Sunflower oatmeal cookies

It's been awhile since I've baked any sweets, so I scoured the internet and found this interesting recipe from Sparkpeople.com:

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sunflower butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
12 tsp baking soda
1 1/4 cups rolled oats
3/4 cup whole wheat flour

1. In a large bowl, combine the butter and sunflower butter. Add the sugar and egg. Mix until very smooth. Add vanilla, salt, baking soda, oatmeal, and flour and stir well.
2. Add spoonfuls of dough on an ungreased cookie sheet, and flatten with a fork. Bake at 350 degrees for about 12 minutes.

Using sunflower butter instead of peanut butter seems to give the cookies lighter nutty taste, and is great for those who aren't big fans of peanut butter!

  1. I wonder if your readers would benefit from a good resource for cookie dough fundraising ideas? There are tons of different cookie dough fundraisers to consider. But not all cookie dough fundraising programs are the same.
