  • Summary

    Sunflower seed flour is a great option for people who have nut allergies but still want to bake low carb. I’ve had some fun playing around with it recently, and it results in very tender, delicious baked goods. You can play up the sunflower flavor, as in these cookies, or hide it behind chocolate or other strong flavors. Just be forewarned – the chlorophyll in the sunflower seeds sometimes reacts with leavening agents like baking soda or baking powder and gives the baked goods a greenish hue. My first batch of these sunbutter chocolate chip cookies had baking soda and turned distinctly green. The second batch had just a little baking powder and they stayed nice and brown!

    Ingredients

    • 1 cup sunflower seed flour
    • 3/4 tsp baking powder
    • 1/4 tsp salt
    • 1/2 cup Sun Butter (make sure to mix in the oil well) or other sunflower seed butter
    • 1/4 cup butter, softened
    • 1/2 cup Swerve Sweetener or other erythritol based sweetener
    • 1 large egg, room temperature
    • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
    • 1/3 cup sugar free chocolate chips such as Lily’s
