SunButter Cookies – How To Make

First, preheat the oven to 350℉ and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Next, combine all the ingredients (except the chocolate chips) into a medium sized bowl and stir to combine.

Once the cookie dough is nice and thick, add in the chocolate chips if using.

Using a 1.5 tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop the dough onto the prepared baking sheet Be sure to only bake 6 cookies at a time, as the dough will spread while baking. Gently flatten just the tops of the cookies and bake for 8-9 minutes.

Remove the pan from the oven and let the sunflower butter cookies cool on the pan until they come to room temperature. Who says nut free recipes aren’t delicious?!
