Thick, chewy, and bursting with cashews, these Vegan Cashew Butter Oat Cookies are absolutely delicious! These are the perfect alternative to peanut butter cookies!
Move on over, peanut butter cookies. We’ve got a new favorite in town. I will be the first person to say that peanut butter cookies are a near perfect creation – but will be honest though, I am definitely more of a cashew person than a peanut person when it comes down to it. And cashew butter is just so dangerously delicious. This prompted me to contemplate how a cashew butter cookie would fair against a peanut butter cookie. And so begins the battle royal of nut butter cookies!
So, a couple cookie experiments later and we have these Vegan Cashew Butter Oat Cookies! And I can report that these cookies are so dang good! I decided to add oats to the mix to make these extra hearty and chewy. And since my Cashew Coconut Granola recipe, I have loved the pairing of cashews and oats so much it carried over into this recipe too! A little bit a’ oats never hurt nobody!
These are definitely not as decadent and indulgent as my Classic Peanut Butter Cookies, but they are equally as delicious! These cookies get a double dose of cashew goodness from both cashew butter and pieces of roasted cashews. They are the perfect cookie to snack on when ya need something a lil’ nutty and a lil’ sweet that’s chewy with a bit of crunch! With these cookies you’ve got the best of all worlds!
These are definitely a must try for any cashew lover!
