These cookies are soooooo good!! And I love that they are good for you too!! I did modify just a little.... I used organic sucanat instead of the brown sugar, I didn't have wheat germ so I used some coconut flour in place of that....and Walmart was OUT of sunflower seeds, so I bought pumpkin instead. Also, I used agave nectar instead of the honey, just because I had some and wanted to use it up. I took them to the gym with me and both the ladies that tried them insisted on having the recipe. Thanks for a great cookie recipe. I will make these again and again!!
