Vegan Cashew Cookie Recipe

Okay, this is a basic recipe. As I’ve said time and time again, I’m not a fan of walnuts. The husband can’t get enough of them. I decided to whip up a batch of cookies and of course he wanted nuts. I do like cashews so I tossed those in. Couldn’t help but add some chocolate chips. Next time I might try a variation that has cashew nut butter!
