Tell me honestly, do these look amazing?  Even before I tried one, these looked amazing to me and now that I have tried them… Let’s just say I’m hooked.  These incredible cookies are packed with sunflower seeds, pepitas, chia seeds, dried cranberries, oats, chocolate chips…  Oh, and they’re 100% whole grain and vegan so they’re dairy and egg free.  Amazing, right?

Sadly, I can’t take credit for this one, I just couldn’t help sharing these with you though!  The original recipe comes from Planet Organic Market where this is their most popular cookie(or was, in 2009).  They must be incredible to sell so many of them!

I’ve made a few small adaptations, some of which I got from my neighbor who first shared some cookies with me(thank you!!) and some that I tried out myself.  These are easily my favorite cookies now 🙂

While these are THE best cookies fresh from the oven, they do freeze well and they last in a sealed container on the counter for a few days too.  I’m telling you though, plan on eating one fresh from the oven.  The edges are crispy crunchy like granola clusters and the inside is soft and warm but still dense and chewy with melty chocolate chips throughout.  Yum!

Don’t let the recipe fool you when it says it only makes 24.  I challenge anyone to eat 3, like I have them stacked in the picture.  One and a half is my limit, even on an empty stomach!  I’d say you can easily make 48 – 60 “normal” sized cookies from this recipe although I haven’t tried it so I’m not sure how you’d have to adjust the baking time.  If and when I try it in the future I’ll update this post.

Look at all those seeds!  Enjoy, and have a great weekend!
