Vanilla Cashew Butter
This vanilla cashew butter is so easy to make at home, and a fraction of the price of store-bought nut butters - and it's more delicious!
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Start by preheating the oven to 300 degrees F.
Spread the cashews on a baking sheet, and toast in the oven for 10 minutes. (Note - if you toast the cashews longer, the bioavailability of the nutrients in them will decrease.)
Once nuts are done toasting, remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes.
Now, add the nuts, salt, and vanilla to your food processor. Process continually for 8 -10 minutes, until a creamy nut butter is formed. Note, you may have to pause and scrape down the sides of the food processor many times. Also note that the time it takes to make a creamy nut butter will depend on the size and power of your food processor.
When done, scoop your nut butter into a (preferably glass) container - it will fit perfectly into a half pint mason jar - and enjoy!
If you ever smell a burning scent or your food processor gets really hot, pause and let the machine cool down for a few minutes.
