Here is a comforting and delicious recipe for cashew butter. Furthermore, you can customize the flavor to make it the best cashew butter ever; so luxurious, rich and creamy that it is simply addictive.  


  • 3 cups raw whole cashews or cashew pieces

Optional Flavoring:

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon Coconut Oil


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Place raw cashews on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and roast cashews in the oven for about 10-11 minutes. Stir occasionally, and be sure to keep an eye on the nuts for the last few minutes to make sure they do not burn. They should have a golden brown color.
  2. Add the warm roasted cashews to a high-powered food processor and pulse to start the blending process. Scrape the sides with a spatula to ensure all the nuts are processed. Continue this process until all the nuts are incorporated. Let blend on high for about 10 minutes or until the cashew butter reaches its creamy consistency.


  • The Cashew Butter will go through several phases or stages. First, expect the cashews to look like chopped nuts, then ground nuts. After a while, they will start looking like dry clumps of ground nuts. In due time, the nuts will begin to look like a paste, and, finally, they will turn into creamy cashew butter. Trust the process; be patient; it takes a while before the nuts release the oil and turn into cashew butter.
