Chia & Flax Cashew Butter

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!
