    Ingredients

    200g Cashew nuts

    Instructions

    Preheat the oven to 180C (without the fan).

    Now scatter the cashew nuts on a baking tray. Roast them for 10 minutes until they are golden brown.

    Remove from the oven. Pour the cashew nuts into the blender (I use a Vitamix). Blend on medium power. Stop and scrape down the sides. Repeat this process about 10 times. Gradually the cashew nut butter gets more and more smooth. It took me about 25 minutes of blending and scraping to reach a suitably smooth cashew butter.

    Now spoon the cashew butter into a jar. Voila! You have homemade cashew nut butter!
