Flourless Sun-butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have really been craving a good chocolate chip cookie- a nut-butter chocolate chip cookie. But I have been overloading on nuts and seeds lately (like a lot more than the recommended 5% of your daily diet), so I wanted to make a cookie that used a seed-butter vs nut-butter and no nut flour :)

So, I did one of things that I do best and researched. Sure enough, it has been done before. (Side note: I usually think I'm all clever and creative, put my idea into my little Google search engine at the top of my browser and what? Hm... yes, it has been done before. Or some variation of what I am thinking). It's quite fascinating.

I tweaked this recipe from Comfortable Domestic a bit - added almond butter and used cane sugar and honey in place of the brown sugar.

Well... they aren't exactly paleo because there is cane sugar in it- but they are close. So, I call them 'paleoish' ;)

Flourless Sun-butter Chocolate Chip Cookies:

1 egg (organic cage-free)
1 tbls honey (I used wildflower)
1/4 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup pure cane sugar
3/4  cup sun-butter (creamy)
1 tbls ground almond butter
1/2 tsp baking soda
Pinch of sea salt
1 cup dairy/soy free chocolate chips

Um... I could have used small spoonfuls instead of HUGE spoonfuls and they may have turned out a little prettier...Oh and they are flat. Super flat. That would be because I forgot the baking powder- but they were tasty nonetheless. (If you do add the baking powder you will likely need to bake a couple minutes longer).


Mix all the wet ingredients together and then add the dry. Pretty simple ;) Drop spoonfuls (of your desired size) onto a baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes at 350°.

Yields 10-15 cookies.

Enjoy ;)
