Ginger Cashew Cookies

Ginger Cashew Cookies

These most delightful ginger cookies with raw cashews, almond butter, fresh ginger and a scattering of sesame seeds are sweetened with medjool dates, and are also eggless and flourless. With only five ingredients, they are also remarkable easy to prepare, especially if you have a food processor or high-powered blender to speed up the mixing process. Simply shape the dough, and bake for 10 minutes. Let sit for another 10 minutes, and enjoy. Ginger cookies are a popular treat all year round, especially during the holiday season, so you may want to consider making up a batch or two as part of your holiday baking. Best of all, they are packed with protein, not overly sweet, so if you want to enjoy a cookie for breakfast, you'll have no need to feel guilty. Moist and portable, peanut butter could also be used instead of the almond butter if you so choose.

  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 12 medjool dates, pitted
  • 2 tablespoons fresh ginger, minced or grated
  • 2 tablespoons natural almond butter or peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds (optional)
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and preheat an oven to 350°F.

  • In a food processor, pulse together the cashews, dates, ginger, almond butter, and sesame seeds if using, until the mixture is well-combined and begins to stick together, scraping down the sides of the food processor as necessary. If the mixture seems to dry, add a few more dates or a bit more almond butter.

  • With slightly damp hands, roll about 1 tablespoon of the dough into a ball, gently flatten, and transfer to the prepared pan. Repeat with the remaining mixture.

  • Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until the cookies begin to brown. Remove from the oven and let sit on the pan for another 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool. Store remaining cookies in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
