Sunflower Almond Cookies







     Riffling thru my cabinets I came across a bag of Sunflower Seeds and for some reason I found myself throwing a lot of things into a bowl ending with a plate full of amazing cookies.  Does that happen to you too...or is it just me!?  ...don't answer that...  But, if you feel a little restless I think you should definitely give this one a try, I thoroughly enjoyed baking and EATING these hearty little spheres.  Each of the 12 ~1oz cookies are only 58 calories, 1.3g net carbs and 3.2g protein.  Nothing guilty about these treasures!  :)

Ingredients for 12~1oz cookies:
1 Tablespoon Nutiva Buttery Coconut Oil, softenend
1 large Egg
1 scoop Quest Salted Caramel Protein Powder
1/3 cup 30 cal/cup Blue Diamond Almond Breeze, plus 1 Tablespoon
1/3 cup Swerve Granular Erythritol
1/4 cup Nutiva Coconut Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
Heavy dash Almond Extract
Dash Cinnamon
1/4 cup Sesame Seeds, plus 1 Tablespoon
1 square Lily's Premium Stevia Sweetened Dark Chocolate Baking Bar

     Stir together Coconut Oil, Egg, 1 scoop Protein Powder, 1/3 cup Almond Breeze, Granular Erythritol, Coconut Flour, Baking Powder, Almond Extract, Cinnamon, and 1/4 cup Sesame Seeds til well blended.  Divide into 12 equal balls and place on Silpat lined cookie sheet, press slightly down and bake at 375 for 10 minutes.  They may seem under done but will continue to cook as they cool, trust me.  Meanwhile add extra Tablespoon Almond Breeze and square of Chocolate to microwave for 12 seconds, stir to combine when melted and cool while cookies are baking.  Once cookies are done and cooled, add chocolate to baggie, snip corner and drizzle on cookies, garnish wet chocolate with remaining Tablespoon of seeds.  Enjoy  :)
