These are gluten free, vegan and grain free.  They could even be paleo approved if you make them with almond butter instead of peanut butter.

I make my own cashew butter.  Here is a quick video on how to make it.

  1. I love so many of your recipes, but this one stole my heart. Chocolate and peanut butter! You have been a huge influence in my transition into clean eating and I thank you for sharing your recipes, Melissa.
  2. These were so yummy! My chocolate didn't really get runny so I ended up having to spread it on and they turned out pretty ugly... But still delicious! I will also be making the cashew butter base on its own because WOW it is tasty! Thanks!
  3. Is there something unique that the cashew butter adds? Why not all peanut butter? I'm just curious because I haven't used cashew butter much.
    1. Cashew butter creates a buttery texture. You can do all peanut if you like, but I think cashew butter better mimics the taste of shortbread in the real cookies. :)
