  • 16 oz unsalted roasted cashews*
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, plus more if necessary
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • seeds from 1 vanilla bean
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt


  1. Add cashews and coconut oil to your food processor and process for 5-10 minutes, scraping down the sides as necessary. At this point the cashews should start to clump together. Continue to process until you reach the desired consistency. Add salt, vanilla bean seeds, and vanilla and process again for another minute. If it seems to be clumping together, add a teaspoon or two more of coconut oil.
  2. Transfer to tupperware or mason jar and store at room temperature or in fridge. If you store at room temp, simply give the cashew butter a stir before you use it. Stays longer in fridge.

Recipe Notes

*If you'd like you can use raw cashews instead of roasted cashews. The flavor won't be as intense, but it will still be delicious. If you do want to roast them, you can place them on a baking sheet and roast at 350 degrees for 7-9 minutes.
