Simple Coffee Bean Cashew Butter
This simple coffee bean cashew butter is delicious with everything from apples and bananas to crispbread or crackers.
- 1 cup raw cashews
- 1/2 tablespoon ground coffee beans for best and freshest results, grind them yourself right before using
- 1/2 tablespoon pure maple syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- pinch sea salt (optional)
Soak the cashews for 1 hour in hot water or 4 hours to overnight in cold water.
Drain and rinse cashews. Add to a mini food processor. Then add the rest of the ingredients and pulse or chop to combine until smooth and creamy. You will need to stop the processor every now and then to scrape down the sides with a spatula. If the mixture seems dry, add a little water, 1 teaspoon at a time until desired consistency is achieved.
Enjoy immediately or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
