Raw Walnut Cashew Butter
A raw nut butter made with sweet cashews and walnuts. I added some extra walnuts at the end to make mine "crunchy" and give it texture-- this step is optional!
Servings: 2 cups
- 2 cups cashews
- 1 cup walnuts + 1/2 cup walnuts (otional)
Add cashews and 1 cup of walnuts to a food process bowl. Process, scraping down the sides as necessary.
I find using a kitchen timer helps me stay realistic about how much time the nuts have been processing, so I don't give up before the magic happens.
If you nut butter never quite gets smooth, add walnut oil or coconut oil, 1 tablespoon at a time, to smooth it out. I love the flavor of coconut oil in nut butter.
After your nut butter is very smooth, add extra ½ cup of walnuts and pulse 7-10 times until they are broken up but still leave a slightly chunky texture. This step is optional. You can also leave your nut butter creamy!
