Sunflower Seed Butter Cookies (nut-free, dairy-free, egg-free)
I am so excited to be sharing my recipe for nut-free Sunflower Seed Butter Cookies. These cookies are also dairy-free and egg-free!
Growing up with peanut allergies, I was always SO afraid of the cookies with fork impressions on the top. That fork impression was enough information to know that I was not able to eat those cookies. I have to say that it was pretty weird to bake cookies today and create the fork impression – I will have to get used to this!
Sunflower seed butter and I did not start off having the greatest relationship. The butter looks like danger, smells like danger, and tastes like danger. It took me quite a while to warm up to the taste, but I am enjoying it more and more now!
My husband officially got me hooked on sunflower seed butter when he put a spoon full on my chocolate chip waffles. I am now trying to incorporate this more into my baking, and am enjoying it.
I have never eaten a peanut butter cookie, so I do not have anything to compare these cookies to, but they received my husband’s approval, so they must be good (I believe he’s already eaten half a tray as I am writing this)!
I like my cookies a little softer, and without a super intense sunflower seed butter taste, so this is my ideal recipe. Feel free to edit the recipe according to your taste buds – more sunflower seed butter, more time in the oven for a crunchier cookie, etc.
I hope you enjoy!
