Cashew Macadamia Nut Butter

Seriously, what is it with Trader Joe’s discontinuing all these great products over the years? Anyone remember this…

This stuff was delicious. Not to mention, it was a nice alternative to the standard almond butter AND it was stupid cheap compared to most nut butters you find in any health food store (14.99 for a 8 oz. JAR?!?!?).Β Recently I was reminded of the glorious taste of cashew butter and decided that I needed a batch in my fridge. I also had some macadamias on hand so I whipped up a little medley of the two. Super amazing. Try it.

Cashew Macadamia Nut Butter

1 16 oz. bag of raw cashews
5-6 oz. of macadamia nuts, roasted and salted
pinch of salt
pinch of cinnamon

  1. Lightly toast the cashews in a skillet over medium heat or in the oven. (Watch closely to make sure they don’t burn).
  2. In a food processor, add toasted cashews, mac nuts, salt and cinnamon.
  3. Let that baby whirl for a good long while. This is very similar to almond butter.
  4. After a while you may need to scrape down the sides, you only should do this about once or twice.
  5. Let it process until the pulverized nuts form into a ball and then flatten out into the butter texture. IT WILL TAKE A WHILE. BE PATIENT.

Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.

For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
.
Be back later!
