Seedy Hemp Cashew Butter

I’m obsessed with nut butter, more so peanut butter over all the other options. I dabble in a little almond and cashew, the latter of which is ridiculously hard to come by these days, and when you do, it tends to be over roasted, and a little bitter Definitely not worth the euros associated!

It’s been FOREVER since I made my own nut butter. I used to always make hazelnut, and sometimes pecan when I was feeling flush. Both are possibly the easiest to make it terms of the time it takes for them to blend to a super duper drippy, almost true liquid consistency.

Cashew can be a little trickier, in my experience, to achieve a creamy, drippy, consistency. Adding just a little oil makes a whole heap of difference, and the end result is just beeeeautiful. It also just requires a little more time, blending past when you think it’s ready, and so worth it for the end result.

Cashews have such a delicious natural sweetness, almost with an undertone of vanilla.

I loaded this one up with some sunflower seeds, hemp seeds and chia seeds for a little texture and all the nutritional lovely goodness that these powerful protein rich seeds have to offer.

By Serves: 1 large jar Prep Time: 20 minutes Cooking Time: 10 minutes


  • 450g raw cashews
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp light tasting olive oil or rapeseed oil
  • 2 tbsp Linwoods Hemp Seeds
  • 1 tbsp Linwoods Whole Chia Seeds
  • 1 tbsp toasted sunflower seeds



Preheat your oven to 180C (350F).


Place cashews on a baking tray and roast for 10 minutes, tossing half way through. Allow to cool on the tray for five minutes before transferring to your food processor.


Blend for 10 -15 minutes, periodically scraping down the sides when necessary, until it starts to look like a nut butter! When it does, add in the oil and salt and blend for a further 4 -5 minutes until drippy and smooth.


Add hemp seeds, chia seeds and sunflower seeds to the food processor. Pulse a few times to incorporate.


Transfer nut butter to a clean jar with a lid or a glass tub with a lid that you can seal tight.


Store in the sealed container for up to one month out of direct sunlight.
