Woo! It’s Friday friends! I’m visiting my mom, brother, and stepdad this weekend so I’m going to make this post short and sweet. I have been wanting to make my own nut butters for a while. I thought about doing a chocolate almond butter, but the Hubs has a thing for cashews so chocolate cashew butter it was! This chocolate cashew butter was super tasty and would perfect to use smeared with some jelly on a sandwich, with apple slices, or in cookies! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Chocolate Cashew Butter

Makes about 2 cups of cashew butter


– 2 cups unsalted cashews

– 2-3 tbs. vegetable or coconut oil

– pinch of salt (or to taste)

– 2 tbs. unsweetened cocoa powder

– 1/4-1/2 cup honey or agave nectar (optional)


1. Add all ingredients to a food processor and process until the butter reaches your desired consistency. You may want to only add one tablespoon of the oil at at time and only add more if needed. If you want the butter to be smoother, add more oil.

– I left mine on the thicker side, but the longer you process, the more smooth it will become!
– Adding the honey or agave nectar is totally optional. If you don’t want your cashew butter to have a sweet taste, then don’t add it!
– Cashews can spoil very quickly, so store your cashew butter in a container in the fridge!

Oh! And before I forget, I want to give a big thanks to Ramona over at Curry and Comfort for passing the Happy Blogger award to me! Thanks so much, Ramona!
