Why not give Santa some gluten free, low-cal cookies this year?  Trust me, he'll be asking for these scrumptious cookies year round!  I know a lot of people say, "tastes just like the real one", but seriously, these cookies are insanely delicious!  The cashew butter makes then rich, savory and decadent and the chocolate chips balance out with the perfect sweetness!  They are just crisp on the outside and chewy in the middle.  And with only 5 ingredients they come together in minutes!

Cashew Chocolate Chip Cookies

What you'll need:

1 cup cashew butter {think peanut butter but with cashews}

1 cup brown sugar

1 tsp. baking soda

1 egg

1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

What you'll do:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix all ingredients except chocolate chips.  When blended, mix in the chocolate chips.  Using your hands, form 1 1/2 inch balls and flatten into a pancake shape and place on an un-greased cookie sheet.  Bake for 9 minutes.  Let the cookies sit on the cookies sheet for about 30 seconds to 1 minute before letting cool on a wire rack.

I think they are yummiest warm, but still fabulous at room temp : )
