Cashew Butter Cookies Recipe

These nutty morsels have everything you love about the peanut butter version—like a tender crumb and a touch of sweetness—but we made this batch gluten-free, swapped in coconut oil for butter, and added honey instead of refined sugar. Tote them to your holiday cookie swap, put a plate in the office kitchen, or just stash in the freezer for an indulgent night (or two).

Cashew Butter Cookies

Yield: 22 to 24 cookies
Active Time:


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Whisk gluten-free flour, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a large bowl. Add cashew butter, honey, coconut oil, and vanilla extract to another large bowl and pour in dry ingredients; stir until no trace of flour remains. Scoop dough into your hands using a 1 tablespoon measuring spoon and roll into small rounds. Place on sheet tray 2-inches apart. Spray back of fork with cooking spray, then flatten balls halfway down in a cross-hatch pattern. Bake 9 to 12 minutes on middle rack, or until edges are slightly golden. Cool 5 minutes before serving.
