Fancy Sunflower Seed Cookies – Gluten Free

By |April 18th, 2017|

These sunflower seed cookies really are fancy, delicious and healthy too! Often cookies are made with lots of butter, white flour and white sugar which are not healthy ingredients. I have developed them with healthy ingredients and no starch.  Makes 28 – 30 cookies 


2/3 cup virgin coconut oil, melted*
1/2 cup coconut or palm sugar, ground finely
1/4 tsp stevia, light liquid
2 tbsp golden flax meal (ground flax seeds)
1/4 cup warm clean water
2/3 cup brown rice flour
1/3 cup rolled oats
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp Himalayan Salt
1 tsp vanilla
2/3 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/3 cup almonds
1/2 cup raisins, unsulfured, unsweetened


  1. Preheat oven to 325º F
  2. Add warm water to flax meal in a small bowl and mix; let sit 5 minutes.
  3. Combine coconut oil, sugar, vanilla, stevia and salt until creamy.
  4. Add flax meal mixture to coconut oil mixture and mix well.
  5. Then mix in brown rice flour and baking powder.
  6. Mix in oatmeal, fruit, seeds and nuts.
  7. Make little one inch mounds, place on a coconut greased baking sheet and flatten each one.
  8. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes.
  9. Take out of the oven and let cool before removing from the pan.

*Melt coconut oil on very low heat.
