simple, delicious cashew nut butter bread

from happyhealthybalance: Cashew Nut Butter Bread Recipe

I made this few times.
  1. The batter is not thick; it is very pourable.
  2. I recommend making it with the 1T of honey as written as it had an impact on my rise/texture. It was still good with a few drops of liquid sucralose/stevia but the texture with the honey seemed more like regular bread.
  3. I made with almond butter and it was good but I personally like the cashew butter loaf better. The Artisana almond butter is not as smooth as the Artisana cashew butter
  4. I also recommend baking at 325 degrees rather than 350.
  5. For a "normal" size/height loaf I recommend making 1 and 1/2 of the recipe. I have not done this yet but it seems like that amount of batter would make a loaf big enough for a sandwich.
  6. I had read that sometimes adding protein powder helps nut based breads rise. I tried this and it made this bread too dry. The outcome of that variation was sliced very thin and baked at a low temp and they turned out like melba toast.....not bad.
  7. Because of how the crust forms and the inside stays springy, I think this recipe would make great waffles.

1 cup cashew nut butter
5 eggs
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon honey
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon sea salt

  1. In a food processor pulse ingredients together till very smooth
  2. Transfer batter to a loaf baking dish that has been lightly sprayed with olive oil
  3. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes
  4. Let cool
  5. Enjoy!

Kudos to the Healthy Happy Balance website for this recipe!

Try it. I would love to read your experiences with this recipe.

Did they list the nutritional values? I always hesitate to use cashews because of the carbs. But, I'd like too. I've seen ice cream sandwiches made with it.

I'm also a fan of this bread. I make my own cashew butter, then with whatever is leftover, I make cashew butter sandwiches. Not something I eat everyday because of the carbs, but I do like it. I also like making my own almond butter.

I agree with replay, I have made it also with almond butter but prefer the cashew butter. I want to try half cashew butter and half almond butter at some point though.
