  1. Hi! Thanks for sharing this recipe! I swapped raw cashew butter with raw almond butter and came out fantastic!!
  2. Looks great, will have to try it! How do you make cashew butter - do you soak the cashews first? Do you use food processor or a blender? Thanks!
  3. Just remember, they are probably 1000 calories each! So if you don't have siliac's, there is no reason at all to substitute cashews for flour! Unless you just want to add a ton of calories
    1. I stopped counting calories when I quit processed foods. I lost weight without trying and I doubt one cookie is 1000 calories. That is pretty extreme.
  4. Finally made these! Everyone liked them, even my daughter who claims not to like cashews! I will flatten slightly next time :)
  5. Absolutely loved these!! Shared this with my mom and brother and they loved it. My dad was wondering what the calorie count is roughly for each one?
    1. So glad you liked them! I am not sure the calorie count. You may be able to figure out a rough estimate on www.caloriecount.com

  6. Not sure why my message was posted twice and incomplete. :/ Whst I said was if I wasn't careful my husband would have none to try when he gets home. These are delicious! Another fabulous recipe, Melissa. Thanks!
  7. Ok, what did I do wrong? Puréed the cashews (used about 1.5 cups cashews and .5 walnuts) which made a nice butter. When I mixed in the syrup, salt and vanilla though and started to purée, it formed a glue. The liquid separated from the nut mixture and literally formed a taffy. What did I do wrong?
    1. I would guess your machine got too hot and everything liquified. Either let the machine cool down and just pulse the rest or hand mix everything after making the butter.
  8. Oh my goodness, these are so good! Just made my first batch with almond butter and peanut butter and they turned out amazing! Favorite healthy cookie recipe by far! Thanks for sharing!
  9. I made these with Sunflower Seed Butter. They turned out horrible. They never actually turned into a "cookie". It was more like fudge. I even put them in the fridge before touching them to cool them. Also, my family wouldn't touch them. I have made flourless cookies with cashew butter before and they were good. But Sunflower butter? Not so much.
    1. Really? I am sorry they didn't turn out with the sunflower butter. :( Did you let them cool completely before removing from the baking rack? Did you use homemade or store bought sunflower butter?
