Makes: 12 to 15
- 2 tablespoons of Coconut Flour
- 1 cup SunButter
- ¼ cup of melted Coconut Oil
- ½ cup of Pure Maple Syrup
- 1 large Egg
- ½ tsp of Baking Soda
- Pinch of Sea salt
- ¼ cup Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips or Cacao Nibs (optional)
- Preheat the oven at 350 degrees F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone liner.
- In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the coconut flour, salt, and baking soda, making sure the lumps in the coconut flour are all broken.
- In large bowl, combine the sunbutter, maple syrup, melted coconut oil and egg. Beat it thoroughly, till everything is well combined.
- Gently fold in the coconut flour mix.
- Mix in chocolate chips or cocoa nibs, if using.
- Let the batter stand for 15 minutes. It should be of droppable consistency. If it is still too thin, add two teaspoon of coconut flour and wait for another 5 minutes.
- Drop the batter by the tablespoons onto your baking sheet, leaving enough gap in between two cookies to prevent them from spreading into each other.
- Bake for 9-12 minutes or until cookies appear done and are golden brown.
- Let cookies sit on baking sheet 10 minutes before moving it to a wire rack to cool completely.
- The chlorophyll in the sunflower seeds often reacts with the baking soda, resulting in a green colored cookies. The cookies are perfectly safe to consume and taste the same, though it looks a bit weird. You can leave out the baking soda, but the cookies won’t be as puffy, but still taste the same. Or you can use baking powder instead, though it won’t be Paleo anymore.
