Cashew Butter Breakfast Cookie Recipe

Cashew Butter Breakfast Cookie Recipe

This whole food Cashew Butter Breakfast Cookie Recipe are healthy and delicious. They only require 3 ingredients. I have also included optional ingredients for these cashew butter cookies. You will love this recipe for cashew cookies.

These gluten free vegan cashew butter cookies are basically just cashews and coconut flour. I also like to add a little zero calorie stevia for a sweeter taste. The second optional ingredient is butter flavored extract.

Just add 1/2 tsp of any vegan brand butter extract to the cashew butter. It makes these plant cookies taste like cake batter. However you can leave this out of cashew butter cookies. These cookies are the perfect simple meal plan recipe. You can pack them for breakfast, snack, or dessert.

Furthermore you can replace it with vanilla extract or even almond extract in this recipe for cashew cookies. My suggestion is butter extract because it tastes delicious. Links to vegan brand here and below.

Coconut flour isn’t like other types of flour. It’s made from straight coconut flesh. It’s low in carbs yet high in protein and fiber. You can substitute for almond flour in this healthy recipe if you prefer. 

This Cookie Recipe is whole food plant based.

Coconut flour is gluten free, contains healthy fats, and is delicious! Cashew butter is also gluten free with healthy fats. They’re perfect ingredients for cashew butter cookies.

It’s very easy to make this cashew butter. Just soak cashews in water for a minimum of 4 hours. Drain them and add to a food processor. It’s a great ingredient for vegan breakfast recipes.

Add about one tbsp of water into the blender with cashews. Start to process or blend. Add extract if you are using any. Blend some more until smooth. 

I had to scrape the sides a few times to get it perfect. Next, combine cashew butter and coconut flour in a large mixing bowl. Manually kneed and mash into recipe for cashew cookies dough. 

At this point add the stevia if you are going to use it. Then kneed and mash up again. Roll into a large cookie dough ball. Your recipe for cashew cookies is almost done.

Cashew butter breakfast cookies are a plant based food. Furthermore cashew butter cookies are low in carbohydrates. 

They are gluten free, vegan, and paleo.
