Lazy Vegan Recipe: Naturally Sweetened Cashew and Arrowroot Cookies

I realised the other day that it’s been a long time since I shared one of my lazy vegan recipes, and hoped you all didn’t think I hadn’t been eating much since I shared my herby, “creamy” garlic courgettes and barley recipe in January. Believe me, I have been eating plenty!

But at the weekend, when I had a case of late night sweet tooth munchies, I concocted a recipe to use up whatever I could find it the cupboards; and it was surprisingly a massive success! In particular, I wanted to make a dent in a jar of arrowroot I bought when trying out Green Moxie’s Natural organic eye shadow recipe. It’s pretty awesome that one ingredient can make you pretty and give you a happy belly!

The best thing about these cookies is that it’s all naturally sweetened thanks to the agave syrup, so they are almost guilt free. You can also swap the nuts for your favs; I just love cashews.

4. Place the bowl of dough into the fridge for about 10 minutes; greasing your baking tray in the meantime.

5. After the ten minutes is up, take your dough out of the fridge and split into 6 balls. Lightly flatten the balls into disk with your hands, onto the greased baking tray.
