Mock Peanut Butter Cookies (aka Sunflower Butter Cookies)

If you know anything about me,
you know I love peanut butter cookies!
My mom would make them from time to time
and suprise me with my very own tin of cookies :)
Yes, I'm 50 years old and my mom still bakes me what? :)
Since pretty much every ingredient in regular peanut butter cookies
is on my "poison" list these days,
I've been wanting to find a replacement.
So today, the Mock PB Cookie was born!

Mock Peanut Butter Cookies (Revised 3/2/12)
G/F, Casein Free, Corn Free, Sugar Free

1/2 cup homemade Sunflower Seed Butter (find recipe here)
1 cup Coconut Crystals (sugar alternative)
2 free range eggs
1/2 tsp g/f pure vanilla
1/4 cup Coconut flour (sifted)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix together sunflower seed butter, coconut crystals, eggs, and vanilla. Stir in sifted coconut flour.

I use the back of a spoon and sift it directly into the bowl.

The batter will be runny but it will thicken a bit after a few minutes.
I bought this "whoopie pie" pan at Michaels with my 50% off coupon.
It's made by Wilton and works great for lots of g/f cookies.
It gives them a nice uniform shape.
Use the backside of a slightly wet spoon to shape the cookies into nice flat rounds.
Bake for 15 minutes. Makes 1 dozen.
Cool on wire rack. 
Try not to eat them all in one sitting :)
