WIAW: Nut Butter

Happy WIAW!

I’m just gonna go ahead and put this out there: I’m kinda obsessed with this Cinnamon Raisin Nut Butter I made the other day.

I’ve probably gone through 1/2 the jar in about 2 days. Please don’t judge me…it’s been a stressful week!

I ate it on some mini bagels with blackberry jam for lunch:

I ate it on my black bean burger for dinner:

I dipped my roasted sweet potatoes in it for a snack:

And for dessert, I made some of these No Bake Chocolate PB Oatmeal Balls with it…err, I guess these would be WB balls…still delicious though. I used brown rice syrup instead of honey this time.

What’s your favorite way to eat nut butter?

  1. I go with the classic spoon method…while leaning against my kitchen counter! Classy, I know!
    Alicia at AliGirl Cooks recently posted..Garden Fresh Tomato Salad

  2. With a spoon for sure and then i let the puppy lick the spoon when i’m done (it ensure i don’t keep going back for more because i can seriously eat a jar in one sitting!)
    Everything looks great except for perhaps the nut butter on the burger, i just might take your word for it on that one πŸ˜‰

  3. With a spoon from the jar.

    Sorry. It’s the truth. [Perhaps one day I’ll get more creative?]

  4. Nut butter on oats!!!! I’m getting a food processor Friday…I sense a need for more mason jars in my life!

  5. I go through nut butter (peanut butter) at a rate of a jar (or more) a week! My favorite it peanut butter (still), but I’ve been wanting to try Justin’s White Chocolate PB – I think it looks delicious!

  6. I always think straight from the jar is best, until about a half a jar through and my stomach starts to hate me. So lately I’ve been mixing in plain greek yogurt! Simple but great combination

  7. Nut butter is something to seriously be obsessed with…. I know I am! I love it heated through in a big bowl of oats. Yum :)

  8. I also love to put nut butter on just about everything. Oats, yogurt, apples, bread, in sauces to make savory dishes. …. :-)

    I love the idea of roasted sweet potatoes + nut butter, going to have to try that one.

  10. Ahhh roasted sweet potatoes! I’m so happy it’s almost Fall so that I can eat them non-stop :)

  11. Okay, definitely couldn’t make that butter, I’d never stop eating it πŸ˜€ I love nut butters with oatmeal as my first and foremost choice, but I’ll really take any excuse for it. I do believe din tonight is going to be leftover cornbread with peanut butter–and I see nothing wrong with that…

  12. My favorite way to eat nut butter is on toast with sliced bananas on top … it’s my breakfast about 95% of the time! πŸ˜‰

  16. Ah yum I love nut butters. I go through a jar of Barney’s Almond butter per week. It’s legit. My favorite way to eat nut butter is with my fingers (clean ;)) of course.. but once it gets too far down for my finger I use a spoon

  17. love eating nut butters straight from the jar! simple and delicious :)

  18. mmmmm- love the idea of the PB on the black bean burger. How’d you make the burger?

    • i cheated and used a morning star black bean burger :) but i loved the flavor combo so much i’m already contemplating making a black bean burger with nut butter in it!!

  19. with a spoon! or with jam on bread… but not on toast. i’m weird, and don’t really like nut butter on toast or a bagel or things like that…reminds me too much of HS/college cross country or track meets i think. i also don’t like it on oatmeal…way too thick and heavy. :)
