Tips for Making Chocolate Chip Cookies with Seed Flour:

  • You can use any combo of sunflower and pumpkin seeds you would like. I’ve found it works well with either or both. Unsalted tastes best in my opinion, but in a pinch salted seeds can be used. Just be certain to omit the added salt in the recipe.

  • I haven’t tested it yet myself, but I do think a gluten-free all purpose blend would work well to replace brown rice and tapioca flours in this recipe. If you try it, let me know!

  • The optional acacia fiber or psyllium husk lends itself to a slightly chewier cookie that also stays moist longer when left out. Not necessary at all, but simply adds a little extra something.

  • I love the addition of cinnamon to chocolate chip cookies. I think it enhances the chocolate flavor in cookies, but it certainly is not necessary! Just a personal preference that you may find that you like, too.

  • For sugar-free chocolate chip cookies, I recommend this sweetener to replace the maple syrup, and these chocolate chips.

  • If you do not follow a vegan or dairy-free diet, melted butter or ghee can be used in place of oil.

  • These cookies keep well lightly covered at room temperature for up to 48 hours.
