Servings: 8 cookies



  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • If your cashew butter is very hard, heat it in the microwave briefly, about 15 seconds. You want it to be soft and slightly runny.
  • Combine cashew butter, monk fruit, vanilla extract, and 2 tsp almond milk (omit if your cashew butter is very runny). Add remaining ingredients and stir until a smooth, moldable cookie dough forms. If your dough seems too dry, add extra almond milk, 1 tsp at a time, until a moldable dough forms. 
  • Scoop about 1 tbsp of dough and roll into a ball. Place on baking sheet and use your fingers to slightly flatten the dough into a disc. Repeat with remaining dough.
  • Bake 10-12 minutes, until lightly browned on the edges. Cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely. The cookies will be very soft at first but firm up and become crispy as they cool.


*You may need more or less almond milk depending on the consistency of your cashew butter.
