Flourless Oatmeal Cashew Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Scroll down to content

After sipping a nice warm mug of hot chocolate on this nice warm muggy California morning, I decided I want to go back to my cookie-hot chocolate diet and that I needed some cookies on hand in order to do so. I took to Pinterest and immediately found this recipe in my feed. I’m not gluten or dairy-free so none of that was important to me, but I liked the idea of simple ingredients used in the Meaningful Eats recipe. The original recipe called for almond butter. I had a tub of cashew butter I got as a present about a year ago that I decided I needed to get rid of so I went with cashew butter instead.

ingredients.

  • 2/3 c. gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 c. cashew butter
  • 2/3 c. dark brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2/3 c. chocolate chips (dairy-free)

directions.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spray with cooking spray. This is an important step otherwise your cookies will stick.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the oats, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Stir to combine.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the cashew butter, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla until smooth, about 2 minutes.
  4. With the mixer on low, slowly add the oat mixture. Mix until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips. The dough will be very sticky!
  5. Scoop rounds of dough onto the prepared cookie sheet. I got 12 cookies out of this recipe but they were very large cookies. You could easily get 24 smaller cookies. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes. Cool 2 minutes before removing from the cookie sheet. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

For a “healthy” cookie, this was a decent recipe. You almost can’t even tell it’s not a traditional cookie but for the texture. It’s chewy but flimsy. It would mold to an uneven surface if given the chance. I stuck the cookies in the freezer which helps to stiffen them up and I enjoy them right out of the freezer. They are perfect for breakfast, in my opinion!
