You guys.

GUESS WHAT! IT IS! 

We were running low on peanut butter, and I didn't want to use up the rest.  I spied some raw cashews in the pantry, so I decided to make cashew butter.

All you have to do is roast the cashews, throw them into a Vitamix or food processor, add a bit of coconut oil and a pinch of salt, and then pulse until a buttery texture is reached.

What a happy accident!

I added the left over cashew butter to the rest of the peanut butter, and we have been devouring it.

Heaven surely smells of freshly roasted cashew butter!!

I followed my recipe for Vegan Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Easter Eggs and used 1/2 cup of peanut butter and 1/2 cup of cashew butter, in addition to two tablespoons of chia seeds. I also added 2 tablespoons of King Arthur's Black Cocoa to the chocolate before I dipped the peanut butter hearts.
