I’ve probably said this before but I could spend all too much money on something like a fancy nut butter. Even plain almond butter or cashew butter runs a mean price tag when it’s so easy to make at home. I picked up a pound of cashews for $5 from the bulk bin and managed to make 18oz of “gourmet” cashew butter with a few ingredients on hand. I’ll never look back at store-bought again.
Honey Cashew Butter
- 4 cups cashews, raw or roasted
- 3 Tablespoons honey
- 2 Tablespoons neutral oil
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
Add the cashews to a food processor and start blending on high.
When the cashew butter starts to form a dough ball, add in the honey, salt, and oil and continue processing. Stop sooner for a thicker consistency or blend longer for a smooth and runny cashew butter.
I like my cashew butter a little chunky so I didn’t puree it too much and it came out perfect. On a spoon it almost taste like cookie dough. This could be dangerous.
