Butter Nut Cookies

- A pinch of sea salt
- 200 g (7 oz.) cashew butter
- 4 organic eggs, lightly beaten

Preheat the oven to 175ºC (345ºF/Gas 4) and grease a baking tray.
In a bowl, mix together the coconut flour, baking powder, stevia and salt.

These biscuits are a real treat when you’re on a limited diet. Yum!
Where do you get Cashew Butter from ?
Most health food stores or Coles.
Could you use tahini instead of cashew butter? I’m avoiding cashews at the moment…
I made these last night and put them in an airtight container after cooling down however, this morning they were quite chewy… The taste is really good, but I expected them to be crunchy. Could you tell me what consistency they are supposed to have?
Thank you and keep up the inspiring work!
They shoul be crunchy did you test one when it had cooled down? Lee
I keep my Anzac biscuits in a tin rather than an airtight container, and find they stay crisp for days.
Good idea! x
Thanks by the way Lee, your website is great, so much info. I have had candida most of my life, and Fibromyalgia too. I now find in my mid 40’s that toxins have built up over the years too and have caused high acidity which I am combatting with Young Living oils products. Your recipes and information are very helpful, so many other I know have Fibromyalgia too, and I grew up not knowing anyone who had even heard of it, including the doctors. Great work, I am looking forward to purchasing your book in the near future.
Thank you i hope you enjoy the recipes. x lee
I made these yesterday and while they had a lovely taste, they were rather dry. I cooked them for the recommended time and they looked nicely cooked, not burnt. Any advice?
Hello 🙂 sometimes the coconut flour can soak up more of the liquid, i would add another tsp of coconut milk and see how that goes x
I’ve had terrible trouble finding Stevia Powder I can only find the granulated stuff. HELP!
I have the liquid and powder versions here supercharged.wpengine.com or you could try a natural health store
