File this under GENIUS right next to banana “ice cream”: nut butter that tastes like cookie dough.
C’mon, admit it, you eat cookie dough raw straight from the package in the fridge or the bowl if you’re making homemade cookies, right? Don’t worry; you’re not alone. There’s only one problem with that sugar- and butter-filled bite, and it comes the second after you finish chewing: the guilt.
Good thing we found a delicious way to ditch the guilt without giving up that gooey cookie dough flavor. This nut butter, made from almonds and cashews, is a creamy-slightly-crunchy way to get the same taste but also banish your hunger and cravings for good--not just for the second.

Paleo cashew-almond nut butter that tastes like COOKIE DOUGH. You're not dreaming, this is real. Put it on everything.
The heart-healthy nuts pack plenty of fiber and protein, two things desperately missing from chocolate chip cookies--baked or otherwise. The waistline-friendly fat and protein will fill you up so that a little bit silences your cravings and banishes your hunger. It’s even swirled with cacao nibs to recreate that bite of chocolate you look for in a cookie (sorry, oatmeal raisin lovers). And, yes, it’s slightly sweetened. What good would a cookie dough recreation be if it didn’t satisfy your sweet tooth?!
We know making your own nut butter isn’t as easy as picking up a jar from the store, but it’s far simpler than you would expect. Translation: the food processor does all the work for you. Then, whenever you have a craving, simply reach for a spoonful of this spread.
