Hi lovies!! <3 <3
Happy Wednesday afternoon! 🙂
So, as you all know, this morning, I created QUITE THE SITCH IN MY KITCH. I baked up a 5-INGREDIENT FLOURLESS ALMOND BUTTER COCOA CASHEW COOKIE storm!!!! Guys, I was speechless, I’m STILL speechless & I always will be when it comes to these babes I concocted. I honestly have such a freaking treat in store for you munchkins!!!
These babies are F-AMAZING! Basically, I’ve tried them out 2-3 times already & TODAY, I FINALLY PERFECTED THE RECIPE, ergo, it was time to share them with you babies (It’s been SO HARD to keep them from you, but I really, really wanted the recipe to be PERFECT).
BTW, I’m warning you that these babes will NOT last a day at home… You will probably DEVOUR the entire batch almost immediately. In case, for whatever INSANE reason, you don’t, you should know that these babes also freeze very well, ergo, YOU CAN ALSO DOUBLE YOUR RECIPE & SAVE SOME FOR LATAH (“Latah”, meaning, FIVE MINUTES after the first batch is READY & you devoured it while standing over your oven). Don’t lie. I know you did that, but I am not judging you. I did the exact same thing & I would be a hypocrite if I said you were crazy for doing it too.
In a nutshell, these babies are EVERYTHING. Okay, wait; let me give you a little bit more deets than simply “EVERYTHING”… I mean, it could mean so many different things, right? OKAY, so listen, these babes are:
- For all those with nut allergies, they can easily be turned into nut-free cookies if you use sunflower butter instead of almond butter!
- They are PACKED WITH PROTEIN & GOOD-FOR-YOU FATS thanks to the almond butter & the cashews! BASICALLY, NUTS FOR DAYS.
- They are just the right amount of sweet (OH & said sweetness is ALL-NATURAL! Therefore, the babes contain ZERO REFINED-SUGAR).
- UH… cacao powder. ‘NUFF SAID.
- OH &… the ingredients… SO CLEAN, SO HEALTHY & SO RAW. Listen up: I’m talking raw organic almond butter, pure organic maple syrup, Dutch-processed fair trade organic cacao powder, non-GMO baking powder & organic unsalted cashews…
THIS IS NOT NORMAL. I CANNOT CONTAIN MY EXCITEMENT. GUYS. PLEASE, do yourselves a favor. Whip these babies up – you also deserve this deliciousness!!! Before I beg you to whip them up, I might just want to tell you how to do so, RIGHT? OKAY, LET’S GO!
My loves, YOU WILL NEED (a very short list of ingredients, five, to be PRECISE):
- 1 cup of raw organic almond butter (or any other nut butter);
- ¼ cup + 1 tbsp. of pure organic maple syrup;
- 1 tbsp. of pure organic Dutch-processed fair trade cacao powder (I use Cuisine Camino);
- ¼ tsp. of non-GMO baking powder;
- 1/3 cup of organic unsalted cashews.
KAY, but how easy am I making your lives RN? Seriously!!! Like… you have ALMOST NADA to take out! OKAY, now, let’s get to the nitty-gritty of how to put these crumbly-AF beautiful babes together. YOU DOWN? LEGGO.
- Preheat your oven to 350F (You munchkins must be getting used to this, no?) & line a baking sheet with parchment paper!
- In YOUR BESTIE (In case this is the first recipe of mine that you make… WHICH MEANS, I DO NOT LIKE YOU, totz. kidding! Welcome!… BESTIE = FOOD PROCESSOR), combine all these beautiful ingredients;
- PULSE THE EFF OUT OF THEM UNTIL YOU OBTAIN A BEAUTIFULLY-TEXTURED DOUGH. If your dough don’t look like this, Houston, we got a HUGE problem.
- Form the beautiful cookie dough into balls (& take a few bites of it here & there, you know…) & place the cute little munchkins onto the lined baking sheet.
- BAKE THE BABES FOR 10 MINUTES.
- Let the babies COMPLETELY cool before removing them from the cookie sheet. Let’s be honest with each other, as we always are, nobody & I mean nobody, is making it to this step. And NO SHAME. Who really cares anyway? If your bod wants da cookie, give your bod da cookie. IT’S ALL ABOUT THAT NOURISHMENT.
- Store these munchkins in an airtight container & REFRIGERATE. Guys, let’s be logical here. If you didn’t make it past the cooling stage, a.k.a. THERE ARE NO MORE COOKIES LEFT, you ain’t making it to this one. BUT, just in case ANY of my beautiful followers have some sort of sense of control… THIS IS HOW TO BEST PRESERVE THE BABES.
OH & FOOD PORN!!!! DUH.
ENJOY LOVIES!! <3 XOXO!
