How This Nourishes Your Body
Vegan/Paleo Flourless Cashew Cookies
Time for Cashew Cookies.
Here is my day: It is -3 outside, snow falling down, tons of work to do, housework pilling up, and all I want to do is make cookies. Story of my life. This weather just puts me into the holiday spirit, which in my world means baking. So much baking.
As always, I love baking things that I do not have to feel bad about enjoying. These cookies are a wonderful creation that taste like cake batter if you ask me.
As always, they are grain free, gluten free, dairy free, and sweetened with raw honey. Cookies made with flour and sugar spike your blood sugar, feed yeast and bad bacteria in the body, stores as fat, and makes you crave more and more. These do not do any of that nonsense. In fact, this cookie is filled with metabolism boosting healthy fats and wonderful vitamins and minerals that will satisfy you and your sweet tooth.
Notes for Cashew Cookies
- You can add cacao/cocoa if you want to make a chocolate version.
- You can also take the dough, roll it into balls and freeze them for a raw cookie dough version that also tastes amazing! Try both out when making the batter!
1. Pulse nuts in a blender until they are broken down in to a flour like form
2. Place coconut oil, honey, vanilla, and cinnamon in a small pot and heat over low heat until fully melted and mixed.
3. Mix the liquid with the nut flour and hand mix until batter forms. You may need to add one teaspoon of water at a time to make all of the flour wet and look like below. It should not be runny or thin but rather more like a paste. sure
4. Either roll in balls and freeze OR place those balls on a baking sheet, flatten them down into a cookie shape, and Bake in the over at 350 for 12-15 minutes. Let cool before eating to keep from falling apart.
