This Cinnamon Cashew Butter Is So Easy, We Can Tell You How To Make It Over The Phone

served on FIT Figure Rice + Quinoa

You probably think this is just another cashew butter, like the kind you'll find spread on toast or swirled into a new-age almond yogurt parfait at your garden-variety café. But we‘re here to convince you that it’s not. It’s really, really not. This nut butter is nothing like the stuff you'll find in a jar, yet is super simple to make. 

You will LOVE this cinnamon cashew butter! It’s:

Creamy
Vanilla-infused
Cinnamon-y
Naturally sweet
Easy to make
+ Insanely delicious


INGREDIENTS

  • 4 cups raw cashews
  • 2 vanilla beans, split
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 tbsps coconut oil
  • 5 tbsps maple syrup
  • 4 apples, cut into slices (we recommend Gala, Pink Lady or Granny Smith)

 

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 325 F and place raw cashews on a medium-sized baking sheet. Spread evenly in one layer and toast for 10-15 minutes or until lightly golden. Let cashews cool on pan for 10 minutes.
  2. Place slightly cooled cashews in bowl of food processor and cover with lid. Process for about 10 minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl periodically if necessary.
  3. Once your cashews have turned into a slightly creamy consistency, while the motor running, add vanilla bean, cinnamon, coconut oil and maple syrup and process the cashew butter for another 5 minutes, or until desired consistency.
  4. Spread your home made cashew butter on rice cakes or crispbreads, top with apple slices and sprinkle with cinnamon. Transfer the remainder of cashew butter into a glass jar with lid and store in fridge.

 

The good news is that homemade cashew butter lasts for about six months once it's opened. The bad news is that a batch of homemade nut butter rarely lasts past two weeks in a household of two people or more.

PRO TIP: We rarely buy fancy nut butters because of the price tag. When we’re in the mood for a treat, buying the raw nuts is a much more cost-effective way to enjoy special nut butters. Great thing about making your own nut butter is that you can control the salt and sugar levels and you also get to flavor it however you want! Add cocoa powder, espresso powder, pumpkin purée (SO GOOD), maple syrup or whatever you can dream up!


DO AHEAD: You can toast your cashews a day prior and store them in an airtight container.

Put on your plaid scarf, vest, and most basic sweater, because Starbucks’ coveted fall drink aka Pumpkin Spice Latte aka PSL is making a comeback today. And that means fall is unofficially here.
