Chunky Honey Vanilla Cashew Butter (Paleo)

           I would say that nut butters are definitely one of my whole foods weaknesses-I just love the stuff!  It is one of my go-to snacks options paired with a banana, in a smoothie, or my personal favorite- on a spoon!

          I’ll be honest, I try using portion control with my measuring spoons, but before I know it, I am eating right out of the jar.  Knowing that, I will really have tap into some serious will power with this recipe in the house.  Its crunchy and flavorful with just the right amount of sweetness!
