Susan's notes for this recipe:
This recipe uses all natural ingredients, and no processed sugar. Whole wheat pastry flour can be found at health food stores, or you can substitute unbleached all-purpose flour, or regular whole wheat flour.

Preheat oven to 350°. Line cookie pans with parchment or silicone mats. Make sure butter is softened to room temperature.
Blend together the butter, honey or sorghum, eggs, and vanilla.
Stir together the flour, soda, and salt. Stir the dry ingredients into the creamed mixture. Fold in the oats, sunflower seeds, and coconut.
Drop by tablespoons 2" apart on prepared baking sheets. If desired, press about 1/2 teaspoon additional sunflower seeds on top of cookies as decoration, flattening cookies slightly.
Bake at 350° about 12-15 minutes, until golden brown. Allow to cool on pans about 3 minutes; then remove to wire rack to finish cooling.

Susan these sound very good and very healthy...I love honey and coconut and I just happen to have sunflower seeds. I may try these sometime this week.

Great - hope you like them. I have used a dark honey (sourwood, I think it was) mixed with the sorghum that I love to cook with.

oooh I would love these...I'm a big fan of sunflower seeds (as you can tell since I even put it in my meatloaf). Love oatmeal and coconut together too.
