"A sweet oatmeal cookie with crunchy toasted sunflower seeds. This cookie is a family favorite. It calls for coconut, but I like them better without the coconut." — TOYBEME

roasted and salted sunflower seeds
Light, buttery, crispy, crackly, chewy, pretty and delicious all describe this cookie. I used chocolate covered, candy coated sunflower seeds and the optional coconut which made these especially pretty and different. I also added 1/2 teaspoon of salt to heighten flavor. I refrigerated my dough about an hour, used a small cookie scoop not bothering to flatten them at all, and found they spread just the right amount - not too flat, not too poofy. Nice balance of flavors between the oatmeal, sunflower seeds and coconut. I would have to call this a nearly perfect cookie. I dare you to eat just one!
These were okay, but it could be b/c I used lowfat butter and Splenda in them. I might try again but I will try it with the real stuff.
I made these cookies with whole wheat flower and they turned out great! I also left out the coconut. I brought them to work and they were a hit!
Yum...I love sunflower seeds and oatmeal cookies and this is a great mixture of both...I went a bit further I added mini chocolate chips and turned them into a bar cookie...it is a great easy way to get a great cookie and takes less time...Baked approx 20 minutes...depends on your oven. Baked the bar cookie on a extra large professional bakers sheet and covered with aluminum foil, inverted when cool..and peeled off the alumimun foil...lots of bars..THANKS!
These are great! 4 stars because they are a little on the dry side. I feel like they could use some olive oil, more butter, or something? I added 1 cup raisins & 1 cup very finely chopped sunflower seeds. I used Amish vanilla extract, which gives it a nice rich flavor. My children love these and I don't feel as guilty about the sugar and fat when the "healthy" ingredients far outway the "unhealthy". Sunflower seeds and whole oats are so beneficial to our health, and I think most parents would find it hard to get their child to eat a handful of sunflower seeds alone! Great recipe. Will make again, next time adding some extra virgin olive oil.
excellent! I used salted roasted sunflower seeds and they add such a delicious and different crunch. The second batch I made I added m&ms. I can see all sorts of yummy additions...all very good. Easy to make too.
I did not add coconut...so no comment there.
I did not have vanilla so I added almond extract with gave the cookie another layer of nutty flavor! YUM.
Then I experimented....
I made some plain (my husband will love)
I made some with chocolate chips -- they are good
I made some with butterscotch chips - fabulous
I made some with raisins - awesome.
What a GREAT recipe! Thanks.
Many people tried these cookies and everyone thought they were awesome! I used 1 c. whole wheat flour and added a bit of ground flax. Will make again for sure.
