How to Make Homemade Whole30 + Keto Cashew Butter

You’re not going to believe how easy this is to make homemade!

You start by roasting the cashews. This will intensify their flavor, and give them a golden color. After roasting, put the warm cashews right in the food processor with some salt. The heat helps the nuts break down even faster.

Scrape it down once or twice while blending, then 20 minutes later, and you have homemade cashew butter!

Are Cashews Keto?

Cashews are keto in small amounts. They do have a higher carb count than almonds and pecans. The serving size for this butter is 2 tablespoons, perfect amount for a snack. That is only 5 carbs.

If you want an even lower carb nut butter, try my homemade almond butter or pecan butter!
