Vegan Sunflower Butter Cookies

I was introduced to Sunflower Butter
 at work and now I must admit friends, I'm hooked.
My boss, Nancy is allergic to nuts and eggs, poor thing, and one day at work I spied her eating a spoonful of what I thought was peanut butter. It looked and smelled similar but nope it was SunButter!
It's her favorite indulgence and after baking these moist and delicious cookies I have to say it's a favorite of mine now too!
Nancy celebrated her bday today so I decided to make her
Vegan Sunflower Butter Cookies as a gift.
Can't find Sunflower Butter or just prefer good ol' peanut butter? No prob- just substitute creamy PB and these cookies will taste just as fantastic!

  2. Hi, Nicole,
    Wow what a great co-worker you are! Since I blog for SunButter, of course I appreciate the post. But as a fellow cookie-baker, I love this recipe--the little bit of molasses intrigues me enough to get out the mixing bowl. Enjoying your blog. Take care!
