The idea for these simple protein cookies came to me originally when I made my Whole30 Blueberry Cashew Butter. The butter tasted so good, it reminded me of a cookie- which got me to thinking, what if I made cookies out of this cashew butter. I had made cookies out of nut butters thousands of times before. But what if this time, I didn’t really add any other sugar, and just used an egg to help the cookies bake and hold together? That way, I would have the texture of a traditional cookie, a wonderful subtle sweet flavor, but without any of the added sugars of regular cookies.

My curiosity to know what this cookie would be like was killing me. Would it work? Would it taste good? Or would it be a total flop? And to my great delight, the cookies actually ended up being quite delicious! They were moist, and had the texture of many paleo cookies I had eaten before, but they were not overly sweet. They were satisfying to eat, while also having a light sweet flavor added by the freeze dried blueberries and vanilla.

When my mom tried them, she said that they reminded her of a scone, and I 100% agreed. Because of the absence of sugar, they were more bread like and dense, but still nonetheless reminiscent of cookies. These would be perfect for breakfast with some sugar free jam slathered on top. Or if you’re looking for a sweeter treat, you can try adding some non-dairy chocolate chips like I did.

I think these would be a great snack to have around when you’re craving that sweet treat, but don’t want to go into a complete sugar coma. So give these a try, and see just how satisfying a low-sugar treat really can be!
