  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Mix together cashew butter, dried cranberries, almonds, coconut oil, egg, dates, and honey in a bowl until thoroughly incorporated. Place spoonfuls of mixture onto a nonstick baking sheet.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until cookies smell toasted, about 12 minutes. Allow to cool and harden.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • To save time, instead of chopping the dates, try to find date loaves in your supermarket in the Middle Eastern section or at a market that carries such ingredients. These loaves are often prepackaged minced dates that look like a small brick (?!) but are of course awesomely easy to use. Check ingredients carefully for added sugar or corn syrup from American brands. I try to keep a couple of these in the cupboard, and use tablespoons of them to add sweetness to any baked good that I am trying to make paleo.

So easy to make and super tasty! I substituted chopped walnuts for the almonds because that's all I had on hand. My husband requested a second batch and said he liked how soft and moist they wer...

These are simple to make and taste great. I dipped mine in some almond milk. They were a little crumbly but they were moist and tasty. Way better than most flourless cookie options.

I'm not on a paleo diet but had some cashew butter to use. Subbed coconut for cranberries. My one year old twins loved them. Good healthy snack.

AMAZING! I did make some modifications: I left out cranberries and honey- sprinkled a few dark chocolate chips on top- and added a splash of vanilla and a shake of cinnamon- instead of 2Tblspoon...

So tasty and filing! Easy to over bake them as the color does not change much so check the bottoms when you check the tops as they are baking. I also add chocolate chips and coconut flakes so I...
