I think it’s safe to say, within the Healthy Living bloggers community, it is borderline criminal to not have at least three jars or nut butter on hand at any one time. Anything less than that and you may as well be banished and volunteer yourself as tribute….(I’m not sure to what though. Katniss- help me out).


Almond butter, peanut butter, coconut butter- the list can go on but you get the point- there would be some version lying in your cabinet/pantry/spoon as we speak (blog).

The other day, I had made a batch of these no bake cookies using almond butter (from Dav’s E-book- do it!) and had used it all up in the recipe. Come Sunday morning, all I wanted was toast with some nut butter. Any form of nut butter. Yet I had none. Blasphemy.


Technically, I had a few jars, but those were packed in my suitcase as gifts. Gifting someone an already opened jar of nut butter may not be the best first impression…unless I could make it sound like an endearing thought (Davs..would you have minded a half opened jar of peanut butter?). No, that wasn’t possible. Besides, my suitcase was already packed in such a way to avoid any potential breakages. (i.e. wrapped in scarves and t-shirts and stuffed at the bottom).

What do to? 

  1. stop being a twat and just eat something else
  2. go out and buy a jar
  3. Make my own

I pondered.

  1. No
  2. No
  3. But need to hunt down some nuts.

You know what is coming next. Zilch.

…Until I remembered I had made another batch of my spicy honey roasted peanuts to bring to Charlotte to force her to tell me they were better than Nutz4nuts when we would meet up in NYC.


Blender + Spicy honey roasted peanuts = spicy honey roasted peanut butter. Done. 5 minutes. BOOM.

Craving = satisfied.

Before you think I’m a twat for robbing Charlotte of this gift- NO ONE will ever beat Nutz4nuts.

Well, that’s what I’m going to keep telling myself to alleviate the guilt.

  • 3 cups of Spicy Honey Roasted Peanuts see link under recipe card for recipe
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon canola/coconut oil optional


  • 1. Pour nuts into a strong food processor or blender which has food processing capabilities and process until a very crumbly texture is formed and scrape down the sides every so often. Continue pulsing until a smooth nut butter is formed.
  • 2. Add the extra cayenne pepper and cinnamon and process once more for an extra 20-30 seconds. If you prefer your nut butter extra smooth, add the 1 T of oil and pulse once more.


For a vegan option, I've tried subbing the honey with agave and maple and prefer the agave.

    1. Welp lock me up and throw away the key because I currently only have one giant jar of pb 🙂 I’ve been really wanting to try sunflower butter though so I guess that can be what I add to my collection next. I love the idea of spicy pb – sounds like it’d make an amazing sandwich!

      1. No. You may not. However, you can sub nutritional yeast for it. It’s JUST like pizza except better.

    2. My dorm room has three jars right now, not counting the ones I have at home, the vats of peanut butter available in the dining hall, and the Wild Friends peanut butter that I plan on ninja-ing from my floor mate. Nut butter is ALWAYS a craving.
      Spicy honey roasted peanut butter sounds so awesome. I’m all for adding spice to life. I even had sriracha with my eggs at breakfast this morning! I’m a changing person!!!

    3. I have two jars of nut butter (almond and peanut, both crunchy obviously) and just finished my chocolate soy butter. I also have a bunch of bags of nuts because I want to be creative and make my own. I think I might actually take this recipe but use almonds instead of peanuts. Sound like a good plan?

    4. I have 5 jars on the go at the moment – HLB status assured! 😉
      I remember when I had a massive craving for tinned mackerel – I went to 5 different supermarkets in the rain to find it…. So worth it!

    5. I made almond butter using my blender once and ended up burning some of the mixture! Oops! Definitely need to invest in a food processor as I’ve now learned that blenders do not equal food processors.

    6. Poor Charlotte! But genius idea! I am also working on a spicy/ salty nut butter recipe right now.
      I guess I have around 7 open jars of nut butter right now. So cliché!
      And I one bought about 8 packs of Fonzies (best cheese snack ever) for my family and ended up eating 5 myself. Oh yes and then there was the granola incident on Sunday….

      1. YES! I love experimenting with them both and can’t wait to try some new ideas! 7? Geeze….

        FONZIES? What is this goodness?!

        1. Oh you would love them! It’s an Italian corn snack with cheese. Very salty and chrunchy. One of my absolute favorites from my childhood.

    7. I’m straight addicted to nut butters and actually TRY to NOT have them around at times, but that lasts all of 13 hours and I go buy more. I have two on deck right now…this is good. I have been wanting to make my own with cayenne for a while now. I put that shit on ERRYTHANG (the cayenne, and I guess nut butter too) so I must try it with nut butter.

      I currently have about 2T of peanut butter left in my house. Don’t fret though, I’m swinging by the store tonight JUST for nut butters. Although I don’t think I’ll buy 3 jars. Then again…anythings possible….

    9. Cayenne Pepper in Nutbutter?! That is genius Arman!
      I brought a jar of Nuts’n More Almond Butter to Tim in Berlin in September. Next day when he went off to work, I cracked open the jar and had a third of it. I bought him a beer later on.

    10. How selfish 😉 ! I hope Charlotte will chase you with a wooden spoon, broomstick or whichever similar tool she has lying around when she meets you and finds you sacrificed your gift to her to satisfy your nut butter cravings. That would be unheard of for me. Or at least I’d like to think so though lack of nut butter is a serious emergency so who knows which lengths I’d go???

    11. That’s why it is so hard to give food as gifts… it’s far too edible! This sounds like an amazing combination though and for fear of losing my food blogger card (I only have a jar of PB and its almost gone) I may have to make myself a batch ASAP.
