Sunflower Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
When making cookies, sunflower butter is a tasty alternative to peanut butter for people with tree nut allergies.
8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup sunflower butter (lightly sweetened is ok)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup white spelt flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
- Cream the butter and sugar together until fluffy. Beat in the egg, then add the sunflower butter and vanilla.
- Whisk together the flour, salt, and baking powder and add to the dough. Mix until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.
- Chill the dough for at least 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Spoon dough out into 1 inch balls. Flatten balls slightly. Bake about 8 – 10 minutes or until lightly browned on the bottom. Let cool a few minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Makes about 30 cookies.
