Healthier Nut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies

I created this recipe on a whim and it turned out great the first time. No tweaking needed! The cashew butter gives these cookies a rich and flavorful texture. While the peanut powder provides more peanutty flavor without all the added calories. .



3/4 cup butter/margarine, softened

3/4 cup dark brown sugar, packed

1/3 cup granulated sugar

1 cup cashew butter

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

1 large egg

2 cups unbleached all purpose flour

2 teaspoons cornstarch

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 tablespoon golden flax seed

2 tablespoons peanut powder

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

1 1/2 cup semisweet or dark chocolate chunks



Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl with a whisk and set aside. [Flour, cornstarch, baking soda, flax seed, peanut powder, and salt.]


Next, cream butter and sugars until fully combined. Add cashew butter, vanilla, and egg, mix well.


Then, add the dry ingredients into the wet and beat on medium speed until fully combined. Lastly, add your chocolate chunks and mix until just incorporated.


Chill dough for 1 hour


Roll dough into balls (A large tablespoon), and roll into decorator sugar (optional). Then, place them onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.


Bake at 375 for 10-15 minutes or until edges are golden. I used my convection oven and baked these for exactly 13 minutes. Allow to cool for 5 mins before transferring to a serving tray.
