I was first introduced to sunbutter when we went Paleo and boy am I glad we know about it! Sunbutter is just sunflower seeds in “butter” form. I prefer it much more than peanut butter. It has the same texture but is a little less sweet.
I was craving cookies this weekend but was also in a super lazy mood, what a combination! Then I thought up this recipe and quickly got to work.
The recipe has only three ingredients, and the cookies are very similar to a peanut butter cookie, right down the the crosshatch pattern on them! I made these a little less sweet to help with my sugar intake but feel free to add more if you want.
Sunbutter is becoming very popular in grocery stores, and I have yet to find a store that does not carry it!

  • 1 cup sunbutter
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 egg
  • Salt for sprinkling on top


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Place sunbutter, sugar and egg in a bowl and blend until fully mixed together.
  • Scoop onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and flatten out slightly with a fork, you can do a crosshatch pattern if you like. I make smaller cookies so they last longer in our house!
  • Sprinkle with salt.
  • Cook for 8-10 minutes and cool before eating.
