Cashew Butter [V + GF]

Prep time: 15 minutes

Total time: 15 minutes

Yield: 16 oz

Equipment

Food processor (see mine!)
Butter knife
16 oz mason jar

Ingredients

3 cups unsalted cashews

Optional add-ins:
Sea salt
Cinnamon
Coconut Sugar
Vanilla
Raisins
Cacao powder
Coconut oil
Flax seed

Instructions

  1. Place cashews in the bowl of your food processor. Process on high for one minute. The nuts will have lost their shape and should look like a crumble.
  2. At this time place any add-ins of your choice (optional) into the food processor. Process on high, using a butter knife to scrape the sides as necessary.
  3. It will take 3 to 5 minutes for the oil to be extracted from the nut crumble and the butter to start to form. Be patient with it and continue to pause and scrape/break up clusters that form on the edges of the bowl.
  4. After a few minutes the nuts should start to collect in a ball. Stop the process and break it up with your butter knife as necessary. Use your knife to mix the butter thoroughly as there is probably a stuck layer on the bottom of the bowl.
  5. Once the nut butter has formed, process on high for 5 to 10 more minutes. The longer, the creamier.
  6. When you are satisfied with the consistency of your butter, transfer it to a mason jar. Store at room temperature for up to two weeks or in the fridge for a few months. Freeze indefinitely. Enjoy!
