These biscuits are gluten-free, if you use gluten-free oats flour. They are also dairy-free, grain-free and nut-free,but they taste so good even if I should say so myself. They also have a crispy-crunchy exterior and a soft-chewy interior. They are perfect with a cup of coffee, tea or a glass of milk.
I love nut butter biscuits but once in a while you just need to change it up. So, sunflower seed butter is creamy and rich like peanut butter or any other nut butter, making it the perfect substitution for any nut butters.
The best part about making these biscuits is that everything is made in one bowl, making clean up a breeze.
You can definitely use another nut butter instead of sunflower seed butter seeing that it can be a bit pricey. If you are feeling like making your own sunflower seed butter, I do have a recipe on my blog. It is a really quick and easy recipe to follow, and of course is a money saver. So give it a try!
