Maple Cashew Cookies
I’m back. I’ve been taking a little hiatus from blogging if you haven’t noticed. It’s been nice to have sometime to have sometime to think and spend time with family and decide what really matters and what I really want in life. As a result, I can’t promise I will blog as often as I used to, but I will try to post more than I have been of late.
Anyway, to kick this off and celebrate my return to blogging (because if no one else is celebrating, I am), I would post the recipe for these delicious cookies I made tonight. I’ve been trying to find something to do with my cashew butter and I also have been craving peanut butter cookies…but peanut butter hasn’t been agreeing with me. Thus, these cookies were born! They even taste very similar to peanut butter!
Don’t they look good? I promise they are even 100x better than they look!
Maple Cashew Cookies
from Ari’s kitchen
Recipe adapted from 101 Cookbooks- Peanut Butter Cookies
Flour idea from: The Whole Life Nutrition Kitchen’s Peanut Butter Cookies
- 1 c. sorghum flour
- 1/2 t. baking soda
- 1/4 + 1/8 t. sea salt
- 1/4 t. xanthun gum
- 1/2 c. cashew butter
- 1/2 c. maple syrup
- 2 T + 2 t. melted (measure before melting) earth balance or butter or oil
- 1 t. vanilla
Pre-heat the oven for 350. Mix the wet ingredients. Add the dry ingredients. Mix again.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Roll into balls and flatten carefully with your hand and then even more carefully with a fork to make the fork prints. To make this easier and to give it a contrast in flavors (think sweet and salty), dip your fork in salt between cookies. (If you can’t get the salt to stick, just try flatting the cookies without salt…the greasiness will help the salt stick to the other cookies.)
Bake for 10-11 minutes but no longer, as they will get too hard. Let them cool for about 5 minutes on the cookie sheet and then remove to a cooling rack.
Enjoy with a nice cold glass of your favorite milk! (My current favorite: almond!)
I got 14 pretty large/ decent size cookies out of this recipe. Double if desired.
