These were so good! Keagan and I baked some Sunflower Seed Butter cookies yesterday. These are free of many major allergens, though if you can’t eat egg, you would have to use a substitute.
I pieced together a few recipes to try and make a gluten free peanut free alternative to a peanut butter cookie. Here’s what I came up with:

1 cup sunflower seed butter
3/4 cup evaporated cane juice (or you could use basic sugar)
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla

Bake at 350 for about 10 min.

These were seriously so delicious. A lot of allergen free alternative are good, but can leave you wanting the real thing. I liked these better than “real” peanut butter cookies.

Keagan had a lot of fun helping. Or should I say stirring the sunbutter, stealing the spoon and running to the living room to hide.


He really did enjoy the whole process. I always try to distract him when I cook and I know everyone always says to include the kids and how much they learn from it, but it just always stressed me out. I realized yesterday it was no big deal and was more fun for both of us. I see a lot of baking together in our future.

Eden kept herself busy with some ribbon while we baked. She’s not quite ready for baking 🙂

Naptimes’s over, so this blog is too 😉

Nine Months

Keagan turned nine months old yesterday! That seems so significant, maybe because that’s how long it took to “cook” him. Now he’s been “out” longer than he was “in” me! Wow! He’s going to be one in no time! My baby soon won’t be a baby anymore! Sadness! But it is fun to watch him grow up! He is trying really hard to walk. I have a feeling he is going to be an early walker.  Uh-oh!

We spent the day yesterday watching football and celebrating the birthday of the son of some friends. It was a nice, relaxing kind of day. (Even if the Seahawks lost!) When we got home, I finally broke in the bread machine I bought at the goodwill awhile back. It works! Today we have fresh baked bread and it was beyond easy to make.  Maybe I will get this home-maker stuff down after all 😉
