Almond Cashew Fourless Cookies

(This recipe is inspired by one that I use for PB flourless cookies with some modifications: My version of PBFL cookies also included shredded coconut and chocolate chips and no eggs.)

1 cup almonds
1 cup cashew
brown sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 pinch salt
1 or 2 Tbsp butter
1 tsp olive oil

Grind up almonds and cashews with olive oil in the Vita Mix until it becomes butter.
Remove almond-cashew butter from the blender and add equal amount (by volume) brown sugar.
Add vanilla extract, salt, softened butter and mix by hand to make it a smooth batter.

Roll up balls of "batter" and place it on cookie sheet lined with aluminium foil.
Preheat oven to 350.
Bake for 12-15 mins or until lightly browned.

Wait until the cookies cool down before trying to take them out of the sheet, otherwise they may crumble!
