Gluten Free Sunbutter Cookie Recipe

I got the following recipe off Sunbutter's website and just tweaked it a bit for my family's tastes - in that we eat cinnamon and nutmeg is just about everything.  These are a tasty alternative to a classic peanut butter cookie.

Keyword Cookie, gluten free
Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time-ish 20 minutes


  • 1 Cup Sunbutter
  • 1 Cup butter softened
  • 1 Cup of raw sugar succanat or coconut sugar
  • 2 fresh eggs
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • pinch cardamom
  • 2 1/2 Cups flour


  1. Pre-heat oven to 375F/190C
  2. Cream Sunbutter and butter together until smooth.
  3. Add sugar and eggs, mixing thoroughly; add vanilla and mix well.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix together soda, salt, spices and flour until well blended.
  5. Slowly add dry mix to wet mix, blending about a cup at a time until fully mixed.
  6. Using your hands, work bits of dough into roughly 1 1/2" balls.  These you can roll in sugar for a classic look, if you like.
  7. Evenly space balls on a cookie sheet and carefully flatten with a fork, criss-crossing for a classic peanut butter cookie look.
  8. Bake for 10-12 minutes.

Recipe Notes

These will tastes fabulous on their own, but you can also depress raisins, dried cherries, chocolate chips or cacao nibs into their tops before baking.  Similarly, a commercial chocolate candy like a Hershey's Kiss would work.  I really like the cacao nibs for a tangy breakfast cookie.


BUT you can also put frosting on them.  The answer to every cookie question should be: put frosting on it.
