    Oooh what a fabulously innovative nut butter! OK I’m thinking Hannah’s Pantry and Art Tours for your new business. What do you think? 😛

  2. Camille

    I *do* want a whole jar of this to myself. Now. Alas, I will have to wait until I have a food processor again. I’ll just have to placate myself until then with spreadable speculoos. 🙂

    Any time. Any time you would like to come visit (and perhaps cook) you’re more than welcome. 🙂 Bonus: we’re live near huge mountains and natural hot springs and love every single recipe you post.

  4. Kate (What Kate is Cooking)

    Why, oh why do I not have a strong food processor? I want to make this!!

  5. Ellie@fitforthesoul

    What a creative and yummy idea! I can tell I’d like this recipe!! First I have to eat the 508440743 nut butters I have at home though. Well that’s an exaggeration. 😛 I can see how sesame oil and cashew would go great together! Have a great day girlie!

  6. GirlonRaw

    Oh I wish I could make as good a nut butter as you. I think I need to stop being such a purist and add more ingredients like you have xxx

  7. Priyanka

    How did you come up with such an awesome combination. I am sure that molasses must have added quite the flavor!

  8. Michelle @ On and Off My Plate

    Yes, indeedy! I must agree! Looks very good and I bet it would be just fab on a muffin with all the nooks and crannies!

    You don’t know the BBC movies on Pride and Prejudice then? THEY ARE SO AWESOME! I’m sure you’ll love them! They are so beautifully played and tell the story soll well, taking so much time (10 hours overall?) … Ah. So good.

    Here’s the link to Amazon for you to check out:

    Still drooling over you recipe …

    I’m super jealous of your kitchen appliances and the deliciousness they allow you to create. This sounds incredible, even if it does look like a blob of miso 🙂

    Like, Hannah, like. Like this one very much. The flavours are all my favourites – fig, cinnamon, cashews…do you think this nut butter would work as a accompaniment to cheese?

  12. sophia

    This is the kind of nut butter that I will dig in with a shovel!!!

    Hannah, I hereby proclaim you the Nut Butter Goddess.

    smooth and drippy nut butter is something my food processor can only dream of – I see recipes that warn people not to let their ground nuts become nut butter and I laugh at the very idea that my food processor might grow wings and fly into the sky with its undies on the wrong side of its tights!

    the very idea of making a nut butter just to eat off the spoon strikes me as odd but then maybe it is just the name as I was quite happy to eat the home made nutella off a spoon and I guess you could call that a form of nut butter (and who doesn’t love peanut butter straight off the spoon!)

    I loved reading this. It’s so sad when photos don’t do justice to the deliciousness of the food we make. That happens to me all the time – usually with Italian or Mexican. This nut butter sounds great, though, girl!

  16. L-Engineer

    And talking of figs, there is one awaiting collection.

  17. whisperinggums

    Why didn’t I get to try any of this? (Still, I love the literary quotes…)

  18. Simply Life

    oh what a fun little mix and pretty plate with the fruit!

    I’ve heard your feelings on the non-BBC Pride and Prejudice before, but I still disagree! I think the new version captures the tone so well, while the BBC version seems comparatively silly to me. I mean, Colin Firth is my #1 celebrity crush, but he is not the tall, dark, aloof Mr. Darcy I pictured when reading the book. He is less swoon-worthy, almost comes off as bumbling. The music and scenery — given the budget — is wonderful in the recent version, as well.

    ya know, when i first moved out here i had THEE hardest time finding molasses. i remember going to Coles and asking 3 people and they were like…what’s that?? then i found “treacle” and asked if it was similar and NO body knew what that was either. long story short: i made gingerbread cookies with treacle. it wasn’t quite the same….

    hope you’re enjoying your weekend! your recipe looks delish! 🙂

  21. Ricki

    This sounds like something I’d absolutely love. One of my favorite treats used to be nut butter on a rice cake drizzled with blackstrap molasses. . . sadly, can’t have the molasses any more (tried it with yacon–not the same). I’m going to save this recipe for when I can expand my culinary horizons once more!

  22. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga)

    I am drooling at this nut butter, Hannah!!!!!!

    WOW 🙂

  23. Monique

    You had me at fig 🙂 I want to try that ASAP!!!

  24. Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    “After all, it is a truth universally acknowledged that a single girl in possession of a spoon must be in want of a nut butter.” – love it! You should put this as your “about me” 😉 Fabulous.
    This looks positively, ridiculously, incredibly AMAZING!! I must try it soon. I have never made nut butter myself (shame on me), so can’t comment on the consistency debacle. I suppose you will know when you try this again?
    Bravo, Hannah, bravo 🙂

    Such a fabulous nut butter. I wish I could make my own but I don’t have a food processor. *sob*

    Just couldn’t take my eyes out of it, looks so yummy. I can just finish this butter on it’s own.

  28. Miri Leigh

    This nut butter looks absolutely savory! A perfect complement for so many different foods- thanks for sharing!

  29. Jess *Forever Addicting*

    This pretty much made my mouth water on the spot! Fig + cashew + chocolate = I’ll have seconds please! Great recipe, thanks for sharing!

  30. Agnes

    Well at least it doesn’t look like…. 🙂

  31. Anna Johnston

    What a fab recipe gorgeous gal. Want… Just chowed down on a big bowl of meaty pasta and am craving something sweet. Why did ya think to use the molasses? A strange ingredient indeed. Thanks for sharing, Im totes digging your figure of speech, I read your blog posts and think… this chick is bloody wicked, we really must catch up for a beer sometime soon. 🙂

  32. penny aka jeroxie

    oh wow! The flavours… ingenious! I must try.

  33. Julia @ Boredom Abounds

    Yum – these nut butter recipes you post look just delicious. I’m going to have to try and make one for myself I think!

  34. Sarah B @ Bake + Bike

    Hm, I say the tastiness gods are more important than the consistency gods! Heh.

    My tastebuds have a difficult time imagining what this would taste like…but it sounds incredible! I like the idea of mixing fruits into nut butter.

  35. Christie @ Fig and Cherry

    wow, this sounds amazing! I think I’d like it spread thickly on an English Muffin. yum!

  36. Maria @ Scandifoodie

    This sounds so delicious, I could probably just eat this with a spoon 😉

  37. Susan

    I would of thought the nut butter would have won!

  38. Elizabeth

    wow! That sounds incredibly yummy!

  39. travis

    I love having a handful of nuts in one hand and a handful of fruit in the other..(keep your minds out of the gutter!..).. last night I mixed figs and cashews and I knew I was onto something. I couldn’t decide if it was a dressing, a glaze, a cookie or a pie or what, but I think i’ll try this recipe first….
    Thank You

  40. travis

    By the way, I love you talk about your food!

  41. ash

    I made this with the exact amounts specified (adding more oil for texture) and it is AMAZING. Amazing. I can never look at peanut butter (my first love…) the same way again. It’s like a grownup version of kaya. Thanks for the yumness. Can’t wait to try the granola too!

  42. kim

    You shouldve added water in to make it less thick and more of a normal nut butter consistency- u might find you wont even need the oil this way. Otherwise it looks amazing.

    You are hilarious! Love your sense of humour.
