    Ingredients

    • 2 cups raw, unsalted sunflower kernels, ground into flour (you'll need 240g of flour or use 240g of almond flour)
    • 1 cup (128g) superfine oat flour
    • 1 1/4 teaspoons cinnamon
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
    • 1 cup finely chopped pecans (120 g, + extra whole pecans for topping)
    • 1/2 cup (160g) pure maple syrup
    • 1/4 cup (80g) unsulphured molasses (not blackstrap)
    • 2 teaspoons (10g) maple extract (you can use vanilla, but the maple flavor will be much less pronounced)
    • You can sub the sunflower kernels for blanched almond flour (240g), if you prefer. This will make the batter a bit thicker so you will need to roll the dough into balls.
