There are roughly 100 calories in a one tablespoon serving of almond butter. Whole Foods (which sells a good and cheap house brand of Almond Butter) defines a serving as two tablespoons, which contain 190 calories.

Almond Butter is considered "high in fat" and something to be avoided when defined by people like Weight Watchers. It is low in fiber, not too much protein.
