It’s been a really long time since I’ve shared a dessert with you. I don’t make dessert often. With my little guys food allergies I have to use specialty ingredients. Thankfully they are becoming more mainstream and I can find SunButter at most grocery stores.
I first made these allergy-friendly SunButter Cookies last year. It’s taken me a long time to share them but I hope the wait is worth it.
I still prefer to buy most of my “special” items on Amazon. I have an Amazon Prime membership so they are delivered to my door so I don’t have to take the kids in the store. Win-Win. I’ll share links to the products I buy if you are curious. I buy them in bulk but you can purchase smaller amounts.
- 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1/2 cup SunButter
- 1/2 cup Sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 cup warm water + 1 Tbsp Chia Seeds
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 cup Rice Flour Brown
- 1/4 cup Sorghum Flour
- 1/4 cup Tapioca Flour
- 1/2 tsp Xanthan Gum
- additional sugar for dipping
- Preheat oven to 350° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or use a Silpat Non-Stick Baking Mat.
- “Cream” first four ingredients together in a medium bowl.
- In a separate bowl (I use my measuring cup) mix warm water and chia seeds together. Allow them to sit for a few minutes while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
- In a large bowl mix the remaining dry ingredients together.
- Dump all of the wet ingredients into the large bowl with the dry ingredients and mix well.
- Use your hands to scoop out ping-pong sized cookies and roll them into balls. Roll them in sugar. Use wet hands to keep the dough from sticking to your hands.
- Flatten them onto the prepared cookie sheet.
- Bake for 12 minutes. Allow to cool before eating.
This recipe makes about 12 cookies. They will be soft in the middle but firm on the edges, the best of both worlds. They are great for lunch boxes too!
For a little change try adding a 1/2 cup Enjoy Life Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips.
I haven’t made this with peanut butter or other nut butters but if you do please let me know how they turn out. You could use a Gluten and Wheat Free Baking Mix instead of using the flours mentioned above. Be sure to read the labels to check for allergens.
