You will never guess these cookies are flourless with no added sugar!


  • 1 cup cashew butter (see notes)
  • 5 medjool dates (pits removed and soaked in water for 30 minutes)
  • 2 T water
  • 1 tsp ground vanilla beans or vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Drain the dates in the water.
  3. In a small blender combine the dates, sea salt and 2 T new water and mix until a caramel starts to form. If you need to add a little extra water, that is okay.
  4. In a food processor , mix the cashew butter, vanilla and baking powder together.
  5. Add the caramel to the cashew butter mixture and pulse a few times.
  6. Lastly add the chocolate chips and pulse a few more times.
  7. Drop cookies onto a lined baking sheet . I used a cookie scoop and got 9 cookies.
  8. Bake for 9-10 minutes.
  9. Wait until the cookies are completely cooled before removing them from the baking sheet.
  10. Store cookies in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. You can also freeze them for longer.


Recipe Notes

**You can buy cashew butter at the store, but you can also make it yourself in a food processor or high powered blender. Just take 2 cups raw cashew pieces and blend them for 5 minutes. Feel free to use another nut butter or even sunflower butter in place of the cashew butter, but keep in mind it may alter the flavor slightly.
