  2. In large bowl, beat brown sugar, softened butter and cashew butter with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla until blended. Stir in flour mixture until just blended. Spread batter evenly in pan. Sprinkle chocolate chips and cashews over top; press lightly into batter.

Tips
  • Roasted or raw, salt or no salt, creamy or crunchy—cashew butters do vary! We tested this recipe with unsalted roasted creamy cashew butter. Feel free to pick your favorite to try in this recipe.
  • The secret for cutting bars easily is to line the pan with heavy-duty or nonstick foil. When it is time to cut the bars, just lift the baked bar with the foil out of the pan, and cut. This also makes cleanup extra easy.
