Recipe Card


  • 1/2 cup cashew butter
  • 1/4 cup monk fruit sweetener
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup tapioca flour
  • 3 tablespoons almond flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground chia/flax seed
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon matcha powder
  • 2-3 teaspoons almond milk


  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350°F.

  • Step 2

    If your cashew butter is very hard, heat it in the microwave briefly, about 15 seconds. You want it to be soft and slightly runny.

  • Step 3

    Combine cashew butter, monk fruit, vanilla extract, and 2 tsp almond milk (omit if your cashew butter is very runny). Add remaining ingredients and stir until a smooth, moldable cookie dough forms. If your dough seems too dry, add extra almond milk, 1 tsp at a time, until a moldable dough forms.

  • Step 4

    Scoop about 1 tbsp of dough and roll into a ball. Place on baking sheet and use your fingers to slightly flatten the dough into a disc. Repeat with remaining dough.

  • Step 5

    Bake 10-12 minutes, until lightly browned on the edges. Cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely. The cookies will be very soft at first but firm up and become crispy as they cool.
