Sunflower seeds deserve special attention in this recipe. These mouth watering seeds are packed with vitamin E, along with magnesium and selenium. I also can’t fail to mention their excellent fatty acid profile. Sunflower seeds are loaded with Linoleic Acid (LA). This beautiful essential fatty acid supports cell membrane health, mitochondria health, supports a healthy immune system, and helps ward off inflammation.
These delicious cookies are an excellent way to get your bioactive lipids in. Keep them in the freezer to ensure you are protecting those delicate polyunsaturated fats! Enjoy!

I’ve made them, really great! I did change it up a bit.. For those of us patients that are on keto, would you happen to have a carb count?
You can plug this recipe into cronometer.com to get a carbohydrate content!
Thank you Justine! I give 5 stars to the first bread recipe. I can hardly wait to try these new recipes. Thanks so much Justine and Df. H!
