Cashew butter, ginger and honey sandwich, Honest Fare by Gabrielle Arnold

Peanut butter and honey sandwiches have always been a favorite of mine. Comfort food I guess. But, these days I tend to keep more almond and cashew butter around the house so now cashew butter and honey sandwiches are my latest thing. The other day I added some fresh ginger to the mix, and, while it may not look like a huge whoop, this sandwich is pretty killer. I really want you guys to try this!

If you haven’t had cashew butter, I definitely recommend trying it. It has a much creamier and smoother texture and is naturally sweeter than peanut or almond butter. It’s more expensive though. Like ten bucks for this little jar! But well worth it I think.


It tends to get more solid than most nut butters do in the fridge so you kind of have to let it sit out a minute until it gets spreadable.


I think this sammie is best with a whole-wheat peasant bread, but anything with nice texture will be great (even crackers or English muffins). The ginger will be best grated rather than chopped so you don’t have to deal with clumping and fibers. This microplane zester thingie is one of the most handy kitchen tools I have and it’s perfect for quickly grating up fresh ginger. A cheese grater will also do the trick.


The spicy ginger is fabulous with the creamy cashew butter. Then you drizzle some honey all over it…and it’s a wrap.


I love when simple is so good.

Coop/prep time: about 3 minutes! Substitute with peanut or almond butter if you prefer.

You need:

  • Whole wheat bread
  • Honey
  • Cashew butter
  • Fresh ginger


  1. Lightly toast whole wheat bread. Then, while still warm, spread cashew butter on bread. Set aside.
  2. Grate some fresh ginger (about a teaspoon per sandwich depending on how spicy you like it) and evenly spread across cashew butter. Drizzle generously with honey and enjoy!

    I LOVE cashew butter but have never thought of adding fresh ginger to a nut butter sandwich. This sounds wicked good!

    I have never tried cashew butter…the price has always scared me away. This sandwich sounds & looks delish. I also use a microplane to grate ginger.

    This looks amazing! I will definitely have to give it a try. I love the idea of just grating the ginger right on. Why not?!?

    Had this for breakfast this morning (although I used natural peanut butter instead). Really good–never would’ve thought of adding the ginger! Now I’m on the lookout for cashew butter…

    Yes, isn’t that ginger zing is so nice!
    Try a health food store. I know Whole Foods usually has it.

    Your photos are fantastic. I would love to learn how you take photos like these. If you have a moment to email me, that would be great :) Btw, I recently made a really nice almond butter pita pocket – check it out http://cuceesprouts.com/2010/09/almond-butter-pear-honey-pocket/
