Cake Batter Cashew-Macadamia Butter [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan


  • 1 1/2 cups roasted cashews
  • 1/2 cup roasted, salted macadamia nuts
  • 3 tablespoons light agave nectar, divided
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon natural butter extract
  • 1 teaspoon raw vanilla extract
  • Sprinkles (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, toss together the cashews, macadamia nuts, and 2 tablespoons of agave nectar until well coated. Spread out evenly onto the prepared baking sheet and bake until golden brown, about 13-15 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes
  3. Place the nuts into a large food processor and blend until super smooth and creamy, scraping down the sides every few minutes. Depending on the strength of your food processor, this could take a while. Mine took 15 minutes.
  4. Once smooth, Add both of the extracts into the processor and blend to mix.
  5. Scrape the nut butter into a large, air-tight container. Taste and see if you need to stir in the additional 1 tablespoon of agave. Stir in sprinkles if you like.
  6. Store in a cool place. You can also store this in the fridge, but it will firm up slightly, so you may need to microwave for a few seconds to get it nice and spread-able.

I've read "natural butter extract" has either artificial flavor or actual dairy in it. Use coconut oil instead. http://us.daiyafoods.com/blog/how-spot-hidden-dairy-food-labels And agave nectar is definitely not healthy for you; I'd rather use maple syrup or even raw honey (not vegan, I know... but my health is far more important). Used agave for too many years, only to find out later that it's health damaging, raises blood triglycerides, and causes fatty liver disease! Great!!! All for the bees??
