This nut butter is a take on a cherry ripe chocolate bar. We used berries instead of cherries because they are cheaper, more nutritionally dense and easily accessible thanks to the frozen kind. This nut butter has a cashew base with berries, coconut and raw cacao to make it taste like a cherry ripe. Cashews are high in protein, berries are a low sugar fruit, coconuts are loaded with good fats and raw cacao is a superfood – how’s that for a nutritious addition to your toast!
1 cup cashews
2 cups desiccated coconut
1.5 cups berries (fresh or defrosted frozen berries)
1/3 cup raw cacao
2 tablespoons maple syrup/honey/rice malt/coconut sugar/4-6 Medjool dates
