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.
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.
