Sunflower Seed & Chocolate Chip Cookies

Adina Elena Vladulescu
Chocolate chip cookies are my go-to favorite dessert or sweet snack. These cookies have a chewy middle that will soften your heart with a few touches of crispiness from the sunflower seeds. You will fall right into the nostalgia of childhood bake sales. After a few simple steps and a quick bake, the only thing you’ll be missing is a glass of cold milk or some frothy coffee.
