i was looking for a gluten-free peanut butter cookie, & found this recipe doing a google search. i changed it a bit, & they were simply divine.
1c sunflower seed butter (i get mine at "trader joe's")
3/4c evaporated cane juice (sugar that hasn't been bleached)
1tsp vanilla extract
preheat the oven to 350, & grease your cookie sheet.
beat the egg, add the rest of the ingredients, & stir to combine.
with hands slightly damp: roll wanut-sized balls, & place them on your cookie sheet.
flatten each cookie with the back of a fork that has been dipped in sugar.
bake for 12 minutes.
gently loosen the bottom of each cookie from the sheet, & let them sit to cool.
notes :: they will be mushy until they cool, so try to stop yourself from eating more than 1 when they are first out of the oven. store them in a covered container in the fridge. if you don't eat them all at once, of course ;-)
enjoy! i plan to try these with dried cranberries; sort of a strange pb&j. i'm also going to try them with an egg replacer, to see if they can be made vegan. i'll let you know.
