This easy 5 ingredient homemade cashew butter tastes like a cinnamon roll! It’s a healthy, gluten free and paleo friendly spread that is good on everything!
Hey internet friends. Question for ya:
Have you ever thought to yourself “I wish I could marry my toast obsession with my obsession with that moment where my tongue tingles with the ooey-gooey, spicy-sweet flavors of the VERY VERY center of some warm, fresh-from-the-oven cinnamon rolls?”
If you haven’t…I BET YOU ARE NOW.
I knew it.
Well, cinnamon-roll-and-toast-loving friends of the interwebz, today your just-thought-it-right-now question of LIFE is being answered:
Cinnamon. Roll. Cashew. Butter.
AKA: Cinnamon crack butter.
SRSLY. This stuff? Move over toast ‘cause you’re gonna be going STRAIGHT into this paleo cinnamon roll cashew butter recipe with a SPOON. Might even rival your love of that oatmeal cookie granola butter.
Or maybe slather it on some almond flour paleo cinnamon rolls?
Except, don’t move that toast over tooooo far since a thick, creamy, perfectly sweet cashew butter slather on top of a crispy, crunchy, golden brown slice of toasty bread is basically about to DEFINE your very morning-person breakfast identity.
It’s like the inside of some healthy cinnamon rolls in the sense that the warm bread has got those similar sensations of fresh-from-the-oven baked goodness, and the (5 ingredient!) cashew butter has EVERY single pop of warm cinnamon and deep, rich coconut sugar that you crave.
Not to mention the fact that cashew butter is MEGA smooth and creamy….kiiiiinda like cream cheese frosting.
Except with this underlying, addictive nutty flavor profile that tickles your taste buds in a VRY VRY exciting way.
I have this feeling that you are like me in the ways that you crave food variety but are ALSO very apprehensive about straying from your usual food choices. I mean, what if you DON’T LIKE IT and then have a case of food DISAPPOINTMENT. <– we’ve all been there. I KNOW that you know what I mean.
Because you are like me, I have a sneaky suspicion that your just-woke-up life has revolved around some healthy cinnamon roll protein oatmeal for the past, uhh, EVER. It’s really delish, super EZ and tastes like your most favorite baked good.
BUT. The quest for variety is slooowwwwlyyy creeping its way inside your belly.
ENTER this homemade cashew butter.
So many options with all your feel-good, know-you’re-gonna-like-it flavor vibes.
Let’s get cozy and discuss the ghee in here. I know that we’ve never ever eaten this before, how-EV-ER, it’s the super-secret ingredient that is going to make your stupid-simple cashew butter remind you of that moment when your teeth sink into buttery, fluffy bread that is rolled with melty, oozy cinnamon and sugar.
Ghee has this RICH, decadent, buttery flavor that weaves its way in and out of each creamy spiral that you slather onto, well, ANYTHING.
Combine that with a heavy hit of cinnamon and coconut sugar, and you’ve got the TRIFECTA of cashew butter HEAVEN.
Three cheers to new found breakfasts.
You know, with a little bit of food-loving-safety on the side.
- 2 cups raw unsalted cashews roughly chopped (260g)
- 3 tablespoons coconut sugar
- 1 tablespoon ghee melted
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
- pinch of salt
- Place the cashews and coconut sugar in good quality food processor and process until the cashews release their oil and become smooth, scraping down the sides as needed. Depending on the strength of your food processor, this could take 10-15 minutes, and you’ll have to scrape the sides very frequently. Make sure to let your food processor rest every few minutes if this is the case.
- Add in the melted Ghee, vanilla, cinnamon and a pinch of salt and blend until combined.
- Transfer to a container, store at room temperature, and DEVOUR!
