December is my favorite time of year because it’s time for all things gingerbread, including this Healthy Gingerbread Cashew Butter! Cashews get roasted up and then pulsed in the food processor with molasses, spices, and coconut oil until it’s smooth and creamy. You can slather this Healthy Gingerbread Cashew Butter on toast, muffins, or wrap it up and give to friends/family for a delicious DIY holiday gift!
It’s no secret that I love all things gingerbread, I’ve shared Paleo Gingerbread Biscotti, Healthy Gingerbread Muffins, Healthy Gingerbread Breakfast Cookies and even a Whole30 Gingerbread Latte! I love the warm, cozy spices that go into gingerbread and wanted to be able to bring them to you in a healthier form.

It’s super rich and creamy, and makes everything (toast, muffins, etc) taste better. It’s also delicious when eaten straight out of the jar.
How to make Healthy Gingerbread Cashew Butter
Making gingerbread cashew butter isn’t hard at all! All you need to do is roast your cashews, allow them to cool + toss them into a food processor with your other ingredients. I had tried making nut butter in the Vitamix once but it was a huge fail. My little food processor did the trick! Even though it’s tiny.. this thing has POWER! It made seriously the creamiest, most delicious cashew butter.
Do you need to roast nuts for nut butter?
Yes, in my opinion- this is essential as it helps the oils release which allows for creamier nut butter! Plus, it doesn’t take long at all!
What I love about this recipe (in addition to it being super delish) is how EASY it was. I used NOW Foods cashews and their coconut oil to make it extra smooth + delicious. When blended with spices they were the PERFECT combo. Seriously.. you guys are going to love this! It will make your breakfast toast 100x better + could even be fun to make in a big batch and share with family/friends as a DIY holiday gift!
