Nut Butter Yumminess

Pin It!

Howdy partners Chocolate Chips!


It’s really Saturday already?? Artisana Nut Butter Week has gone by too fast.

There’s still so much I want to share: more meal ideas, more recipes (including the aforementioned coconut butter cookies) and the big kahuna Artisana Giveaway.  But I don’t want the theme to become monotonous and drawn out, especially for those of you who do not have access to Artisana nut butters. So, for the next few weeks, I’ll intersperse the rest of the nut butter love—including the big giveaway post and the Coconut Butter Cookie post—with other yummies unrelated to Artisana nut butters. How does that sound?  For now, a recap of Nut Butter Week :



On Thursday, there was chocolate-covered “Peanut Butter Cup” Pie.

And it was made with zucchini?? Yeah, weird. But delicious, just the same!

Even my non-healthy-eating friends gave it the seal of approval.


The Artisana Raw Cashini butter got naughty.

Hey, at least I restrained myself from uttering the phrase my, what a teeny cashini hammock.


I inhaled some coconutty intense post-“workout” fuel

(By the way, the winner of the Artisana squeeze pack mini giveaway was Amy. I emailed you, so let me know if you didn’t get it.)


And I made a mean Peach Faux-Yo Sundae.

(Can’t waste those coconut cookie crumbs, now can we?)


Finally, the white hockey puck raw cheesecake:


Just another crazy CCK creation: Raw “Sneaky Veggie” Cheesecake.

Gotta get in those veggies!



If you had a theme week on your blog (or in your life), what topic would you choose?

I’d say a week of celebrating chocolate… but um, yeah that would look like every other week of my life! I seem to like doing theme weeks on this blog; I’ve already done Spiralizer Week, Oatmeal Week, Stevia Week, and Vita-Mix Week.

    My theme week would be to celebrate dance :)

  2. Brooke says:

    Hi Katie,

    I absolutely adore your blog. Thank you for sharing such yummy recipes. Where, oh where, can I find a spiralizer? I have searched high and low to no avail!! I need a spiralizer in my life!!

    1. Thanks, girl!! Here’s a post I wrote about the spiralizer I got: It’s great; really easy to use!

  3. Theme week for my blog: book week or maybe cookie week? 😛

  4. This week has totally been Pumpkin Week! I have been using pumpkin in eeeeverything and it has been glorious!

  5. Justine says:

    I would have a week of pancakes! However, that could be the enormous plate of pancakes that I just made talking here…….How about sweet potato week? It may seem borning, but there are so many things one can do with a sweet potato…….

    Happy Saturday, Katie :)

  6. susan says:

    So glad this week will continue haha! I’ve been reslly enjoying all of the recipes! If I chose a theme week I think it would be bean week. Or sweet potato week!

  7. mckella says:

    Art week, or something to do with intuitive eating or body image, but I write about that often anyway. Maybe Foodie Week.

  8. Hmm.. this is a difficult one.. maybe Italian week? or cheese week? or cabbage week? 😀

  9. VEGirl says:

    Every week should be nut butter week! They are my favorite food, next to fruit.

  10. Albizia says:

    I’ve had strawberry week and blueberry week but never devoted a whole week to something in my blog. I am too lazy to post everyday :) .

  11. I hate, hate, hate waste and actually feel this sense of loss when I have to throw food away … which still happens way more than I would like … goal time :)

  12. Oops, I think I responded on the wrong post! I was catching up on google reader :)

    A theme? Probably cookie week!

  13. Kiersten says:

    I don’t know what my week would be. At first I was going to say either nut butter or oatmeal week, but every week is nut butter/oatmeal week. I should have a chickpea week since I like cooking with them so much.

  14. my theme would be fall fashion jewel tones edition

  15. Caitlin says:

    I’m excited for that cookie recipe!

    I would probably have an “ice cream” theme week, immediately followed by an “oh my gosh I need vegetables right now please no more sugar” theme week.

  16. Everything looks delicious! I would have to say waffle week! I am seriously loving waffles lately!

  17. hippierunner says:

    “Teeny Cashini Hammock”? Lol. I can never stick to one food for too long so I couldn’t have a whole week of something!

  18. Theme week? how to work full time, parent full time, and buy ZERO prepared/convenience foods while staying true to a GF high raw vegan path.

    When you figure out the answers to that one, LMK. It’s the theme of my life…haha! And most of the time I do well, but it’s not always easy, and it keeps me BUSY, but I wouldnt have it any other way.

    Enjoy your Weekend Katie!

  19. I found Artisana raw coconut butter at my local grocery store the other day!!

    I scooped that baby right up. I adore coconut and I was definitely not disappointed! It was love at first bite! I had it today with a sliced banana, some raw almond butter, some coconut flakes, and a hefty sprinking of Grape Nuts (high in iron). It was awesome… :)

    1. So excited you found it! Haha another convert to the cause. We’ll take over the world yet with our coconutty message, right? 😉

      1. Raychel says:

        Ok I just got a sample of artisana coconut butter today (I’ve been wanting to try it after seeing how often you post it and it looks so good). My only problem was I didn’t know how to heat it to 85 degrees (how long in microwave? or under hot water?)… so I kind of burned it a little… oops :( I was pretty sad, but the parts that didn’t burn tasted really good! I know I’m going to buy a big jar now (they sent me the cutest 1 oz jar), but I was just wondering what your preferred method is so that I don’t screw it up again.

        Thanks !

        1. LOL it’s actually so hot here that lately the butter melts by itself. But in the winter, I do this:

  20. Stefanie says:

    I would say grain week would be a fun theme. That and sweet potato would be interesting. One day I will make that cheesecake. :)

  21. Jess says:

    I think that a week of peanut butter would be good. Making something savory, sweet, and salty with it!!

  22. Shelby says:

    OMG! Your blog makes me hate that I stopped blogging! I missed out on all your delicious recipes! Oh well, guess I’m taking a couple hours to look though your posts and get some ideas (:

  23. caronae says:

    Artisana nut butter week is the best week ever! If I could have a theme week it would be “super easy college student dinners”!

  24. michelle says:

    I can’t get the little butter packs…very sad. I could do coconut month! easily

  25. 40apples says:

    My theme would be, decidedly, apples. With hummus coming in a close second. :)

  26. Erika says:

    If I could choose a theme week for my blog I would choose between nut butter, chocolate, smoothies, oatmeal, and baked goods. All of the things that I would be able to eat everyday for months! :-)

  27. Thanks for Artisana week, Katie!!! I love, love, loved it :) I can’t wait to see the coconut butter cookies-to see what you came up with! I am actually planning on going to the store to get some zuchinni…

    I’ve been wanting (and planning) to do a “Travel Week” with tips on eating healthy on the road (or in the air), and a Smoothie Week.
