Did you know that cashews are a legume and not a nut? I had no idea. Another interesting fact about cashews is that they have a lower fact content than most other nuts. I love how soaked cashews blended to make the most the delicious and creamy sauces, pudding and smoothies.
In this recipe we are using cashew butter to replace the usual fat used in baking. You can buy cashew butter ready made or make your own. If you are using plain cashew butter, add 1/2 tsp vanilla to the recipe.
If you’re not a big fan of dried cranberries, feel free to add raisins, chopped dates or chocolate chips instead.
