sunflower seed cookie recipeAround the ol’ Interwebs, you will be seeing a lot of pie recipes today, it is #PieDay afterall. I like pie. A lot. I love the idea of the food community coming together to celebrate the ultimate baked good (in my humble opinion, of course). But I just didn’t have it together to make one and get it posted in time. I have no good excuse other than I just cannot get into my groove in the kitchen right now. I am not sure what the deal is, but I think that it may have something to do with the beach calling my name. In a few days, I know that I will be itching to cook or bake something, have no fear, you will be seeing new recipes here (thankfully, I banked a few before we left Kansas). But for now, I am going to enjoy the first day of summer. Today, the beach is calling. Happy Summer Solstice.

I have a whole board of pies if you are looking for one to make today. Just in case.

I picked up a bag of sunflower seed cookies at the grocery store and immediately was obsessed. I had to get them out of the house, because I would have eaten the whole bag. The only thing that I did not like about these cookies was the price tag. Crazy expensive. I found this post about being a food blogger and had to chuckle. I immediately ate these cookies and thought to myself, I can make these better and cheaper (#5 on Irvin’s list). And you know what? I did. These are even better than the cookies that I bought in the store. These are equally addicting. Crispy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. They have whole grains and sunflower seeds, so they are totally a health food, right?

    I never thought of using sunflower seeds in cookies….I think i will try this. Thanks!

  5. kankana says:

    That would give some nice salty kick. I love sunflower a lot but never really added in cookies.

  6. I’ve said this before, but your son is just so cute. I love your pictures! So, I’m a pretty big fan of oats and sunflower seeds and have never put sunflower seeds in anything baked before..this is a great idea! I bet your cookies have such a unique and delicious flavor. Your recipe looks simple and delicious, can’t wait to try it out!

      Thank you Julia! I think that he is pretty cute too. :) These were so good, that I made them three times in one week.

  7. Those look really awesome! I love a good homemade cookie! And I dont blame you for going to the beach! I would too :)

  8. I’ve never had sunflower seeds. I’ve seen them in various trail mixes at the store, I’ve seen them enrobed in colorful candy-chocolate coatings, and I’ve seen their shells lying around on the ground from when people spit them out, but I’ve never tried them. These cookies look amazing though. :) (I love me an oatmeal cookie!)

    I can’t wait to make these :)

  10. Wendy says:

    I plan to make these tomorrow. Crispy outside and chewy inside is the texture of choice at my house. If you made these three times in one week you probably can’t answer my question :) Any idea how long these might stay fresh in an air-tight container? I am thinking these would mail well in a care package. For research purposes, I will hide one or two and see how they taste in 4 or 5 days.

    • bakedbree says:

      I think that they would be great for a care package. I wrap 2 or 3 cookies in plastic wrap, then wrap the little packages in wrap and put them in a box. They should be great for at least a week.

  11. I love the photos! I didn’t have enough time to get a pie together either.

  12. Vickie says:

    these sound delicious :)

  13. Chrissy says:

    I just made these and they are fabulous. I don’t think I’m going to be eating anything else today! :-)

    • bakedbree says:

      I am so glad! I LOVE these cookies. I had to give mine away. Otherwise I would have eaten the entire batch.

  14. Tonia says:

    Hi Bree – discovered your blog today through Pinterest. I added several of your recipes to my boards and am looking forward to trying them. The Grace’s Sunflower cookies are to die for and love when Whole Foods is sampling them. Thank you for sharing your recipe and welcome to KS!

  15. Wendy says:

    My family really enjoyed these! Thank you. The crispy chewy texture was perfect and the brown sugar/ sunflower seed taste combination was special. I know you posted this in the summer but these cookies make great lunch box cookies. They are semi-healthy and are sturdy.

  16. michelle says:

    Made these for and with my preschooler who was learning the letter “S” and seeds. Wow are these delicious!

    I plan to try your recipe today but I do not see where you show the yeild of your recipe. How many cookies does this recipe make?

  19. Dorene Whatley says:

    I am making them now and my dough seems a bit drier than yours looks. I followed your recipe exactly but did add dried cranberries. It didn’t even stick to the mixing bowl. What should I add?
