I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies with Salted Sunflower Seeds

This is not your run of the mill PB cookie. Not even close.
They are beautifully moist, but not cookie-doughy. 

1 cup peanut butter (I used creamy but chunky would work)
2 tbsps cocoa powder
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
2/3 cup oats
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup finely shredded coconut
2/3 cup chocolate chips
1/3 cup salted sunflower seeds

In a large mixer bowl combine the peanut butter, cocoa, brown sugar, vanilla and eggs.

Mix together the oats and baking soda, then add it to the PB mixture. 

Now fold in the coconut and chocolate chips. Roll the cookie dough into balls.
These were about 1 1/2 " balls.  Put the sunflower seeds in a shallow dish and tap the top of the ball into them.

Place on a lined baking sheet and press down lightly to make sure the sunflower seeds aren't going anywhere.

I made 29 cookies.

Bake at 350 F for 10 minutes

Look at all that good stuff in there!
Perfect with a tall glass of cold milk!
