Flourless Cashew Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

AS AN AMAZON ASSOCIATE I EARN FROM QUALIFYING PURCHASES

If you're looking a super quick and easy cookie recipe that is flourless and paleo-friendly, this is the recipe for you! 7 ingredients, one bowl, one dozen cookies to fix that cookie craving!

This weekend was surprisingly really low-key and I enjoyed every minute of it since I’ll be pretty much slammed the rest of the month. I leave on Tuesday for Paris for the most random but amazing trip to date this year. I’m representing the USA in a recipe contest that I’m a finalist for!! I will be cooking my recipe in front of a panel of judges and there are five other countries represented at this competition. Sweden, Ireland, Canada, Japan, and Chile! Wish me luck because if I win, the grand prize is a 6 night, 7 day trip to Chile for two to visit the Cono Sur Vineyards and Winery! Definitely follow my quick jaunt in Paris via Instagram and Snapchat! Gina is coming with me as my guest (since sadly Jason can’t come) and will be doing the Snapchat duties when I’m cooking at the competition! Eek, it’s going to be so much fun. I’ve never been to Paris before so I’m really excited we’ll have three days to eat all the croissants we can handle ;)

We caught the new James Bond movie, Spectre this weekend. I love all the James Bond movies. So much action and suspense and I have been awaiting the arrival of this new one since we saw Skyfall two years ago. It did not disappoint and I loved Lea Seydoux as the new Bond girl in this. She’s so pretty and classy! Definitely recommend catching this if you have time :) since we have a puppy now and we’re up at the crack of dawn so we went to the 10am showing…crazy, right?

If you’re looking for a super easy cookie recipe for when the craving hits, this is flourless cashew butter chocolate chip cookie recipe for you. I made a batch of the cashew butter flavor and a batch of almond butter flavor for Jason to take on his fishing trip this past June (haha and I’m just now sharing the recipe…oops) and they were a hit! You can interchange the nut butters and it will work :) the almond butter dough is a bit more crumbly than the cashew butter one so I had to squeeze the dough between my hands, using body heat to kind of mold it together.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar*
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup cashew butter (or almond butter or your favorite nut butter - see note below)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2/3 cup dairy-free mini chocolate chips*

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together coconut sugar and egg until incorporated. Add in the cashew butter, baking soda, vanilla extract, and salt. Mix with a spatula or wooden spoon until batter comes together. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop dough and roll into a ball then place on baking sheet.
  • Bake for 10 minutes and let cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Notes

If you don't want to make this a paleo-friendly recipe, you can substitute granulated sugar for the coconut sugar and peanut butter for the cashew or almond butter. Also, you can use regular chocolate chips instead of dairy-free chocolate chips if you aren't concerned about dairy intolerances or making this paleo-friendly.

Finally! These are the best chocolate chip cookies I've made! And they don't make me feel like crap! I wonder how many calories they are? A LOT I'm sure but at least it's "good fat" and low glycemic sugar. I am so grateful for this recipe. I'll never make any other chocolate chip cookie recipe again. For those wondering, they don't taste like cashew in my opinion. They came out soft, not hard and crunchy, and not overly sweet. I used chocolove brand chips. The batter didn't taste good but the cookies are perfect.

Hi! Can i substitute cashew butter with unsalted/salted butter?

No, you would completely lose the flavor of this cookie (you'd be making a butter chocolate chip cookie) and it does not have the binding qualities as the cashew butter.

I didn't know flour free could look so fluffy!! I'm going to give these a try ASAP!

Are you serious?

Is your friend serious! She made a "held hostage on a boat" joke the night of the worst terrorist attach in years. You should be ashamed of yourselves and you're pretty awful people.

We didn't even know what was really fully going on at that point. I don't believe my friend meant any of that intentionally. Sure, poor word choice on her part but we were told we couldn't get off the boat for an indefinite amount of time so we really didn't have a lot of knowledge of what was going on. Thanks for your concern...I'm thankful for our safety and I ask you to keep France in your thoughts and prayers.
