Sunflower Seed Butter Sandwich Cookie Recipe ~ grain free

For the cookies
1 cup smooth organic unsweetened sunflower seed butter
1/3 cup raw honey
1 large pastured egg
2 teaspoons organic vanilla extract
1/2 cup organic unsweetened shredded coconut
2 teaspoons organic powdered cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup organic chocolate chips

For the filling
1 1/2 cups organic palm or vegetable shortening
1/2 or more organic maple syrup
1/2 vanilla bean insides scraped out


Preheat oven to 350ºF and adjust rack to middle position. Place sunflower seed butter, honey, egg and vanilla in the bowl of a standing mixer. Mix on medium speed until blended.
Place shredded coconut, cinnamon, baking soda, and sea salt in a medium bowl and whisk until thoroughly mixed. Pour dry ingredients into sunflower seed butter mixture and mix until blended. Quickly stir in chocolate chips.
Scoop cookie dough using a 1 1/2-inch cookie scoop and place each dough ball onto a baking sheet lined with unbleached parchment paper. Space the cookie dough balls about 1-inch apart. Bake for 12 minutes until just golden brown. Cool completely.
For the filling:
Place shortening in stand mixer and beat until smooth. Add the vanilla beans and maple syrup and whip until light and fluffy. Adjust sweetness if needed.
To assemble:
Place one cookie bottom-side up on a work surface. Spread about 1 tablespoons of filling on the cookie. Top with another cookie. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Serve.
Cookies (without filling) can be stored in an airtight container for up to 1 week in the refrigerator.

These cookies are nice with a cup of tea...any time of day!


There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.
