Cashew Nut Cookies

Makes approx 18 - 20
by Tenina Holder

I had a fit of late night baking, as I have been a little slack in the new recipe department (on here...been manic elsewhere!) and this is the rather delicious result. I had everthing on hand and I have to say almost any nut or seed would suffice, but don’t take my word for it, give them a whirl.

Happy Baking.




Place cashews onto a paper lined tray and into a cold oven set to 200°C. Toast for 10 minutes. Remove nuts from oven and cool slightly. Reduce oven temperature to 170°C.


Place 250g of the roasted cashews into TM bowl and blend 30 sec/speed 10 stopping to scrape down sides of bowl as needed.


Add sugar and honey and bend 10 sec/speed 8.


Add egg, baking powder, vanilla and salt and blend 10 sec/speed 8.


Add remaining cashews and coconut. Blend 6 sec/speed 6.


Stir cherries or craisins through using your spatula. Scrape mixture out of the TM bowl and place into the fridge for 10-15 minutes.


Scoop mixture into tablespoon sized balls onto a lined tray approximately 10-12 cm apart.


Bake 10 minutes until golden and fragrant. Cool on baking tray before transferring to wire rack.


I added 50g cacao nibs with the cherries, you could add the same amount of chocolate chips as desired.
