Yield 12


  • 1/4 cup melted unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup drippy and creamy cashew butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups quick-cooking oats gluten-free if desired
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ cup butterscotch chips
  • ¼ cup dark chocolate chopped
  • ¼ cup craisins or raisins
  • ¼ cup salted and roasted peanuts roughly chopped
  • ¼ cup salted pretzels chopped into small pieces

Optional Toppings

  • ¼ cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • ¼ cup pretzels roughly chopped


  • First, preheat the oven to 350ºF and spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Next, combine melted butter and brown sugar until there are no lumps. Then, add maple syrup, egg, cashew butter, and vanilla and mix again.
  • Add salt, quick-cooking oats, and baking soda and mix until everything is combined. Add in butterscotch chips, dark chocolate chunks, craisins, peanuts, and pretzel shucks. Mix to combine.
  • Refrigerate for 1 hour to chill.
  • If you would like to roll your cookie dough in extra toppings, place the shredded coconut and pretzels on a plate. Set aside.
  • Scoop 2 tablespoons of batter into your hands and form it into a ball. Roll the cookie dough into the toppings, if desired. Press the extra toppings into the cookie dough ball.
  • Place it onto the cookie sheet and slightly press down to form a cookie shape. The batter may feel a bit wet, but they will be so soft and chewy when done baking!*
  • Repeat the process above until you’ve fit 6 cookies on your baking sheet.
  • Bake cookies at 350ºF for 11-14 minutes or until they begin to turn golden brown.
  • Let cookies cool for a couple of minutes on the baking sheet before carefully transferring them to a wire rack to continue cooling for at least 20 minutes to firm up.

Tips & Notes

If you are rolling the cookie dough in additional toppings, don’t be afraid to really press the toppings in with your hands.
Cookie dough – the cookies will spread just a little bit when baking. If you don’t press them down, you will get dome-shaped cookies.
It might help to slightly moisten your hands before rolling the cookie dough and washing your hands in-between balls because the dough is pretty sticky.
