The Summer of Love Cookies!

My niece sent me a recipe for Sunflower Seed Cookies. I decided to adapt the recipe and make it my own.
Here's my interpretation of Jennifer's Sunflower Seed Cookies.
I still consider this to be the perfect Hippy in the Kitchen Cookie. It's reminiscent of what we made in the 60's and early 70's. We ate a lot of Sunflower Seeds!

The Summer of Love Cookies

Here's what you'll need:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
A Sheet Pan lined with Parchment Paper

1 C Butter, softened
1 C Honey
2 Eggs
1 tsp Vanilla
1 1/2 C Flour
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Baking Soda
3 C Quick Oats
1 C Toasted Sunflower Seeds
1/2 C Shredded Coconut

In a Stand Mixer with a paddle attachment:
Beat for 3 minutes.

In a medium mixing bowl, sift together:
Baking Soda
Add this to the wet ingredients.
Beat just until combined.

Fold in by hand:
Sunflower Seeds
Coconut Flakes

Use a 1 1/2" Cookie Scoop.
Drop the dough 2" apart on a Sheet Pan.
Bake 12 - 15 minutes.

Remove the pan to a rack and cool for 5 minutes.
Transfer the cookies to a rack to cool completely.

Peace in the Kitchen!
