Nutrition Tip

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!
