Ingredients

  • 16 ounces roasted unsalted cashews 16 ounces
  • salt optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 300°F .
  • Roast cashews on a baking sheet for about 15 minutes*.
  • After removing from oven, transfer cashews to a food processor and grind until a smooth, creamy consistency is achieved, about 10 minutes.
  • If adding salt**:
  • Add a small amount of salt (a few shakes), pulse to incorporate, and then taste to determine if you need more salt. Continue until your desired saltiness is reached.
  • White still warm, pour cashew butter into a jar and keep refrigerated.

Notes

*I like to buy roasted nuts and then roast them a bit more at home. I think it gives the nut butters a better flavor.
**Salt is optional. I prefer to add a little to bring out the flavor, but not as much as is in commercially salted nut butters.
