Can I Bake With Cashew Butter? Five Recipes that Say YES

Strawberry cheesecake bars with lots of fresh strawberries

Some people ask us if they can sub our nut butters for dairy butter. We wouldn't quite recommend subbing it one for one in, say, your grandma's sugar cookie recipe. But we would recommend checking out all the new recipes coming online that have been created specifically with nut butters in mind!

Here are five of our favorite baked goods recipes that use cashew butter for an amazingly sweet and rich flavor without refined sugar or dairy! 

Bakerita's Paleo Blondies 

Gooey, delicious, and paleo, with a vegan option! Don't skimp on the raspberries — they really take the recipe up a notch. Pro Tip? Store the leftovers in the freezer for an amazing chewy treat.

Strawberry Cheesecake Bars from Avocado Skillet 

A cool, sweet treat for a hot summer, these bars will give you all the cheesecake feels with none of the cheese. Dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan and 100% delicious.
