Cashew Nut Butter Shortbread Cookies

Cashew Nut Butter Shortbread Cookies

These sweet treats are super tasty and unbelievably really good for you too. They taste just like shortbread, but far more healthy and nutritious.

We’ve used cashew nut butter in ours, but you could also try almond butter and that will still achieve a similar result.

We’ve added a few raisins to these but this is optional as the biscuits still taste great without them. If you do add them be careful not to add too many as this could cause the biscuits to break.

    1. Hi Talya,

      Thanks for getting in touch with us!

      We haven’t tried the recipe with flour, but of course you can try. The flavour and texture won’t be the same if you don’t use the ingredients mentioned in the recipe, but we think it would be fine.

      Hope it works out for you!!

        1. That’s wonderful news, thank you for letting us know!! We didn’t think we’d find out whether it worked out for you, but we’re glad you got back in touch.
          We’ll have to try at some point based on your recommendation!
