Confessions of a Nut Butter Hoarder

Hello, my name is Heather and I am a nut butter hoarder.

Wall of Nut Butter

Though I like to think of it more like “collecting.” 😉

TEN jars lie within the dark and secret-y shelves of my pantry….nine of which are currently open…two of which I guess aren’t “technically” nut butter…one of which I’ve realized I don’t really like…and another one of which expired a year ago.


I can’t help it. Whenever I see a new and intriguing nut butter, I just HAVE to have it…hence the “cinnayum” peanut butter at the top right (found that baby at TJ Maxx!), but a few weeks ago, I decided that it was HIGH time I started making my way through some of my “collection”…

Greek Yogurt Figs & Coconut Peanut Butter

So one morning I whipped up a bowl of Greek yogurt, figs, and coconut peanut butter.

Greek Yogurt Peaches Blueberries & Coconut Peanut Butter

It was so good, the next day, I made the same bowl with peaches and blueberries!

Greek Yogurt Cherries & Almond Butter

Then, I didn’t want the other jars feeling like the coconut peanut butter was getting special treatment so I moved on to some vanilla espresso almond butter and had it with some cherries.

Greek Yogurt Raspberries Figs & Coconut Peanut Butter

But then I ended up coming BACK to the coconut peanut butter…this time with figs AND raspberries!

Greek Yogurt Peaches Figs Chocolate Coconut Peanut Butter & Healthy Chocolate Sauce

But then I was like, no Heather, the other nut butters need a chance…so I pulled out a super secret packet of chocolate coconut peanut butter and drizzled it over a bowl with figs and peaches AND some healthy chocolate sauce.

Oats Raspberries Blueberries & Chocolate Coconut Peanut Butter

Then I started getting tired of Greek yogurt so I made my way to some carby goodness with a bowl of oats, raspberries, blueberries and more of the ninja chocolate coconut peanut butter.

Oats Figs & Coconut Butter with Cacao Nibs

But then the coconut butter called to me so in a bowl glass it went with some oats, figs, and cacao nibs.

Note to self: cold oats + warm coconut butter = DEEEEEE-VINE!

Coconut Peanut Butter & Figs on P28 Bagel

Then I felt like I should spread (ahh, see what I did there? ;)) the nut butter love a little more so I pulled a P28 bagel from the depths of my freezer and slopped on some coconut peanut butter (so, any question as to which one is my favorite?) and figs.

Peanut Butter & Blueberry Jelly Sandwich

Regular bread got in on the action too with some regular peanut butter, blueberries, and blueberry jam.

Fig & Peanut Butter

Then I was totally feeling finger food-y!

Fig & Ovomaltine Spread

Figger food-y?

Fig & Coconut Butter

Look, it’s a faux fig-hawk! 😉

Nut Butter Spoon

Had to happen.

Note to self: Make this your last meal…with a spoon the size of a friggin’ serving platter!

Peanut Butter Luv

What can I say, I’m in LUV!

And of course, all of this was just a way to shove my face full of MORE summer sweetness! 😉

What I Nut-Buttered Wednesday

Now head on over to Peas & Crayons, give a shout out to our hostess and NEW MOMMY, and then see if anyone else linking up is as “nutty” as me! 😉

Ok. Dude. That was corny.

Are there any specific foods you tend to hoard collect?
Of course, you guys KNOW how I am with my mustard but I’m also pretty sure I’m the only single gal with a dedicated “cheese drawer” in her fridge…which may or may not hold thirteen different kinds right now. 😯
