I don’t make many paleo treats for the kids, but occasionally I do make some cookies to either eat as a snack or to put in lunch boxes.
These cookies are made using sunflower seed butter, and are nut-free.
Sunflower seeds, whole eggs and chocolate are all AIP stage 2 reintroductions. When reintroducing foods on the AIP, I recommend this guide.
Chocolate Chunk Sunbutter Cookies
makes 12 cookies
- ½ cup sunflower seed butter (made using sunflower seeds and this recipe)
- 6 tbsp coconut flour
- 1 egg
- ½ cup coconut sugar
- ⅓ cup coconut oil – melted
- 12 small chunks of good quality dark chocolate (95% cocoa solid if possible)
- sunflower seeds to decorate
Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F.
In a large bowl, mix together the sunflower seed butter, coconut flour, egg, coconut sugar and melted coconut oil. Place the dough in the fridge for 30 minutes to allow it to firm up.
Once the dough has firmed up, roll it into 12 even sized balls and place them on a baking sheet. Flatten the balls out into cookie shapes.
Press one chunk of chocolate into the center of each cookie and decorate with some sunflower seeds.
Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes until starting to brown. The cookies are very soft when first removed from the oven so allow the cookies to firm up on the baking sheet for 10 minutes and then remove to a wire tray to cool completely.
