It took me 2 tries to get this one right, but I am so glad I did!  These healthy cookies are vegan, gluten free AND grain free!  I wanted to eat the batter straight from the food processor. Okay, well maybe I did eat some of it haha!

You can easily make your own cashew butter as well.  I show you how in this video tutorial.

  1. I made these last night, YUMMY! The only thing I would do differently is actually press them down with a fork like you do on old fashioned peanut butter cookies. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
    1. Yes you can. I have had many readers do that with success. I just like the neutral flavor and buttery texture of the cashew butter. :)
