According to wheat eaters these “do not taste healthy”- in a good way. The light, fluffiness of these cookies mixed with that soft, thick, and chewy cookie texture we all know and love is AMazing! Sweetened with 1/4 c maple syrup (paleo, grain free, refined sugar free).
I have cashew cookies comin’ at you! This recipe has been in the works for awhile now and I am loving the way they finally turned out! Good things come in small packages and these, my friend, are goood. Soft, chewy, thick, and fluffy, but have a dense chewy, pull-apart-perfect-wanna-go-back-for-more-cookie texture and flavor!
I have been on a major cashew butter swing this month! And thanks to my favorite Traders Joe’s cashew butter (not sponsored, just love), these cashew cookies were brought to life with rich nutty and sweet flavor! I have been tweaking this recipe for awhile now; ya know, trying to get it just right. 🙂 That buttery texture, stunning flavor, and all time favorite, soft cookie texture! I think I got it. I hope you love them!
Cashew Cookie Cravings!
Whether or not it’s because of the Christmas season, the fact is, I have been craving cookies… like serious cookie cravings!!! And the only way to solve a problem like that is making a few batches of my favorite cookies, taste testing them with my Mom, and then trying out some more new recipes. 🙂 The only cure for the pain and emptiness in my tummy: cashew cookies. These cookies went incredibly fast! Big family + cashew cookies = an empty cookie jar by mid-day.
You’re going to fall in love with the light fluffiness of these cookies! That mixed with that soft, thick, and chewy cookie texture we all know and love is addicting. These cookies are incredibly healthy, coming in at a low sugar count of just 1/4 cup of maple syrup per batch! That’s 9 cookies with just 1/4 cup of sugar… and you WOULD NEVER KNOW IT. Dead serious, people. I served these to all my wheat eating relatives, and their direct quote was, “I would never know these are paleo!”. That’s always a win! When I can make healthy taste legit; that’s happiness.
