For many years now, I have given up eating peanut butter, as much as I loved it, I found that it was a huge trigger for my migraines. I decided to try replacing it with almond butter, but at first, I did not like it but as I kept eating it, I took a liking to it. I then started experimenting with other nut butters, just as long as I didn’t touch “peanut butter”. I later tried “cashew butter” and liked the taste as well, which made sense, since cashews are my favourite nuts to snack on, therefore, this recipe is based on “cashew butter” as the star ingredient. This recipe is very low in sugar so if you prefer your desserts to taste sweeter, just add a bit more coconut sugar, as noted, in the recipe.
I also try not to bake with any white flours or refined sugars so basically, this recipe is just filled with all healthy ingredients.
I wanted to create a cookie that would also be high in protein and healthy enough to have pre or post workout snack, so I added my favourite ingredient “collagen protein powder”. I love all the health benefits it has and the fact that it quickly dissolves in any recipe, is the best part.
