½ cup Navitas Organics Cashew Nuts

¼ cup Navitas Organics Chickpea Flour

½ cup cassava flour

¼ cup tapioca flour

13½ Tbsp. unsalted butter

2 Tbsp. + ¾ tsp. water

Zest of an orange

¼ cup organic cane sugar

¼ cup coconut sugar

¾ Tbsp. vanilla extract

¼ tsp. salt

Flaky sea salt, for topping


Place cashews in a blender or food processor and blend until they reach a fine texture. Set aside.

Brown butter in a pan by placing over medium heat. Butter should foam up, smell nutty and turn a golden to deep golden color. Let cool in refrigerator about an hour.

Preheat oven to 300˚F.

Mix cashew, chickpea, cassava, and tapioca flours with salt.

Cream browned butter with both sugars, water and orange zest for about 3 minutes until light in color. Add vanilla and mix.

Sift flours into creamed butter and incorporate.

Spread mixture into a 9-inch round tart pan. Poke holes using a fork. Use a knife to make cuts into the dough to mark 12 wedges.

Bake for about 40 minutes, remove from oven and place on a cooling rack.

Cut the shortbread using the guidelines and let cool completely.

Sprinkle with flaky sea salt and enjoy!

Makes 12 cookies
