Total time:22 mins
- 6 tbsp coconut flour
- ½ cup sunflower seed butter (nut free), or favorite nut butter (find one low in sugar and carbs)
- 1 egg
- Sweetener of choice: ⅔ cup coconut sugar for paleo, or for low carb use ⅔ cup erythritol (sugar free), where to buy erythritol
- ⅓ cup butter or coconut oil, melted.
- 2 tbsp raw sunflower seeds
- 12 dark chocolate chips (dairy and soy free kind) or sugar free kind, like this one, or if you don’t eat chocolate, then use 12 raisins
- Preheat oven to 350 F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper, or grease a baking sheet.
- In a large mixing bowl combine: 1 egg, ½ cup sunflower seed butter, sweetener of choice, and ⅓ cup melted butter or melted coconut oil, and 6 Tbsp coconut flour.
- Mix together thoroughly. Place dough in mixing bowl into the freezer for 12 minutes to make dough less sticky and spread less while baking.
- Place your decorating chocolate chips or raisins and sunflower seeds in a bowl near the baking sheet.
- Once dough is cold and more solid, then form into 12 dough balls and put each on the baking sheet. Flatten the tops of the dough a little. Push a chip or raisin into the center of each cookie. Then place and gently push the sunflower seeds around the chip or raisin in the cookie.
- After decorating, Bake at 350 F for 12 minutes or until cookies are browning.
- Remove from oven and let cool for at least 12 minutes or more to firm up a little before taking off baking sheet as they will be very soft when first out of the oven.
- Once completely cooled, remove from sheet and serve.

Good cookies, and a solid recipe, but they don’t taste like cookies. My 6-year-old stepson announced that they were “gross” after devouring the whole thing, while the 9-year-old nibbled at them slowly. These are more appropriately breakfast cookies, or, as my partner put it, “they taste like muffins.”
