I’ve had some cashew butter in my pantry for a little bit as I was testing a recipe for my next book, that I will be sharing details about soon! Ah, I can’t wait to share that with you guys! But, anyways, the cashew butter was sitting in there and I knew I wanted to make cookies with it. I was thinking about what kind, and I thought that adding oatmeal and mini chocolate chips sounded really good. And here we are with Oatmeal Cashew Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies!
I recently found organic mini chocolate chips, and I have been using them everywhere, I’m obsessed! I haven’t been able to look away from them in the pantry when grabbing chocolate chips, haha! So, they made their way into this cookie recipe too. But, if you don’t have mini chocolate chips you can use regular chocolate chips as well, no problem! I just love the minis as their texture is different and you can pack more of them into a cookie! So, I highly recommend trying some of these organic mini chocolate chips as they are so good!
I usually don’t make cookies that look like this, as I usually prefer a thicker cookie. However, the flavor profile of these Oatmeal Cashew Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies lends really well to a thin and ultra chewy cookie like these are here. Plus, they are delicious dipped in milk too! Grab the recipe below for these Oatmeal Cashew Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Why use organic ingredients in this recipe? You all know I’m a huge organic advocate, and I bet you may be thinking sometimes, Why would I even bother to use organic ingredients in something that is so sweet and indulgent? But, that is the exact reason why ou should use organic ingredients! Sweet things need to have flavor in order to be good, otherwise they are just sweet and they don’t taste like much else. Organic ingredients are more pure than conventional ones, therefore they actually have more flavor than the non organic options. Say it with me, organic means more flavor! And not just more flavor but a more true and pure flavor. And organic ingredients are much healthier for you to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients!
So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here.
