One Ingredient Easy Homemade Cashew Butter

I love cashew butter, but it's so expensive for just a little jar of it. My homemade recipe uses one ingredient (you guessed it, roasted cashews!) and a high power blender or food processor. It takes about 10 minutes, and yields delicious, lightly crunchy cashew butter.

  • 1 cup roasted and salted cashews Get these at Costco to save some $$


  • In a high power blender or food processor, add the cashews.
  • Start blending on low speed allowing the cashews to break down. As they start to get smaller and smaller particle size, you may need to stop and use a spatula to get it moving. It will get to the point where it should go on its own.
  • Continue to blend or process until the texture is to your liking. The less time, the chunkier it is.
  • You can also make thicker chunky butter by processing till smooth then folding in chopped cashews at the end. We prefer more the fine crunch since we still have a toddler eating this with us.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one week.
