Cashew Chip Cookies

Serves: 8

Happy Monday Fit Friends! I hope you had a great weekend! The weather here in the east was so beautiful! It actually felt like true summer weather, finally! The weekend was pretty low key. The boyfriend and I saw Dark Knight this weekend! I highly recommend you see it if you haven’t already! It was excellent! But make sure you pack some snacks because it is 3 hours!!! I couldn’t believe it was so long, but the time flew by! One healthy snack you might like to pack is one of these delicious cashew chip cookies! They are 100% healthy and packed with protein, healthy fats and some carbs! They are a perfect treat to enjoy while watching a movie!

Fit Ingredients

  • 3/4c (192g) cashew butter
  • 2/3c (60g) vanilla protein powder
  • 1 tbs (13g) ground flax
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2tbs coconut milk
  • 1/8c (14g) raw cacao nibs (or more if you like lots!) (can sub with mini chocolate chips)
  • 2 tsp stevia (add more if you like your desserts really sweet)

*******************************************************************

  • baking sheet
  • parchment paper
  • non stick spray

*******************************************************************

Directions

Pre heat your oven to 350 degrees. Line your baking sheet with parchment paper and then spray with non stick spray. In a bowl, mix your protein powder, flax and stevia. In a second bowl mix your cashew butter, egg, vanilla and coconut milk. Add your dry ingredients into your wet. Mix well. This might take some arm power, so use those guns and mix, mix, mix until well combined! Stir in your cacao nibs. Using a tablespoon (or mini cookie scoop) divide the dough into 8 balls. Press the tops with a fork. Bake for 12 minutes.

These cookies are very big! They are the perfect snack that will keep you full, but not weigh you down! I definitely ate one (or maybe 2)…..or maybe half of them disappeared not long after they were baked! 😉

Look how big!!

  1. Cashew chip cookies look wholesome and delicious. Good blog

  2. Erin @ Happier, Healthier, More Fit Me says:

    I think I will be making these this week. Yummo!

  3. what are raw cacao nibs? i’ve seen them listed in a few recipes but i’ve never seen them in real life! thx

    • They sell them at Whole Foods, Fairway, Vitamin Shoppe, etc. They are basically raw chocolate! This is the link if you’d like to check them out: http://www.navitasnaturals.com/products/cacao/cacao-nibs.html
      They are natural, no additives, high in fiber and iron and packed with flavor! But they have a bitter taste that needs to be balanced with something sweet. So if you add them to pancakes or muffins or on top of yogurt they are TO DIE FOR!!!

  4. Ooh I HAVE to make these– cashew butter is from the food gods haha 😉 Glad to hear Batman was good, I wanna see it so bad!

    • You definitely should! You can celebrate the end of classes with a kick off to the movies with some cookies…..followed by your choice of craziness! 😉
