If you don’t have a food processor. I HIGHLY recommend getting one. My baby Kitchen-Aid is my new BFF.
Ashley from The Edible Perspective has the most amazing recipes for nut butters. I sort of mixed, matched, and modified her versions to create my own.
So…here is a little nut butter tutorial.
Cinnamon Cashew Butter
-1.5 C Roasted Unsalted Cashews
-1/2 t Cinnamon, ground
-1/2 t Vanilla
*You can also add sugar/maple syrup/honey and salt.
Directions: Mix all ingredients in a small food processor and process for 5-8 minutes until your nuts become smooth and creamy! You will have to stop and scrape the sides a few times.
