Gluten Free Sunflower Butter Cookies (Nutless Wonders)
1 cup sunflower seed butter
1 cup brown sugar (if using store bought butter that includes sugar, slightly reduce sugar)
1 large egg
1 tsp baking soda
flax seeds (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix ingredients together. Place 1/2 tsp size balls on parchment or a stick-free mat on a baking sheet. Bake 8-9 minutes. The less time you bake the chewier they will be. (For chewier cookies remove when they are still soft and seem undone.)
A true nut free, gluten free crowd pleaser that would make a great ice cream sandwich cookie too.
Pairs Well With
I based this recipe on the LA Times flourless peanut butter cookie recipe after wanting to create a nut free, gluten free cookie. You can make a batch in less than 15 minutes including baking time!
