This recipe happened quite by accident. A very happy yummy accident. A sweet gingerbread cashew butter spread/dip/frosting-like accident.
I won’t even bore you with what I was attempting to make. Just know that after the first set of ingredients, I knew I didn’t need to go any further. I had already created a winner.
So, we are going to just forget about the original recipe inspiration and use this sweet, creamy, delicious gingerbread goodness on everything!

If you have ever tasted Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter, then you know what this gingerbread cashew butter will taste like. OMG, I could eat that stuff by the spoonful…and I now I can eat THIS stuff by the spoonful! And you can too!
And when we make it ourselves, we control the ingredients that go in, which is always a good thing.
Put it on Everything!
This would work as a gingerbread spread, a gingerbread dip, a gingerbread frosting, even a gingerbread sauce if you melt it a bit. I’m pretty sure you will want to eat this on your toast, dip your apples in it, spread it on graham crackers, frost your cupcakes with it, put a dollop on your oatmeal, lick it from your spoon!
The possibilities are endless really.

- Place all ingredients, except non dairy milk, in a bowl and stir to combine. Add the non dairy milk 1 tbsp at a time until you reach a thin spreadable consistency.
~To make your own cashew butter, simply grind raw cashews in a food processor until you reach a "butter" consistency. You will have to stop every so often and scrape down the sides. It could take up to 8-10 minutes to reach the correct consistency. I recommend giving your food processor a break for a minute once or twice during the process if it seems to be working really hard.
