After making a batch of fresh strawberry jam, there was a small, but noticeable, PB&J shaped hole in my heart. Since I try to stick mostly to a Paleo diet, which does not include peanuts, I opted for cashew butter instead.
Making nut butters is the easiest thing in the world. Throw the nuts in a food processor and wait. The nuts naturally release oils that eventually make a spread. But if you’re just way too excited like me, you can also cut the time down by adding in coconut oil.
With this nut butter I opted to add in a few extra “goodies” making this a trail mix cashew butter and a recipe I couldn’t wait to share!
Trail Mix Cashew Butter
3 cups Cashews
3 tbsp Coconut Oil
2 tbsp Cinnamon
½ cup Raisins
¼ cup Shredded Coconut
¼ cup Cacao Nibs
- Place the cashews and coconut oil in a food processor
- Blend until smooth
- Stir in the trail mix toppings (raisins, coconut, cacao nibs)
