Cookies and (nut) milk is not just for kids! My Cashew Butter Cookies are the perfect afternoon treat no matter what age you are. They are gluten-free, refined sugar-free and their is a vegan option too so everyone wins!

Cooking time 20 minutes, makes 10-12 cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup coconut flour
  • 2-3 tbsp cashew butter
  • 2-3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil (melted)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg OR 1 mushed banana (for the vegan option)

Method

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Mix the coconut flour, baking powder and cinnamon together in a mixing bowl.
  3. Mix the cashew butter, maple syrup, melted coconut oil, vanilla essence and beaten egg/mushed banana together in a separate bowl until well combined.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients mixing bowl and mix until well combined.
  5. Line a baking tray with baking paper or coconut oil.
  6. Spoon out the batter into tablespoon sizes onto the baking tray – try get even sizes and make sure they are more flat than round.
  7. Tip: Roll the batter  into individual balls with your hands, put them on the baking tray and flatten them a bit to get them all the same size.
  8. Bake for 15-20 minutes.
  9. Enjoy with some cool almond/coconut milk!

This will make about 10-12 medium sized cookies, I put dates on top for a little extra sweet treat!
