It couldn’t be nut butter week without making a homemade one am I right? I have tried almond, peanut, sunflower, and even granola butter but could never find a cashew butter. Therefore, I just decided to make my own and even added some yummy super foods to make it even better. Making your own nut butter may take a while but it is worth it! Plus it may look weird and look like it won’t work at first but with a little patience it will form!
Ingredients: -2 cups unsalted cashews -2 tbsps chia seeds -2 tbsps flax seeds Optional: -1 tsp cinnamon -1 tsp vanilla extract -1 tsp cacao powder
Directions: 1. Put the cashews in a food processor. 2. Blend for about 20-30 minutes. May have to scrape down the sides and take a break in between so the food processor doesn’t overheat. 3. Once it is a creamy consistency pulse in the seeds and optional add ins. 4. Transfer to a glass jar and store in fridge or cabinet. Makes about 1 cup. 5. Enjoy with fruit, toast, oatmeal, or right off the spoon!
