Intro: Honey Roasted Cashew Butter
This recipe is SO easy to make and tastes delicious! My boys love this spread on toast, on a banana, or even just on a spoon. It has the consistency of the inside of a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup...so not super runny/oily. If you prefer a smoother nut butter, just add more oil.
2 cups whole roasted cashews (I buy roasted salted cashews)
2 Tablespoons melted coconut oil
1 to 2 Tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon sea salt (you might need slightly more if your cashews are not salted)
1. Put the cashews in your food processor. Pulse until they turn into a very fine crumble. (about 20-30 seconds)
2. Add the honey, salt and coconut oil. Turn on high speed to mix everything completely. This will take about 1-2 minutes. Stop and scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl to make sure everything is incorporated. The mixture will form a ball (just like a baseball). Use a spoon to break up the ball, and pulse about 10 times.....this will keep the dough from forming a ball again.
3. Taste your cashew butter! If you like it, you are done....if not, add a little more salt, oil or honey to make it just the way you like it.
You can store this in an airtight container in the fridge or on the counter. I use a covered glass pyrex container and keep it on the counter :)
