Easy one-bowl trail mix cookies! Healthy, gluten free, dairy free, and nut free!


  • 1 cup sunflower butter
  • 1 cup unsweetened finely shredded coconut flakes
  • 1/2 cup dairy free chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup dates, pits removed and chopped (about 45 dates)
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper (note: you may end up needing a second baking sheet).
  2. In a large bowl, add all of the ingredients and mix until everything is well combined. You can alternatively use a standing mixer to do this as well.
  3. Scoop out the dough into generous tablespoon-sized portions, leaving a little room between each cookie. Use your hands to shape the dough and slightly flatten the dough (but not too much).
  4. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until cookies are set. Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes before enjoying. Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days on the counter, or in the freezer after that. Note: sometimes sunflower butter turns green when baked- if this happens don’t worry! It’s natural and nothing to be worried about!
