Homemade Coconut Cashew Butter

Making your own nut butters is so addicting. Watching the golden nuts blend and grind and eventually turn into a smooth paste is so reassuring.On that day when you should be studying for a biology genetics unit test, a chemistry quantities test, an accounting quiz, finishing various applications for jobs and the like (DEEP BREATH IN), make Cashew Coconut Butter.


You might be knee-deep in textbooks and papers (and when I say you, I mean me), but this cashew coconut butter? So. Good. A total stress-reliever, especially when ingested by the generous spoonfuls.

Homemade Coconut Cashew Butter

Yield: about 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons

Ingredients:
  • 1 ½ cups roasted cashews
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar 
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil 

Directions:
 
In the bowl of a food processor, combine cashews, salt, and sugar. Process for three to five minutes until the cashews turn into a smooth butter, scraping down the sides as needed. Add the coconut oil and vanilla bean seeds to the food processor and process until combined.

  10. Love nut butters & this one is intriguing - I would not have thought of combining coconut and cashew flavors together but, of course, it makes complete sense. Can't wait to try it!
