Tips & Notes

This was a nice filling snack especially with bananas, grapes and gingernuts dipped in!! However it didn’t taste like cake batter – maybe it was the cashew butter I used?
What cashew butter would you recommend that’s drippy?
Trader Joe’s makes the best one and cheapest, too!
WHERE IS THE RECIPE BIT?????
Can you use a food processor instead of a blender? This looks delicious..can’t wait to try it!
Yes you can absolutely!
Can you substitute natural peanut butter (on hand) for the cashew butter?
Yes! And it would be delish 😍😍
