Cashew Butter Recipe – so delicious – you will wonder why you ever ate store-bought!


  • 3.5 cups raw cashews
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Place cashews on a cookie sheet and roast in oven at 375 for 10 minutes.
  2. Remove and let cool slightly.
  3. Pour cashews into food processor.
  4. Add cinnamon, salt and coconut oil.
  5. Blend for approximately 8-10 minutes, stopping every couple minutes to scrap down the sides, or until you reach a creamy texture.
  6. Place in airtight container.


  • Storage: Can be stored on counter for 3 days or so; longer than that and I would recommend keep in refrigerator.
  • Substitutes: You could sub almonds for cashews, but you will just have run your processor quite a bit longer to get that creamy texture.
