yep.

chocolate nut buttaahhhh

because nut butter & chocolate. are just meant to be together.

think of it like a hazelnut-nutella butter but without all the silly additives!

and you can whip some up SO easily!

as usual, you probably already have the ingredients in your cabinet. which is always a win when you come across a damn good recipe.

side note: i can never get over how nostalgic peanut butter can be. like the idea of pb&j sandwiches just make my heart happy!

am i the only one?!

also, another side note: when making fresh nut butter. it looks like a pile ‘o poo before you spread it out into it’s container.

heads up.

you’re welcome.

 

onto it!

whatcha need:

cacao cashew butter

2 1/2 cups unsalted, roasted cashews
3 tbsp coconut oil, melted
1 tbsp organic cacao powder
2 tbsp walden farms syrup (or honey or regular syrup will work too!)

i used 3 tbsp syrup, because as you see above 2 wasn’t enough and it was a little dry.  so just adjust accordingly. it all truly depends on how dried-out your cashews are. and mine were pretty close to begin stale… so yeah. ha!
