Sunflower Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

  in Desserts, Recipes

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
1 egg
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

  1. Cream the butter and sugar together until fluffy. Beat in the egg, then add the sunflower butter and vanilla.
  2. Whisk together the flour, salt, and baking powder and add to the dough. Mix until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  3. 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.
