The other day, I found myself craving peanut butter cookies. The only problem with this is that I don't eat peanuts. In fact, I haven't eaten peanuts or peanut-containing products in over 15 years. So what's a girl to do? I put on my culinary thinking cap and decided to get creative!
Over the years, I have discovered that roasted sunflower butter has a flavour profile reminiscent of peanut butter. So, naturally, that's the food that first came to mind for my cookie-making experiment. And I wasn't to be disappointed! The result was a cookie that satisfied both my taste buds and my nutritional quality standards. Since these cookies are nut-free, they also have the bonus of being school safe.
