Like nut butter, cashew butter is a homemade recipe that is worth making at home because of how easy it is. In addition, they are delicious and very healthy recipes.
You only need two ingredients, raw cashews and virgin coconut oil that will give it a special touch. Likewise, you only need an oven and a mixer. Easy right?
A healthy recipe
It is a healthy recipe, since the ingredients are natural and healthy. Likewise, we can buy cashews throughout the year as they are a dry fruit. The same goes for coconut oil.
You can also buy these roasted nuts. However, I prefer to roast them at home to leave them to my liking. Also, freshly roasted they are easier to grind.
On the other hand, extra virgin coconut oil is ideal to give creaminess in these recipes. You can also use another oil such as extra virgin olive.
Benefits of cashews
The cashew is a dried fruit that is ideal to include in our diet. It is usually eaten raw or roasted. We just have to be careful not to add too much salt.

Homemade cashew butter
Easy and creamy homemade cashew butter. You won’t believe how simple it is to do it!
- 4 cups raw cashews
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin coconut oil
Preheat the oven to 160ºC and place the raw cashews on a medium-sized baking sheet. Spread the nuts evenly and toast them for 10-15 minutes, or until lightly browned. Let cool for 10 minutes.
Place the cashews in a blender glass. Blend until a fine dough is left. Add the coconut oil and beat a couple more minutes to get the desired consistency and mix well.
Store in jars with a lid and store in the fridge.
I recommend using the recommended 4-cup serving in a regular blender glass. With more quantity it will be difficult for you to leave a fine texture in the butter.
When to have cashew butter?
Cashew butter is an ideal recipe to simply take with toast, it is delicious.
Also, we can use it as an ingredient in other recipes for sauces, salads or pastries.
