    1. I know readers that have used sunflower butter with success, so I am going to guess soy butter should work too
  1. this is hands down the worst recipe i've ever tried. i should have known that there was nothing to "hold" the cookies together, and in fact, there's nothing to hold the cookies together. they're just a pile of mess on the cookie sheet. do not waste your time. terrible terrible recipe. i would give negative stars if i could.
    1. I'm sorry it didn't work out for you. :( It has a lot of positive reviews. Did you let the cookies cool before handling them? They will crumble if still warm, but they do firm up nicely. Also, do you think the dough could have been over-mixed? That may cause them to spread too much. Did you follow the recipe exact?
    2. I know your comment was a while back, but I was shocked to read it. These cookies are so delicious, I make them often and recommend to friends as well. Not once have I ever had them turn out like you described. Can't help but wonder if you did something wrong.
    3. I have made this recipe many times, and my family and friends love them. They are slightly more fragile if you eat them hot (but we don't mind), but they do firm up once they cool. Yes, the texture is slightly different from one containing flour, egg, butter, etc - but its a minor difference that doesn't stop us from enjoying a treat made with wholesome ingredients. This is one of our favorites!
  2. Hi Melissa. I tried this today. I used raw cashews and when processing I just got powder, not butter consistency. So I added some coconut oil. They taste amazing but a bit crumbly although they are now completely cool. I would like to try them again, any suggestions ? Thank You
    1. It looks like a powder before it turns into cashew butter. You just need to keep blending a little longer. :) Sorry they crumbled on you. :(
  3. I don't know if homemade cashew butter is better but I don't like the flavour of these. They taste ashy. It is an interesting concept though. Not sure how yours look like normal cookies as mine are just puffs, but I will gladly try these again with peanut butter.
    1. I'm sorry you didn't like them with the cashew butter. They should also be good with peanut butter if you try again.
