Sunflower seed butter has to be one my favorite condiments. Or would it be considered a spread? Either way, this allergy friendly butter is so yummy on toast, in smoothies, on a spoon 🙂 and especially in this cookie recipe. Sunflower seed butter cookies are so rich and chewy and the edges are perfectly crisp.
Why you will love these cookies
This recipe whips up so fast, in as little as 8 minutes.

Incredibly versatile. You can add in anything you like, such as chocolate chips or raisins.

Let’s get baking!
These cookies bake up in less than 10 minutes and you can adjust the bake time depending on whether you prefer your cookies soft and chewy or more on the crunchy side. My husband and I both prefer these cookies to be light, soft and chewy so at about 8 minutes or so they are ready to come out. This recipe always makes a good enough of cookies. Depending on large I make them, I will get about 30 or so cookies.
Sunflower seeds in general are high in fat, but they have the good fat 🙂 You know, the kind that might the American Heart Association says could help your heart. Don’t overindulge if you are watching your waistline 😉
