These delights are pillow-soft cookies with chewy interiors and delicate crust on the outside. Sunflower Hemp Butter Cookies are simply delicious! I emphasize “simply”; you most likely have all the ingredients to whip up this recipe in your cupboard.
Start with applesauce, whatever milk you prefer to use, and of course, our Once Again Sunflower Hemp Butter. Now, in terms of the next few ingredients, you have some options. The maple syrup serves as the sweetening agent we chose; however, some other options that include honey, corn syrup, or molasses. If you happen to prefer conventional sugar, then increase the milk in the recipe to three tablespoons. Tapioca flour serves as a thickening ingredient and can be substituted by arrowroot or cornstarch with a 1:1 ratio. If you prefer to use rice flour, the substitution is one tablespoon of rice flour to two tablespoons of tapioca flour. The last ingredient is baking powder.
It is important to ensure that the baking powder does not come in contact with sunflower butter, which is why it is the last ingredient added. When those two ingredients come in direct contact, there is a chance that your cookies may turn green when they bake. Although still perfectly safe to eat, it may not be your desired outcome.
That is as simple as it gets when it comes to a cookie. This recipe for our Sunflower Hemp Butter Cookies is an option for those avoiding nuts, – as well as those on a gluten- free diet. If the milk used is plant- based, this recipe becomes vegan. Not mentioned yet, but equally important, this cookie is nutritious as a source of Omega fatty acids and fiber.
