Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F or 175 degrees C.
  • Add the sunflower butter, coconut oil, honey, egg, vanilla, sea salt and baking powder to a bowl, and mix together well until creamy.
  • In the same bowl, add in the rest of the ingredients. I typically add 1/2 of the chocolate drops, then use the rest of them to decorate the tops of the cookies. Mix together the ingredients until all are wet.
  • Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup (dipped in water first) to scoop out cookies. I slightly under fill the cup, and end up with 10 large cookies from this recipe.
  • These cookies will not spread very much, so using wet fingers, press the cookies down into a nice cookie shape. Use remaining chocolate drops to decorate the tops.
  • Bake for 10-13 minutes, until brown around the edges. The cookies will look under baked and shiny in the centers, but firm up well once they have cooled.
  • Store in the refrigerator or freezer for several weeks (or longer) in an airtight container or freezer ziplock bags. These cookies hold up well at room temperature and are a great lunch box treat option.
