I came up with this lovely concoction when I was attempting to make a peanut style sauce for spring rolls. It requires an extra step or two more than what is normal for our recipes but it’s well worth it. This is a delicious cashew butter that you can use on almost anything, even if you just pair it with an apple.
1 ½ cups cashews
2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
¼ cup apple cider vinegar (the vinegar provides a slightly fruity flavor to the butter, feel free to substitute with water if you prefer)
3 tbsp honey
½ tsp salt
In a food processor blend cashews until you have little granules.
Bring a medium sauce pan to low heat, combine coconut oil, vinegar, honey and salt.
Add processed cashews to liquid mixture and stir until well combined.
If you would like a smoother consistency pour back into processor and blend until you reach desired consistency.
This cashew butter recipe is simple to make. It has a sweet taste and can be used as a topping for several of the baked good recipes we feature. It can also be paired with fruit to provide a filling snack.
