This was my first attempt at making my own nut butter ever! I was nervous, seeing as I don’t even use or buy cashew butter. Yet I had all of these leftover cashews from making my Raw Cashew Cookie Balls so I thought, why not give it a whirl?
I wanted to add a little twist instead of just creating plain ole cashew butter. I love cinnamon and try to add it to anything plus I figured a little sweetness wouldn’t hurt. I decided to add cinnamon and raw maple syrup to the mix and what came out was a sweet and creamy surprise!
Spread some cashew butter on apple slices, use it as a filling for some thumbprint cookies, or just eat it with a spoon! The possibilities are endless!
2 Cups Cashews
1 tbsp Raw Maple Syrup
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tbsp Coconut Oil (optional)
1. Place all of the ingredients into a food processor.
2. Blend the ingredients together. This will take a long time. Keep blending even when you think that it is not going to work. This could take up to 5-7 minutes.
3. Scoop out of the processor and enjoy!Share this post -
