Cooking with Cashew Butter Recipes

1. Creamy Cashew Butter Chicken

Easy dinners debatably define my life. I love finding unique recipes like this butter chicken to add to my repertoire. 

This recipe calls for raw cashews to cream, but you can sub in cashew butter and water instead.

The butter chicken is loaded with spices from the creamy cashew masala sauce. 

The best part? It’s table ready in about a half-hour. 

2. Cashew Butter Cookies

I love peanut butter cookies, but not as much as cashew butter cookies. 

Because cashew butter is so creamy, these cookies are silky and undeniably delicious! 

This recipe is naturally gluten-free and is made with just six ingredients. Simple, sweet, and rich are three words you love to hear about cookies!

3. Homemade Cashew Butter

Tired of high shelf prices of natural cashew butter? Go ahead and make your own!

This cashew butter is creamy, simple, and totally natural. Added spices elevate the flavor of this elegant cashew butter.

4. Keto Bread

Cashew butter is an excellent base for grain-free bread. 

This sweet bread is made with just four ingredients and is deceivingly delicious!

It’s sturdy enough for spreading extra nut butter and rich enough to be dessert. 

5. Flourless Cashew Butter Brownies

Look out, boxed mix, flourless brownies are sweeping the nation!

These beautiful brownies are made with pantry staples and are nearly guilt-free.

They have the perfect balance of fudge and fluffy, and they’re decadent enough for any dessert lover.

6. 3-Ingredient Cashew Butter Mug Cake

Looking for a delightfully sinful late-night treat? Look no further!

Little bakers will be delighted to make this easy mug cake. It’s totally flourless and easily customizable.

I love this treat topped with cashews, caramel, and fudge. 

7. Cashew Butter Granola

There’s something so satisfying about homemade granola. Maybe because it’s delicious enough to be a dessert?

If you’re craving a soft, chewy granola, this recipe is perfect! Oats, coconut, cashews, and cashew butter are the bulk of this recipe. 

You’ll also use coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla for flavor and texture. 

8. Cauliflower Tacos – with Cashew Crema

Okay, is it just me or are tacos the best food ever?

If you said no, this recipe might just change your mind. These tacos are vegan, zesty, and loaded with flavor. 

The “meat” of the tacos is roasted cauliflower. But the star of the show is the creamy, spicy serrano sauce. 

9. Spicy Cashew-Butter Stir-Fry

Cashew stir-fry is one of my favorite dinners to make on a busy weeknight.

This recipe has a spicy sesame and cashew sauce. Made with rice noodles and fresh crunchy snap peas, it’s a win every day of the week!

This recipe is vegetarian, but you could easily add any protein to the vegetables.

10. No-Bake Chocolate Cashew Butter Bars

Bake sales, birthday parties, and late-night snacks rejoice! 

These easy bars are loaded with protein and are so scrumptious. Delicious creamy cashew butter and decadent dark chocolate.

Nobody is stopping you from having one for breakfast.

11. Flourless Paleo Cashew Butter Muffins

Nut butter muffins are a great way to add protein and nutrients to breakfast on the go. 

The batter for these muffins is made with just three ingredients. 

The baking powder makes these light and fluffy. The added cashews and coconut make for the perfect crunchy balance. 

They’re kid-friendly, healthy, and delicious. What’s not to love?

12. Cinnamon Cashew Butter Pancakes

Pancakes are honestly the breakfast all-star.

Cashew butter pancakes are easy to make and are gluten-free! Your whole family will love these, and you’ll adore the added health benefits.

These pancakes are freezer-friendly, so make yourself a big batch and save some for later.

13. Cashew Butter Chocolate Truffles

Truffles are one of my favorite party treats to serve.

These cashew butter truffles are perfectly rich and sweet. The nutty insides have the perfect creamy and crunchy texture. 

Use your favorite cashew butter, Rice Krispies, and try to wait for them to cool. This sweet treat is easy to make and even easier to eat!

14. Salted Caramel Cashew Butter Fudge

The holidays bring on some of my favorite sweet treats.

This fudge is creamy, nutty, and so delicious. You’re just three ingredients away from rich, creamy fudge that your family will rave over.

What are you waiting for? Grab your cashew butter, coconut oil, and maple syrup. It’s fudge time.

15. Creamy Green Pea and Cashew Butter Soup

I love green pea soup. Adding in creamy cashew butter gently lifts the flavor of this classic soup, making it all the better.

This recipe is vegan but loaded with protein. Tofu, peas, and cashew butter are pureed to make the silkiest soup. 

You can serve this hot or cold, and add spice to your preference. Any way you serve it, it’s filling and satisfying.

16. No-Bake Cashew Butter and Jelly Cheesecakes

There really isn’t a wrong way to eat cheesecake. 

Cashew butter, jelly, and creamy cheesecake are the perfect partners in crime. These are gluten-free, vegan, and no-bake.

Using coconut milk and coconut oil gives a firm cheesecake texture. The cashew butter and strawberry jelly give great flavor. Can you say yum?

17. Cashew Butter Protein Balls

Try these protein balls for a burst of energy just when you need it. 

They’re easy to make and absolutely delectable. Creamy cashew butter, oats, chia seeds, and flaxseed meal are the bulk of your ingredients.

Add in cinnamon and honey for great flavor.

You’re just a handful of ingredients away from blowing away that afternoon fog! 

18. Coffee Cashew Butter Overnight Oats

Overnight oats are the ultimate meal prep for night owls. Toss them together the night before, and you just need to warm them in the morning. 

For this recipe, you just need a few ingredients. Mix cashew butter, espresso, vanilla and cinnamon, and milk of choice. Then, stir in your oats.

They have warm flavor, easy preparation, and are a great way to start the day.

19. Creamy Cashew Turtle Pie

Looking for an easy pie that eaters of all ages will love?

This cashew turtle pie is rich, sweet, and oh-so-delicious. The filling is made with cashew butter, caramel, and cream cheese.

Layer this creamy center onto melted chocolate and top it with a chocolate drizzle. 

This is my new go-to get-together pie. Or the pie I snag a bite of every time I’m in the fridge when nobody’s looking!

20. Banana Cashew Butter Chia Seed Smoothie

Healthy smoothies don’t have to be a bore. Whether you’re looking to lose weight or just want to feel fuller longer, smoothies are in. 

This recipe is the perfect use for overripe bananas. You know, the ones in your freezer?
