Prep Time:




  • 2/3 cup sunflower seed butter
  • 2/3 cup hemp seeds or finely shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 egg white (approx. 3 tablespoons), whipped thoroughly until frothy


  1. Preheat your oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicon baking mat. Set aside.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, combine sunflower butter, hemp seeds, honey and vanilla extract. Stir to combine and set aside.
  3. Add egg white to the bowl of your stand mixer. If you do not have a stand mixer, you could try to use a high powered blender or food processor instead. Whip with the wire whisk, on high, for 2-3 minutes – until puffy like clouds.
  4. Add in sunflower butter mixture and mix until smooth.
  5. Spoon mixture, about 1 tablespoon at a time, onto prepared baking sheet. The dough will make enough for 12 cookies. Shape them as you want them as they will not expand or level out while they are cooking.
  6. Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes, until the tops begin to get golden and slightly cracked. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 20 minutes on the pan.
  7. Store cookies in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 5 days, or in the freezer for up to 2 months.
