What's great about it

Good quality nut butters are delicious! I often enjoy them straight out of a jar - a truly delicious and natural treat. Look for nut butters with no added oils, sugar or stabilisers - the only ingredient on the back label should be nuts and maybe just a little salt - that's it! I've made these cookies a number of times and they are delicious using peanut, almond or macadamia nut butter. This is perfect for holiday baking and what I love about them is that you only need a few ingredients to create pure magic.


Makes 12 cookies 


1 cup (250 g) organic peanut or almond butter or macadamia nut butter

2 generous tablespoons honey or your choice of natural sweetener (coconut sugar, organic maple syrup, stevia etc)

1 organic egg

1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste


½ cup almonds or macadamia nuts, or other nuts roughly chopped

flaked salt to garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 150°C / 300°F.
  2. Combine nut butter, honey, vanilla and organic egg into a mixing bowl.
  3. Mix well until combined. The mixture will be soft and a little sticky – but that’s how it’s supposed to look. (Based on what nuts you use the mixture will vary in consistency. For a firmer cookie you can add a few tablespoons of almond meal or coconut flour.
  4. Taste and adjust sweetness to your liking.
  5. Spoon delicate portions onto a baking tray lined with baking paper, using a small teaspoon or mini ice cream scoop.
  6. Chop almonds or peanuts then garnish over the top.
  7. Press the cookie down so it flattens.
  8. Sprinkle lightly with a little flaked sea salt.
  9. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden.
  10. Remove and allow to cool. Enjoy.

Notes and Inspiration

Add 2 tablespoons Healthy Chef Organic Pea Protein or Healthy Chef Native Whey Protein Isolate to pump up the protein and boost amino acid profile.

Add 80 g roughly chopped dark chocolate for a choc chip version.

To make chocolate fudge cookies add 2 tablespoons Naked Chocolat.
