Oil-Free Honey Cashew Butter

Oil-Free Honey Cashew Butter
Yields: About 2 cups
dairy-free, egg-free, oil-free, soy-free


  1. Microwave Cashews for 1-2 minutes or until warm to the touch
  2. Add Cashews, then Flax, then Salt, then Honey to Vitamix
  3. Turn to high & using the tamper, constantly push Cashews into the blades
  4. Run about 3 minutes (exceeding 6 minutes could result in this horror)
  5. Spoon Cashew Butter into airtight containers such as 2 pint canning jars
  6. Store in the fridge

Hoff Thoughts: I like to start with raw, unsalted Cashews.  Heating the Cashews helps the nuts release their own natural oils & aid in the blending process.  The Honey acts as a natural preservative, helping to extend the shelf-life of the butter.
