An Allergy-Friendly Cookie
Today I'm sharing this yummy Sunbutter Cookie Recipe. We've got a nut allergy in my family and one of the things I've missed the most is peanut butter cookies. But when I realized that using Sunbutter tastes so super similar, I figured out how to fill my cookie void.
This is what you will need from the store before you make these scrumptious cookies.
- Brown sugar
- White sugar
- Baking soda
Nothing special. Just normal cookie making ingredients. And delicious, delightful Sunbutter. There aren't any special steps. It's basic cookie making. And a little bit of prayer since my oven runs hot and I, more often than not, burn EVERYTHING.
Turns out my nut allergic sun doesn't really care for these cookies all that much. But at least I know that when I'm craving a peanut butter cookie, I can make these and make sure that he is safe. And can you imagine these dipped in a nice dark chocolate? Oh yeah!
