Are Sunflower Seeds Gluten Free
Yes, sunflower seeds are gluten free. All seeds and nuts are gluten free naturally. They can become contaminated with gluten during the growing or processes stages. Check labels to see if there are any disclaimers that contain wheat or gluten.
A few years back almond butter was recalled in my area. With my youngest being intolerant to peanuts, we turned to sunflower seed butter. Up until that week, I had never really baked with sunflower seed butter – but I’m glad I started. Sunflower seed butter is such a great source of protien, and it tastes great.
You can use all sunflower seed butter in these sunflower cookies or you can use half sunflower seed butter and half of another milk nut or seed butter, like almond butter or cashew butter.

How to make Sunbutter Cookies
- In a medium mixing bowl, mix sunflower seed butter, coconut sugar, and egg.
- Add cocoa powder, and baking soda, and mix until incorporated. Depending on how thick your sunflower seed butter is, you may need to work it with your hands.
- Work in the chocolate chips or chopped chocolate until evenly incorporated.
- Form 18-24 small cookie dough balls and place them 12 at a time onto your cookie sheet, 2-inches apart.
- Press down lightly on each cookie to form a circle.
- Bake from 8 to 10 minutes, or until set.
If you like them softer, aim for 7-8 minutes.
