This nut butter is absolutely heavenly. Sweet, salty and flecked with fresh vanilla bean. The cashews are baked with floral honey and then processed into a creamy indulgence. Add a scoop to your morning oatmeal or spread on apples or bananas.
Salted Honey Cashew Butter
2 cups raw cashews
3 TBSP honey
1/4-1/2 teaspoon sea salt (try experimenting with different specialty salts, I love flaky maldon salt)
seeds from 1/3 vanilla bean or 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 325
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Spread the cashews in a single layer on the pan and toss with the honey.
Bake for about 15 minutes, turning once or twice until golden brown.
Allow to cool for about 5 minutes and then scrape into your food processor.
Process and scrape as necessary for about 12-15 minutes. Until buttery and creamy.
Add the salt and vanilla and process again until smooth.
Beware : This butter is highly addictive!
