These brownies were an adaptation of Elana's Brownies (http://www.elanaspantry.com/brownies/) and they are oh so good. The cashew butter makes them rich and sinful while the almond extract adds a delicate touch to them. Be careful how many you consume because one batch does contain a whole jar of cashew butter!
Yield: About 12 large browines
The variations to this recipe are endless. I've tried them with almonds, sunflower seeds, and will soon try a pecan/ macadamia nut mixture. All my nuts and seeds were soaked and dehydrated before making the butter. You can definately use store-bought nut butters as well. Add ins include chocolate/ peanut butter/ toffee chips, coconut, candy, etc. Also, if you would like a plain nut butter blondie without the cocoa, just omit cocoa and reduce honey to 1/2 - 3/4 cup and extract to 1 tsp.
