A chewy cookie with the goodness of sunflower seeds, wheat germ and dried cranberries to make a cookie that tastes like a trail mix bar.

These cookies travel well. You can substitute as you wish. I used chocolate chips and raisins instead of dried cranberries. Next time I'll try some hemp seeds and maybe pumpkin seeds with the sunflower seeds because at a local restaurant they sell a very popular cookie similar to these that has chocolate chips and hemp seeds. They are a healthy treat on the road.


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. In a medium size bowl combine flour, Baking Powder, Baking Soda and salt together mixing well
  3. In a large bowl cream together butter and sugar until butter dissolves totally with sugar and forms a smooth paste
  4. Add eggs one at a time beating with an electric hand mixer on medium speed until eggs form a creamy mixture
  5. Slowly add dry ingredients to creamy mixture beating with mixer on medium speed until flour is fully incorporated
  6. Stir in dried cranberries, wheat germ and sunflower seeds and distribute evenly throughout the dough
  7. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper 2 inches apart
