5 Seed Butter Cookies

5 Seed Butter Cookies

5 Seed Butter in cookie form, what more is there to say? Eat them on their own or loaded up with ice cream, banana slices, and chocolate syrup. This specific recipe is our favorite, but feel free to substitute 5 Seed Butter for peanut butter in your own cookie recipes too! This recipe yields about 30 medium cookies.

Ingredients: 

1 cup 5 Seed Butter
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1 cup butter softened
2 eggs
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon cinnamon (optional)
2 1⁄2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions: 

1. Mix 5 Seed Butter, butter and both sugars.
2. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well.
3. Add baking powder, salt, cinammon, and vanilla.
4. Mix in flour.
5. Roll into balls and using a fork, flatten and make a criss-cross pattern on the top of the cookie. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes!

P.S. Sometimes, baked goods made with sunflower seeds will turn green due to a natural reaction between baking soda and sunflower seeds-the main ingredient in our 5 Seed Butter. Have no fear, they're still safe to eat and will have no difference in flavor! This recipe has a dialed back amount of baking powder so these should stay a creamy golden brown color, but we wanted to give you a heads up just in case :) If you're looking for festive cookies for St. Patrick's Day or Halloween, double the baking powder to see the green effect!
