I love baking with cashew flour. It’s super moist and a great blank canvas for any flavor you’re desiring! Baking with almond butter, sunflower seed butter, and peanut butter will always limit your flavor profiles to what pairs well with those particular nuts. Cashew is very bland and neutral which allows for a little more experimentation!

Check out my other cashew butter favs:

Cashew Butter Brownies

Ganache-Filled Flourless Blondies

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cashew Macadamia Nut Butter

Nut Butter Truffles

Can’t find cashew butter? Never fear! Nut butter is SO EASY to make yourself. If you have a food processor, you can do it! It’ll take less than 10 mins from assembling your food processor, to adding the nuts and salt, processing, scraping the sides, and letting it breakdown until the oils release and a buttery, smooth ball forms! Kitchen magic…

INGREDIENTS // one of my favorite activities is going out for coffee. For me, the sights, sounds, and smells of a coffee shop signal rest and I enter into a state of slowing down, more observing and less doing. Lately, I haven't been out to coffee too often because 1. It's expensive and 2. I don't tolerate dairy and I'm not much of a black coffee drinker so at most shops I'm limited to their dairy-free options. While it's nice to have nut milks available, I have discovered that all the other ingredients in these alternative drinks do NOT do my body any good. 
A solution to would be to bring my own homemade milk, but I don't always have some ready or I forget to put a bit in a small container (which then gives me the fun task of toting around a dirty jar in my car all day). These smaller bottles of almond milk are perfect for adding to my coffee when I'm out as most dairy-free milks come in huge cartons and are inconvenient for a coffee outing.  @popandbottle only uses basic, real food ingredients for their almond milk. They even sweeten it with a bit of date! 
I like to think that I always have a choice about what I put in my body. Sometimes I'll have to settle for black coffee, but if I plan a bit, I can still enjoy my coffee outings without ultimately compromising on what is best for me in the long run. SNACKS // kept it really simple today during meal prep. This is a tasty bowl of yams, banana, almond butter, and coconut flakes. FAST FOOD// Roasted all these veggies last night for a tasty quick lunch. Added a new find from Whole Foods. @goodlovinfoods lemon garlic dip. If you like bitchen sauce, you'll like this (!! bonus, they don't use any soy ingredients either !!) ROUTINE// Who else is meal prepping today? It's a small step that has big impact on your health... body and mind. One less stress to consider in a week full of choices and obstacles. #paleomealprep #sandiegoprivatechef #sandiegopaleo
