    There is a natural chemical in sunflower seeds that, when exposed to certain baking conditions and baking soda turns it green when it's fully cooled. It's not harmful, but it can be scary if you are unaware.

    These were pretty good! I used a 1/4 cup of coconut sugar, agave instead of granulated sugar and earth balance butter and they came out like tender drop cookies. They held the shape of my tablespoon dropper. They didn't flatten out at all, and that's just how I like them :).

    At the risk of having my American citizenship revoked, I think I like these better than peanut butter cookies. I've been looking for recipes using sunflower seed butter since I bought a jar of it at Trader Joe's last year. A few raw sunflower seeds were sprinkled on the cookies before baking. I'll be baking a batch of these again very soon! PS I skipped the dough chilling part and used a cookie scoop. No problem! Thanks for posting the recipe.
