  • Whisk the egg and sugars together in a large mixing bowl until combined.
  • Add the cashew butter, bicarbonate of soda and sea salt until the batter is smooth and thick.
  • Finally stir in the chocolate chips until evenly dispersed.
  • Leave for a couple of minutes for the dough to set then using the palms of your hands roll up the sticky dough into balls of about about 30g each and place on a baking sheet a couple of inches apart. Crumble a little salt on top of each cookie and press down slightly.
  • Bake for 6-8 minutes until the cookies are just turning golden.
  • Remove from the oven and leave on the baking sheet for 5 minutes to firm up before moving them to a wire rack to finish cooling.
