Sunflower Seed Cookies

These are not your typical cookie. They have no granulated sugar, only brown.While they are sweet, they are not as sweet as most cookies. They have a delicious nutty flavor. The teen and I concocted this recipe based off several old recipes we found. Our only problem was, we couldn’t stop eating the batter while they cooked! The teen and the husband absolutely loved them! Bonus, they were super easy to make!
