Yield: 14 cookies
Prep Time :10 minutes
Cook Time :11 minutes
Total Time :21 minutes


  • 4 tablespoons softened butter
  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chocolate covered sunflower seeds
  • 2 1/4 cups old fashioned oats


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 
  • Place butter, peanut butter, egg, brown sugar, and honey in a large mixing bowl. Use hand mixer to mix on medium speed for 1 minute 15 seconds. The mixture will be light and creamy.
  • Add vanilla, baking soda, and salt. Combine. 
  • Add chocolate chips, sunflower seeds, and oats. Stir with a spoon to fully combine and coat all ingredients. The dough will be wet. That's okay! You don't need to add more oats.
  • Use a cookie scoop or spoon, and place about a tablespoon of dough onto parchment lined cookie sheet. These are more like drop cookies. Do not try and use your hands to make round balls.
  • Bake for 11 minutes, until cookies are just set in the middle with brown edges.
