Super Easy Cashew Butter

 Seriously, so easy! 

I've been eyeing the shelf of nut butters at the co-op lately but I can't seem to swallow the $8+ per container cost. I just cringe a little when I've seen so many pins on Pinterest for homemade nut butters. I decided to give it a go and see what would happen.

I LOVE cashews. They taste amazing and some people even say that cashews have a fantastic mood lifting ability (and watching a toddler all day, I will take whatever I can get to lift my mood!). 


The ingredients. Cashews and grapeseed oil.


Easy Homemade Cashew Butter

 2 cups cashews

1-2 tbsp Grapeseed oil


Process cashews in food processor or blender until finely chopped, add in oil 1/4 - 1/2 tbsp 

at a time, continue processing or blending until as smooth as you want it. 

Notes: 

I only used 1 1/4 tbsp of oil. 

If using ROASTED cashews you probably won't need oil.

You may sub the Grapeseed oil with olive oil, sunflower oil, or any other mild flavor oil.
