3 Ingredient Cashew Cookies

Legit magic. It’s the only cookie recipe you’ll ever need, they are soft and buttery and delicious and so easy to make. It works with peanut butter and cashew butter.

But it doesn’t stop there. I wasn’t lying when I said I don’t use any other cookie recipe because nothing can top this formula. All I do is pimp out this basic recipe by using different nut butters, adding drizzles, adding fillings and toppings and spices and choc chips, you name it.

3 Ingredient Cashew Cookies

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 cup cashew butter OR smooth peanut butter
  • 1 tsp pure monk fruit powder*
  • 1 egg
METHOD
  1. Preheat the oven to 160℃ and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. In a large bowl and using a wooden spoon, combine cashew butter, pure monk fruit powder and egg. You may wish to use your hands if it is not combining properly.
  3. Using your hands, carefully shape into cookies (using about 1 tbsp of dough per cookie) and place on the prepared tray. Use a fork to imprint the cookie.
  4. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes. Leave to cool completely before removing from the tray. They will be crumbly straight out of the oven.
 
Notes
  • Pure monk fruit powder is a sugar-free sweetener (read more about what monk fruit is and where to get it here), not to be confused with “monk fruit sweetener” which is actually an erythritol based sweetener. 
  • The use of pure monk fruit powder in this recipe is what makes it low-carb and/or keto friendly. If this is not a worry for you, the best substitution is coconut sugar which can be used in the same quantity as erythritol based sweetener. Please know that the use of coconut sugar takes away the sugar-free status of this recipe and may alter the colour of the finished product.

  • This recipe works with any nut butter.
