VEGAN CASHEW CHOCOLATE CHUNK COOKIES

Say hello to the most delicious cashew butter cookie recipe you’ll ever need. In all seriousness, this is by far my favourite new cookie recipe! It’s perfection. They were gone within 2 days (thanks to the hubby). All this recipe requires is a medium sized mixing bowl, something to mix with, real food ingredients, and about 25 minutes of your time.

For the base, I quickly whisked together organic gluten free spelt flour, organic coconut palm sugar, sea salt, and baking powder in a medium sized mixing bowl. I then added cashew butter, melted coconut oil, and organic pure vanilla extract and lightly beat everything together with my simple 5-speed Kitchen Aid Hand Mixer on low. I use this hand mixer for a lot of my baking! It’s easy to store, light-weight, comes in different colours, simple to use, and simple to clean. I beat the cookie dough mix together until it had a moist and slightly crumbly consistency. If you don’t have a hand mixer, that’s okay, you can mix everything together with whatever you typically use for mixing (just make sure your mixture is moist and slightly crumbly). If your mixture is too crumbly to form into balls, add a tbsp amount of water to moisten it up a bit further. Keep adding tbsp amounts of water as needed.

Lastly, with a spatula I folded in the dairy free dark chocolate chunks then began to form cookie dough balls in my hands, making sure a chocolate chunk was in each one. I also lightly pressed each cookie to flatten them a bit. You could also just roll cookie dough balls in your hands and place them on the cookie sheet then press a dark chocolate chunk into each one of them. It’s totally up to you! You could also use dark chocolate chips in this recipe instead if you desire. Once you have used up all your cookie dough mixture, transfer cookie sheet into the oven and bake for about 15 minutes and BOOM, you’ve got yourself some chocolatey cashew butter cookie perfection!

THE PERFECTION:

  • Crispy outside and tender chewy inside
  • Naturally and perfectly sweet
  • Chocolatey chunk goodness
  • Packed with healthy fats, plant protein, and fiber
  • Nourishing and satisfying
  • Simple and easy
