Watch How To Make Them Here
These cookies are super easy and quick to make. They will serve you well when you feel a sweet craving but don't want to sacrifice your skin - there is no flour, butter or refined sugar, i.e. the ingredients that can wreak havoc on your skin.

Cashew Butter Cookies (makes 12)
2 tbsp coconut palm sugar
1 cup cashew butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Preheat the oven to 175°C/350°F and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
Mix together the coconut palm sugar and the cashew butter in a bowl, making sure they are well combined. Measure in the vanilla extract and add the egg, again mixing until well combined.
In a separate bowl, measure out the cinnamon, baking soda and salt and mix together. Add this mixture to the wet ingredients and mix together to form a smooth paste. Add raisins at this stage if using.
Form small balls (approx. 1 tbsp of dough) on the baking tray and lightly press the tops of the balls to flatten to avoid peaks burning in the oven. Bake for 8-10 minutes, and enjoy!
These can be stored in the refrigerator for 2-3 days, well-sealed.
