Sunflower Seed Butter Cookies

Wednesday, September 5, 2012

I have been craving all things peanut butter lately. Especially peanut butter cookies! I think it is a "want what I can't have" kind of thing. Though my allergy tests came back saying that I wasn't allergic to peanuts my body definitely does not react well to them! 

I really like almond butter but sunflower seed butter is definitely the next best thing to peanut butter. I usually make healthy versions of treats but sometimes you just need to use some sugar! These cookies are such a cinch to throw together because the ingredient list is so short! Most people make these cookies with peanut butter but I think that any nut butter would work great!  

Sunflower Seed Butter Cookies


  • 1 Cup Sunflower Seed Butter
  • 3/4 Cup Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • A few mini chocolate chips, thrown in for fun! 
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Combine all ingredients
  3. Form into small balls and flatten with a fork in a crosshatch pattern
  4. Bake 8-10 minutes 
  5. Enjoy! 
*The dough freezes great! I can't be trusted with lots of cookies in the house so I like to make small batches and freeze the extra dough for a few days later!

I will for sure try these. Hannah is allergic to peanuts and misses peanut butter - it was her FAVE!
