What I Eat Wednesday: Homemade Cashew Butter

Aaron and I love nuts and nut butters.  We always buy some types of nuts on our weekly grocery trips.  We really like cashew butter, but it can definitely add up if you buy the pre-made stuff.  Aaron decided to make some homemade cashew butter a few weeks ago.  It was delicious!  We made some last night so that I could write about it today. 🙂  Enjoy!

Recipe Notes from For the Love of Running Kitchen: This is a super easy recipe that Aaron made up. You can add and experiment with ingredients.  We definitely have! We’ve added flax and I’m sure cinnamon would be delicious in this.  Let me know your thoughts!
