maple cashew butter with oats + goji berries.

Maple Cashew Cream 1My mission to find awesome, fueling breakfast options continues. One can only eat so many Macrobars, amiright? (Who am I kidding. I would eat Macrobars 5 times a day if I thought I could get away with it nutritionally.) 

[Of late, the Blueberry Lemon Breakfast Bowl and 'Honey' Nut Granola have gone up on the blog, and I have plans soon to share with you the best way to eat sweet potatoes for breakfast.] 

In any case, varied, fueling morning meals are key to energized, happy mood days. Truly, I was looking for a reason to make homemade cashew butter, and because it felt like a more adult way to consume it than straight from the blender, this creamy delicious mixture ended up atop a pile of gluten-free oats with a touch of nutmeg and some goji berries.

The trick is to soak the cashews briefly to get them soft enough to blend. A Vitamix may be your best friend in this step, but a regular food processor will do, too. For extra creaminess, soak your cashews overnight.

Adjust maple syrup and gojis to taste. 

Store extra cashew butter in the fridge.

You are a breakfast professional. :)
