Pumpkin Spice Cashew Butter

This delicious cashew butter is laced with pumpkin pie spice to create a silky-smooth spread powered by fall flavors. It only requires four ingredients and comes together in 10 minutes!

Ingredients 

  • 2 cups raw unsalted cashews
  • 1 ½ tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1 tsp coconut sugar (or substitute brown sugar)
  • 1 tbsp + 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • ¾ tsp sea salt

Instructions

  1. Add cashews to high-speed food processor or blender. Process for 5-6 minutes, scraping down the sides with a spatula as needed, until nuts start to form a crumbly paste. Add remaining ingredients and continue processing for another 5-7 minutes, until super creamy. Pour into a mason jar or air-tight tupperware container. Store refrigerated.
