Chunky Chocolate Cookies


  • 1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar/brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup Del Monte sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 180C.
  • In a mixing bowl, add coconut sugar, coconut oil, vanilla and egg and stir until well combined.
  • Add the flours, baking soda and baking powder and whisk everything together until crumbly but wet. Fold in the sunflower seeds and chocolate chips.
  • Scoop out 1 1/2 tbsp of the dough and roll to form multiple little balls. Place on a baking mat and gently flatten the dough with your hand. Bake for 10-12 mins until golden brown. Let the cookies cool on the baking mat for 10 minutes before taking them out of the oven and then place them on a cooling rack.
