So, as I said before, I was going to share recipes of some of my basics that I’ve been making for quite a while. This is one of them, homemade cashew butter. There is only one ingredient… Can you guess what it is? Of course, it’s raw cashews!

Many other commercially made cashew and other nut butter have many ingredients. If you make your own then you decide what goes in. For me, I only use cashews. I always use up my cashew butter within one month, so I know it lasts that long. I’m not sure how much longer.

Homemade Cashew Butter

One Ingredient Cashew Butter (Paleo/ Gluten Free/ Refined Sugar Free)

2 cups raw cashews

Pulse cashews in a food processor. Every 30 seconds to a minute stop and scrap down the sides. It will seem like forever, but within about 10-12 minutes you will have nice creamy cashew butter. If you’d like your cashew butter a little thinner then add 1 teaspoon at a time of a neutral tasting oil, blending thoroughly.

  1. “Many other commercially made cashew and other nut butter have many ingredients.”
    They also cost an arm and a leg!!
    This sounds great! Less expensive and without all of the added ingredients. I can just picture slathering this on some warm toast… mmmm.
    Thanks for sharing at Healthy Vegan Fridays Sandi! I’m pinning.

  2. This sounds amazing and so easy! I love cashew butter; I use it almost every morning in my smoothies! Check out my blog for tons of healthy recipes, many gluten free!

  3. That is so cool! I’d love to make my own cashew butter! My food processor is my best baking friend, I’ll have to try this out. 🙂
