sunflower butter cookies!

if you're avoiding peanuts like i am, or even if you aren't, i think you'll really enjoy these cookies.
they have a rich yet not too overpowering taste, and are full of iron!

sunflower butter cookies 

  • 1 1/2 cup flour (i used white rice)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup soy-free earth balance, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 tablespoon ground flaxseed, mixed with 1/4 cup water (allowing to sit at least 5 minutes)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/2 cup sunflower butter
  • 1/8 cup sugar plus 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon plus 1/4 teaspoon salt
PREHEAT oven to 350 F
whisk flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl, set aside
in a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar
beat in flax mixtue, vanilla, and sunflower butter
add remaining dry ingredients, mix on low
on slightly oiled baking sheet, place 1" balls of dough
press with fork
in a small cup, mix together sugar, cinnamon, and salt
top cookies with sweet salty mix
bake 10-12 minutes (until sides are slightly brown)
do not over cook! they harden once they cool.
cool on baking sheet 10-12 minutes,
then transfer cookies to wire rack to cool

**note** the cookies will be slightly green on the inside, this is a natural occurrence when you mix the sunflower with baking soda!
