast!”

    Thank you so much for your service. Never had I dreamed that I would find such energetically alive food, and never would I have believed that so many wonderful offerings would be in one place. I would feed the world with your food if I could and thank you for trying:). For now I am ecstatic and beyond pleased to be able to give this glimpse of peace and truth to all we can. Thank you for providing me the opportunity I needed to give so wholly and with such passion. Thank you!

    Dear Living Tree Community Foods,
    I recently recieved a jar of your Almond Butter. It reminded me of the butter I could find many years ago. I have been turned off to Almond Butter the last few years because it didn’t taste right. I couldn’t put my finger on it, but I knew something was different. I bought every brand at the health food stores and it didn’t matter, they were all off.
    The store people didn’t know what I was talking about when I told them the butter didn’t taste right. I am so happy to have found your product.

    Thank you,

    I Am a new customer. I have just tried your Almond Butter and must say it is the best I have ever tasted. I have been buying almond butter for many years, but I have to say yours is SOOO fresh and full of real almond flavor and it tastes alive! I am looking forward to trying other products I ordered.
    Thank you,

    This is Lina from Puerto Rico again! Both my daughter Daphne and I reaaaally love your almond butter. So much that when we finally finish the last teaspoon (I was trying to avoid the unavoidable) I asked my husband, (who is staying for awhile in California) to please look up your product. Unfortunately, he did not find it but sent me a “natural” almond butter from a supermarket… When I received it, oh my! … natural????, it had oil, sugar cane, etc. I tried to give it to Daphne in her usual smoothie and…….NO! She wouldn’t dare touch her glass. She emphatically told me there was something wrong and that she absolutely wants YOUR almond butter. I completely agree with her so, here is my order.

    I just wanted to tell you that I love the spirit of your company as well as your products I had the great pleasure to taste so far. We are not used to almond butter in Luxembourg but I didn’t need any time to get used to it…I loved it immediately. I’m sure that it’s not only the products but the love that has flown in them through the people doing their daily work in respect and love for mother nature and all her children. I shed some tears when I read that you sent a gift package to one of your customers who wasn’t financially able to buy the products she wanted. It makes my heart sing when I hear about things like that. Thank you from all my heart and never give up this way of being.
    Love,

    Gerda

    I have never seen an online store so dedicated to communicating with customers in a friendly, warm way! Your emails are sweeter than some I receive from acquaintances – no kidding! Knowing the deep caring, love, and humanity that goes into each food somehow makes me feel even better about eating them. I can feel the vitality in them. And with the smiling face on the labels, I always feel cheerier and happier. I told my husband the other day that I cannot imagine going back to faceless jars of nut butters or honeys from other places. Living Tree is the best! Thank you also for the almonds included with my order – what a sweet and thoughtful touch!

    After placing my first order 10 days ago, and eating your food, I’m ecstatic that I found you. I’ve been vegan for 10 years, and your products are simply the best I’ve had so far. Thanks for putting so much love in your food. I can taste it!!

    Wow!! Just wanted to let you know how much I love your almond butter and almonds. I never knew almonds could taste so delicious. I’ve never tasted anything else like it. When I tried your almonds I got quite emotional like I was going to cry. I know that sounds weird but I felt so honored to experience such aliveness from your products. Can’t wait to try your olive oil and olives.
    Thank you so much for what you do.

    Your wonderful products tempted me to one purchase. Then another. Now I cannot bear the thought of a day without at least a teaspoon of your Alive Olive Oil and a tablespoon of your Alive Almond Butter! I think the Alive Almond Butter greatly assisted my recovery from four and half straight hours of snow shoveling. Now I’m ordering other products. I need a higher paying job to support my growing Living Tree Community Foods habit!
    Please keep providing the wonderful foods and educational services you already provide.

    I am entirely “great” full for your products. From the Organic Black Sesame Pesto to the Organic Raw Almond Butter. Even before these amazing foods reach my mouth, I feel the vibration of their goodness. I would particularly like to comment on the Pesto as every time I have some, whether spread on a chard leaf or celery stick, my body, mind and soul immediately feel a sense of inner peace, harmony and genuine, genuine care of all that I nurture myself with… a true testament to the love and care that go into each and every jar of your gracious gifts.
    Thank you for what you do for our planet.

  18. Monica Mallet

    I’ve been searching for over a year for some almond butter that is free of peanuts and I am so happy to have found your product… I am allergic to peanuts and was on the verge of purchasing my own almond butter machine because of the traces of peanuts found in most all almond butters. I can’t say thank you enough, you have made my month and your product is well worth the cost!
    Best Regards,

    I just received my order. I just want to say Wow! I’ve been getting cashew butter and almond butter for a long time from another company and I’ve never tasted anything as good as what arrived in the mail. Thank you so much. There’s a world of difference.

    Good morning,
    Several days ago I received all the items I purchased from your community. I would just like to tell you that your cashew butter and almond butter are the best nut butters in the world. I don’t want to sound as if I am over exaggerating, but by far they are the best I have ever tasted. Please keep up the great work. I will definitely return as a customer in the future. It has such a delicate taste, absolutely wonderful. I will even try the almond milk recipe you have on the glass.
    P.S. Your cashews, pistachios and almonds are great as well.
    Thank you again for your delivery and sound packaging.
    Sincerely,

    Patrick Breuer

    I just wanted to write a love letter to say how much we LOVE your Organic Raw Almond Butter!!!! I have eaten tons of different almond and nut butters and even made some “fresh” but this tastes like something completely different! This tastes like almonds and MAGIC!
    I am on my second jar and am so glad I found it at my local health food store in Morro Bay, Sunshine Foods. I am telling everyone about it, including my homeopath practitioner. I give out taste tests and may give them as gifts for the holidaze.
    Thank you for making such a wonderful food and I hope, hope, hope that the almond pasteurization order will be cancelled.
    Thank you!

    I just HAD to write and give you a PRAISE report. I’ve had extreme difficulty in getting cholesterol down because I’m hypothyroid which elevates cholesterol and I do not believe in statin drugs. Yesterday my doctor informed me that my cholesterol had dropped 100 points — YES — you read correctly — one hundred points!! Needless to say – the doctor was blown away!
    Your amazing organic raw almond nut butter accomplished this for me. PRAISE G-D!
    What a delicious way to achieve these results!

    Right now my children, boys of 7 and 9 years old, are chatting in the living room, eating apple slices with your almond butter. I offered to halve the apples, so they could put the almond butter in the middle, but they refused. Their reason: Slices can hold much more almond butter! They are laughing and certainly not missing chips, candy or the like from the days before rawdom. Thank you for making such wonderful foods.

    This was my third order, and everything so far has been amazing. Such sweet, perfect almonds, delicious pecans, the coconut dream is DELICIOUS, the wild rice, the tahini… It’s all great, and I am so glad that you are out there. I live in New York, and as you can imagine, my lifestyle is full of pollution and stress. I love to imagine that out there somewhere is land that has not been ruined by the greed of man, but loved, nurtured, and respected, from which such wonderful food grows. Thank you for the raisins — you have put raisins in all my orders so far, which are delicious and I’ve been giving them to friends.

    All the best,

  26. Paula Johnson

    Well, now you’ve spoiled me! I will never, never, ever buy tahina or almond butter at the store ever again. Period.
    I can’t wait to try your other products. Thank you for making delicious, healthy, fresh products! I won’t be able to get my orders fast enough.

    Paula Johnson

  27. Nicole Graff

    I just wanted to say that I recently made my first purchase from you, and it won’t be my last! For one thing, the free raisins for being a nursing mother was really cool! And those raisins! They were the best I’ve ever had, bar none. Every other organic raisin I’ve had was “hard as a rock”, to quote my 3 year old. These were just beyond words. And I always thought I didn’t especially like raisins! One question I had is should I refrigerate these? I just put them in the cupboard, but I don’t want them to spoil before we can eat them all.
    Next, the almond butter! Oh my goodness. I had purchased organic almond butter once before from a health food store and didn’t care for it enough to justify the high price again. When I saw your site I thought I’d give it one more chance. I’m so glad I did. I’ll never buy almond butter from anywhere else again. I just made some “ants on a log” with the almond butter and raisins for a simple snack, and it tasted like it never had before, thanks to your products.
    I wish I was more local to you, but I’ll be buying from you in spite of the distance.
    Thanks so much!

    Living Tree Alive Organic Almond Butter is my stable diet. I use it in my protein smoothies, or with fruit, as a dessert. There are no preservatives; it tastes fresh, clean and alive! Braving the elements daily, I feel the energy from the Almond Butter keeps me going, and even helps keep me warm!

    I train for about 4 to 6 hours a day. Rowing is classed as a power endurance sport, so you need the strength of a sprinter, but the endurance of a marathon runner. You need to touch a little of everything, and keeping my nerves fresh to react to the intense technical aspects also means I need to be on top of what I eat. I’m training hard everyday because I have a dream to get to the London Olympic Games in 2012 representing the USA. And I know with the right support, like I’m getting from Living Tree, I’m able to go for gold!

    Thank you Jesse and all the family of the Living Tree for caring about us!

    “I came to live in Seattle, USA from Pretoria, RSA in 2003 after completing my BA degree in Information Design at the University of Pretoria. Rowing found me for the first time in Seattle as something to fill a few hours in the day and get required credits for my aupair program. A few years later I started working with Carlos Dinares. He taught me how to really row, and then trained me to pursue excellence. A journey I’m still far from finish, but this pursuit started taking effects not only in sports performance, but in nutritional performance as well. I started following the Paleo Diet and not long after, I started seeking out different food choices that supported sustainable growing practices and cared enough to do something about it. The Living Tree Community’s whole approach to the environment made my soul better. Buying their nuts, dried fruits and butters made me know I’m doing something right.”

    Hello Living Tree Community!
    We received our order today and did a family tasting session. Delicious! Thank you for the Heart n’Sol Carob Halva. The Halvah has many flavor treasures inside.
    The almond butter is really amazing. It tastes like almonds. And the pecan butter tastes like pecans. Incredible! Both are so creamy. I really appreciate the effort that you all put into these products. Our family will be healthier, because of it.
    Tonight we are going to make some raw Almond butter ice cream. Here’s the recipe:
    1 tray springwater ice
    1 big scoop almond butter
    1 pinch vanilla
    1 spoonful carob powder
    1 spoonful honey
    *We are going to try some of the Lucuma and mesquite in it tonight too.
    Have a beautiful weekend,

    Peggy

    Dear Living Tree Community,
    First, I would like to thank you on your great customer service; my package of goodies arrived fast and everything was in great condition. I just finished relishing a spoonful of your heavenly almond butter. Until today, my favorite almond butters had been by others, but I can confidently say that your product is far superior.
    Upon opening the jar, I was immediately enveloped with a smell of fresh almonds. The best way to describe this product is, well, perfection– in terms of texture, it is both creamy and smooth, with just amount of crunch, but the taste is what really impressed me. It taste just like almonds, absolutely pure. I made a delicious smoothie with the almond butter–raw almond milk, 1 peach, vanilla, a dash of cinnamon, 2 soaked medjool dates, 1 tbs. Living Tree almond butter, 1 tbs coconut oil. It was absoultely divine mostly due to the great flavor and texture that the butter provided. I called it “I am Nourished”. Thank you again, very much for such an amazing, wholesome, and nutritously alive product. You’ve certainly earned a loyal customer.
    Respectfully,

    Jennifer

    Hello,
    Your parcel came very promptly, I received it on Wednesday, February 9, 2011.
    Sorry I did not write at once, I was sick in bed.
    My husband was delighted with the almond butter for his birthday!
    We love your good work!
    Many thanks,

    I wanted to thank you for your wonderful organic and sustainable products. I have gone through three jars of the alive almond butter within three weeks. I never thought I would spend $20 on almond butter but the fresh taste is beyond any almond butter I have tried in the past. I purchased the black sesame tahini the other day and it is magnificent as well. I look forward to receiving my latest purchase of coconut oil and yes, another jar of almond butter! Thank you for all the loving kindness infused in each of your products!!

    Just got my recent order (a couple of days ago) and I did it big this time — 10 items. Had already fallen for your almond butter, and so had to try your new pecan butter, as well as sample your cashew butter — and, of course, a larger quantity of the almond butter. I have not eaten any of the mulberries yet or the pine nuts, but the blackberry vinegar on my salads is great (can’t overdo it because I’ll run out too quickly and can’t spend all the money just on that!). Just wanted to say thanks for including the complimentary trail mix, as well as the raw black sesame tahini (which I will try today). Wishing all a great day — and thanks again.

  35. Mark Braunstein

    And I LOVE your Alive almond butter. I have tried all of the “raw” varieties on the market, and although the cost of yours is much higher, it truly is worth it because it has a vibrant quality, for lack of a better term. I don’t know how to say it other than: I feel better when I eat your almond butter. It almost seems like it is feeding my soul.
    Angellah

    Having been blessed with your truly raw almond butter and tahini, I can never return to the other brands of so-called raw nut and seed butters, as yours tastes exactly like almonds and exactly like sesame seeds, whereas theirs tastes like neither. Thank you!

The Origins of Our Almonds

90% of the world’s almonds are grown in California’s Central Valley. It is bounded to the east by the towering Sierras and to the west by the coastal mountain range. Its rich, alluvial soil is wondrously fertile. This great plain is a sea of white in February when the almonds blossom. The orchards are irrigated by water from melting snow high in the Sierras. It is brought to them by a marvelous system of canals. California almonds are sweeter and their flavor is richer and more complex. Imported almond cannot compare. California almonds are simply the best.

We have decided to offer almonds exclusively from California in making our almond butter. The almonds we are offering have been processed in compliance with the USDA rule. They are exposed to steam for 8 seconds at 210- 215°F, then moved through a dehydrating tunnel to remove the moisture resulting from the steam for 44 seconds, in a circulating air temperature of 391- 395°F. During this process the almonds are 221-220°F on their surface and 110- 115°F at their core.

Nutrition

Almonds are a premier source of vitamin E. 23 almonds contains 35% of the Daily Value for vitamin E. Since the National Academy of Sciences increased the recommended daily allowance (RDA) for this important antioxidant, many Americans aren’t getting enough of the essential nutrient. Vitamin E is an important antioxidant that is essential to overall well-being. Almonds are one of the best food sources of alpha tocopherol vitamin E, which the National Academies of Sciences has identified as the only type of vitamin E that makes itself available to cells in the circulatory system. According to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, almonds rank strongly among food containing alpha-tocopherol vitamin E. 1 ounce of almonds contains 7.4 miligrams or 35 percent of the Daily Value of this nutrient.

A study from Harvard found that people who ate nuts frequently were less likely to die from heart disease and cancer.

Recipe: Creamy Chocolate Almond Butter Cups

by Master Live Food Chef Barbara Kessler of Rawfully Tempting


Ingredients
1 cup almond butter (option – mix two nut butters or a nut and seed butter)
1/2 cup cacao or carob powder
1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp cacao paste, grated (divided) (or use 2T grated cacao nibs + 1/4c cacao powder)
1 tsp coconut oil, melted
1 cup cacao butter, grated
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/3 cup maple syrup, to taste
1/4 cup dried shredded coconut and or chopped nuts or sunflower seeds ( may be pulsed in grinder to create finer blend) for coating

Directions
To melt, place grated cacao butter and cacao paste/nibs in a medium metal bowl on top of a smaller bowl filled with hot water. Or melt in dehydrator at 110 degrees.

Set aside 2 Tbsp of grated cacao paste/nibs for decorating later.

Tip: Grate cacao paste and cacao powder using a cheese grater, or micro plane..

In large bowl, set over small bowl of hot water, mix together, nut butter and cacao powder, using a fork. Stir in extract and sweeteners.

Add maple syrup and mix well. Stir in melted ingredients. Work quickly, as it starts to set.

I used mini paper baking cups set in peanut butter cup chocolate molds, (or other candy molds). Neater to eat later, unless you like licking fingers.

Fill the paper cups or directly into molds. The mixture is thick, so you will have to work it with the spoon to fill the mold quickly. Dust with remaining grated cacao paste or nibs, and/or finely shredded coconut. (Chopped nuts are nice too). Place freezer for 30 minutes to set and serve. Store in either refrigerator or freezer.

This is like freezer fudge so it melts in your mouth…and your hands…Enjoy!
