Cookie Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup cashew butter
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon

Cinnamon Sugar Coating

  • 1/4 cup cane sugar
  • 3 tbsp cinnamon


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a small bowl, mix the cane sugar and 3 tablespoons of cinnamon until evenly mixed. Set aside.
  • Add all other ingredients to a large mixing bowl. Use a hand mixer to mix until creamed together and well combined.

  • Use a cookie scoop or a spoon to scoop out dough from the large bowl. Drop cookie dough balls into the cinnamon sugar mixture one at a time. Roll them until completely covered in cinnamon sugar. Then, transfer to the baking sheet, keeping the cookies 2-3 inches apart. These cookies spread quite a bit because unlike traditional snickerdoodles that are more tall with a fluffy texture, these are wide and chewy!

  • Bake for 15 minutes until the edges are just set and golden brown. The centers will still be gooey and look underbaked, but this is perfect!
  • Once removed from the oven, let them cool on the cookie sheet until they can be handled without breaking - about 10 minutes. The cookies will continue to cook as they rest. After that time, carefully transfer to a wire rack to cool to room temperature for best results.
