Couldn't resist this recipe which was found in the Famous Name Brand Recipes cookbook 'WHOLE-GRAIN COOKING' -- A great addition to my cookie cookbook! Cooking time is an estimate, depending on how many cookies you have on each cookie sheet.
- 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup brown sugar, packed
- 2⁄3 cup granulated sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 pinch salt
- 2 cups old fashioned oats, uncooked
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 (12 ounce) bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup sunflower seeds
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F, & lightly grease cookie sheets OR line them with parchment paper.
- In large bowl, beat butter, sugars & eggs until light & fluffy.
- Beat in baking soda, vanilla & salt.
- Blend in oats & flours to make stiff dough.
- Stir in chocolate chips.
- Shape mounded teaspoonfuls of dough into balls.
- Roll balls in sunflower seeds.
- Place balls 2" apart on prepared cookie sheets.
- Bake 8-10 minutes or until firm, but DO NOT OVERBAKE!
- Leave on cookie sheets, & let cool 2 minutes, before transfering cookies to wire rack to cool completely.
These are yummy! I really like the WW flour add. I made 1/2 the recipe and had 30 decent little cookies! I didn't have sunflower seeds, so I did a 1/8 cup pumpkin seeds and just under 1/4 cup cranberries. I don't usually like cookies right from the oven (go figure...), but these I do! DH is just coming home now, these'll be a nice treat! Thanks for sharing!
I made these tonight and unfortunately barely got to taste them. I made 1/3 of the recipe but was too busy with my teething baby to enjoy them. They were very good. Thank you for posting. Made for Bevy Tag.
These are really good! I did cut back on the brown sugar and chocolate chips a bit, just because we usually like things slightly less sweet. I also used pepitas instead of sunflower seeds, with the chef's blessing of course. I also used Smart Balance, and I refrigerated the dough to make the chips nice and firm after baking. My only complaint is that they hardened significantly the second day despite being in an airtight container. This could be the Smart Balance or the cookie itself, so I can't complain too much. The flavor is still superb, anyway. Thanks for the post; I will be making them again. Made for Went to Market.
