  • Author: Alexis
  • Cook Time: 15 mins
  • Total Time: 15 mins
  • Yield: 12 1x



  • 3/4 cup sunflower seed butter (or almond butter)
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 heaping cup grated summer squash with water squeezed out (about one small summer squash)
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. (You can also make bars instead of cookies by baking the batter in an 8×8 baking dish for about 30 minutes.)
  3. Combine all ingredients except squash and optional chocolate chips in a large bowl and stir together until very thoroughly combined.
  4. Place grated squash between paper towels and squeeze out excess water. Fold into batter with chocolate chips, if using. The batter will be very moist and not cookie-like.
  5. Drop dough onto baking sheet (about two tablespoons of dough per cookie for 12 cookies total).
  6. Bake for 15-17 minutes. Cool on a baking sheet for about 10 minutes and then transfer cookies to a cooling rack to cool completely.
