Variations for this recipe

There are lots of ways to modify these simple cookies. Feel free to play around based on taste, preference, or convenience!

First, this recipe is not very sweet. Think of it like dark chocolate, where you get that wonderful flavor without the sweetness taking over. However, you’re welcome to add more low-carb sweetener if you like. Just taste the recipe as you go and adjust until you find your perfect cookie.

Second, this recipe was written to be vegan-friendly and nut-free. However, if you don’t mind nuts, you could use any other nut butter in place of the sun butter. If you’re not vegan, you can also replace the coconut oil with butter if you prefer.

Don’t love sunflower seeds? Or don’t have any in the pantry right now? Chopped nuts like almonds or walnuts could easily be used instead.

Want even more chocolate? Add some sugar-free chocolate chips! I recommend folding them in after the hemp hearts and the coconut so the mixture has a little time to cool. Otherwise, the chips may melt in the warm cookie batter.

Storage

Your cookies can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. They’re best served cold, so go ahead and eat them right out of the fridge!

You can also store them in the freezer for 2-3 months. When you’re ready to enjoy, let them thaw in the fridge for at least 4 hours before eating.
