Chocolate Sunflower Seed Cookies
It’s time for me to send a care package up to my son at the university… His care packages almost always include fresh baked cookies, maybe a loaf of quick bread, or a variety of tea or cocoa. This time, he’ll get homemade Chocolate Sunflower Seed Cookies and a DVD… Not bad for being away from home for little over a week!
My Sunflower Seed Cookies are made with extra dark cocoa powder, white chocolate chips and sunflower seed butter. They taste faintly reminiscent of chocolate peanut butter cookies but with the sunflower seed butter twist. They are easy to make and they ship well. Enjoy! Tessa

- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup sunflower seed butter

In a medium sized mixing bowl cream together the white sugar, brown sugar, sunflower seed butter, egg, and vanilla extract. In a separate bowl mix together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until blended. Add the white chocolate chips.
