Cashew Oat Chocolate Chip Cookies


Cashew Oat Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ever so slightly chewy, kinda gooey, buttery, and a teeny bit crumbly cashew oat cookies! Add some protein powder to give ’em a boost.

  1. 1/2 cup (120g) smooth all natural cashew butter
  2. 1/4 cup (55g) coconut oil
  3. 1/3 cup (95g) maple syrup
  4. 11/4 cup (150g) oat flour or 1 cup (120g) oat flour + 1/4 cup (30g) Pulsin Brown Rice Protein Powder
  5. 1/2 cup (50g) rolled oats
  6. 1/4 tsp baking soda
  7. Pinch of Pink Himalayan Rock Salt
  8. Pinch or two of cinnamon
  9. 1/4 tsp vanilla powder or pure vanilla extract (not essence)
  10. 2-3 tbsp Pulsin sugar-free Chocolate Drops


  • Melt coconut oil in the microwave. Mix with cashew butter and maple syrup (add vanilla extract if using).
  • Mix together dry ingredients…protein (if using), oat flour, oats, salt, cinnamon, baking soda and vanilla powder if using.
  • Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients. Pour in the wet ingredients and mix well to combine. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before stirring in chocolate chips. Place into the fridge for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 180C (350F).
  • Use an ice cream scoop to scoop out dough onto a baking paper lined baking tray to create 8-9 cookies. Gently flatten with the palm of your hand (they will spread a little whilst they cook).
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 10 -12 minutes (until golden!)… 12 minutes for a firmer cookie but it really does depend on your oven!
  • Allow to cool on the tray for 10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool fully…or serve the up warm with ice cream of choice… I’d opt for my Vanilla Bean Dream Ice Cream.
  • Once cool store in a seal tight container at room temperature for up to four days or freeze for up to one month.
