Nut-Free “Peanut Butter” Chocolate Chip Cookies

Why not use sunflower butter to make yummy chocolate chip cookies? These cookies are gluten-free and use a small amount of coconut oil as a sweetener. It is important to ensure that there is xanthan gum included to bind the other ingredients together. These cookies are a modern tasty take on a delicious classic recipe and everyone can enjoy tasty treats.

Key Takeaways:

  • Using coconut oil will help the cookies stay warm and smooth. It adds a subtle sweetness.
  • This dough just takes a little extra love before you can form it into balls on your cookie sheet.
  • After all that kneading and finessing, these babies bake relatively quickly in the oven.


“My secret ingredient? Sunflower butter! It imparts a nutty flavor similar to peanut butter, but is much more allergy-friendly.”
