I’m no stranger to nut butters. My go-to is usually protein-packed almond butter but, with my newfound obsession adoration of cashews, I’m jumping into the decadence that is cashew butter + chocolate. This raw treat contains coconut oil that will harden in the fridge, so it is best placed right on the kitchen counter where you can see it. Serve on warm toast or take your spoon and dive on in.


12 oz Raw Cashews (soaked for 30 mins)

2 tbsp Raw Cacao Powder

1 tbsp coconut oil

1 tsp honey

Sea Salt, a pinch

Place the cashews in a food processor (or high powered blender) and process until smooth, like butter. This will take some time, so have a bit of patience – I promise it’s worth it. Once smooth, add in the cacao powder, coconut oil, honey and salt. Blend again, until buttery once more.

    This looks lovely – but it’s not raw.
    Cashews have to be heat-treated as part of the harvesting process, so they’re not raw.
    They’re also acidifying, rather than alkalising, like almonds. So they’re not really that good for you.
    Lots of raw foodies make cashews a daily staple in their “I’m 100% raw” diet – and they don’t realise they’re not a raw or particularly healthy ingredient. Most honey is pasteurised, so it’s not raw either, unless you can gte an unpasteurised supply. And most coconut oil has been heat-treated, unless you can find a raw version. I’m only commenting because you have said so many times in the post that it’s a raw recipe, which it isn’t, apart from the cacao powder. 😉
    So this recipe would be much better made with sprouted almonds or even Brazils (better oils).
    Thanks for sharing, though. It does look yummy.
