Servings: 12 cookies Preparation Time: 5 minutes Cooking Time: 12 minutes Total Time: 17 minutes


  • 1 cup smooth and drippy cashew butter (see notes)
  • 1 large egg (see notes)
  • 2/3 cup granulated sweetener of choice (erythritol or monk fruit sweetener)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup sugar-free candy buttons (use these only)


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine all your ingredients, except for the candy buttons, and mix well. Using a rubber spatula, fold through the candy at the end.
  2. Cover the mixing bowl and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F). Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set it aside.
  4. Remove the mixing bowl from the fridge. Form 12 balls of dough and place them on the lined sheet, 1-2 inches apart. Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges just begin to turn golden.
  5. Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool completely.
