Sunbutter Cookies

These cookies are awesome enough to make my 15 month old son point at them and go, “ehhh” – which means “hand it over right now and no one gets hurt.”

They taste like peanut butter cookies, but kids with peanut allergies, and small kiddos who can’t have nuts yet  can have them too. But wait, there’s more. They are also gluten free, dairy free, and egg free. And they are grain free, if you care about that.  Score.

Sunbutter Cookies (From Feeding My Kid)

These use a product called Sunbutter – hence the name. Sunbutter is a nut butter, except instead of being made with nuts, it is made with sunflower seeds. I buy it at my regular grocery store.

1 cup creamy Sunbutter

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/4 cup light brown sugar

1 1/2 tsp Ener G brand Egg Replacer

2 Tbsp water

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp gluten free vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Mix together the sugars, egg replacer, water, baking soda and vanilla. Beat in the Sunbutter. Using a teaspoon or a cookie scoop, drop dough onto baking sheet. Use a fork to lightly press a criss cross pattern on the top of each cookie, flattening it slightly. Bake for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.
