Cashew and Lemon Cookies

by Collette White | June 27, 2017

Good Afternoon, Happy Tuesday, I hope this finds you all well. Once again, we are all well here and nothing new to report …. besides the fact I have been working what feels like 24/7 on getting my new slow cooking cookbooks out to you guys, I know I have said it before but seriously, your continued support is simply so amazing.

I am popping by today to quickly share with you this crunchy and delicious cookie recipe that I had a play around with a few weeks ago when friends were over. I have made them few times since and the kids just love them (actually so do I!). They are a truly crispy, tasty Cookie and SO easy to make. YUMMO! I hope you love them too!

Ingredients

1 cup raw cashews (150g)

1 cup coconut flakes (55g)

½ cup rice malt syrup (150g)

rind of 1 lemon

2 tspns fresh lemon juice

1 tspn cinnamon

½ tspn vanilla

½ tspn baking powder

Method

Preheat oven to 190c and line a large cookie tray with baking paper.

STANDARD METHOD: Place all the ingredients into a food processor and blitz on medium – high speed. Once they are at the consistency of sticking together, roll tablespoon balls out of the mixture, place them on the tray (at least 3-4cm apart) and flatten slightly with a fork.

Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes or until golden. You will need to do 2-3 trays of these, depending how large your baking tray is.

SEE NOTES **

TMX METHOD: Place all the ingredients into the bowl and blitz on Speed 6 for 20 seconds. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and blitz for a further 20 seconds Speed 6. Roll tablespoon balls out of the mixture, place them on the tray (at least 3-4cm apart) and flatten slightly with a fork.

Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes or until crunchy. You will need to do 2-3 trays of these, depending how large your baking tray is.

Notes

the more you process the ingredients the finer the cashews and coconut will become, which will mean the cookies will spread more, be crunchier and would need a few less minutes cooking time. Enjoy!

Wishing you a truly wonderful week ahead! I look forward to connecting with you more again soon.
Take Care of You,
