First, find your food processor and plug that bad boy in immediately. This quaint kitchen appliance will be doing most of the heavy lifting in this recipe.
Then, once that baby is all ready and raring to go, toss in a small amount of those cashews, and hit the 'Pulse' mode until the contents are finely ground. You'll want these cashews for later, so feel free to remove them from the processor and place them to the side for the time being.
Then, in a newly empty food processor, toss in your sunflower seeds, along with the remaining cashews. With these two, you'll want to hit the 'Pulse' mode again, but only until they are both coarse - not fine, like a powder.
At this point, you'll want to grab your dates and throw them in the mixture and hit 'Pulse' again until everything seems to be expertly combined with one another. You can repeat this process with the salt, vanilla extract, syrup, and almond butter, as well. Just make sure that, by the end of it, the entire blend has a really smooth consistency.
After you feel it's reached peak smoothness, you can add you cannabis-infused butter (or oil) into the mix, and blend it all together. When you feel like the infused butter (or oil) couldn't be more intertwined with the previously blended mixture, you can start forming these little "nugs" into whatever size you'd like.
Personally, I always aim for a golf ball size, that way, they can easily be enjoyed without any overwhelming potency that may otherwise leave you too stoned to be energized. It's really all about finding a happy medium at this point in the recipe.
When you've rolled out your nugs, you have the option to throw a little topping on them, should you so choose. A couple topping suggestions that work well with this mix are dark chocolate chips, coconut, or even dried fruit - it's really up to you. Personally, I'd suggest using the previously pulsed cashews as show-stopping topper.
Whether your nugs are topped with extra add-ons or left completely bare, this is the time where you'd place the final product in the freezer to firm up. Once they do, you can gently pull them out of their frozen corridor, and dig in.
