This was a very different type of cookie. Nutty and savory-sweet. I really liked it. I made a fwe changes due to the other comments. I used half of the baking soda, added a half cup more of coconut and sunflower seeds, 1/4 tsp of salt and also an egg (which hlped bind the batter better)



I found the baking soda a bit overmuch for me personally, imho. If I did the recipe again I would use a half or quarter teaspoon baking soda instead, with the sugar changed to brown sugar to balance the alkali/acid ratio.



I agree that the baking soda was a little too much. They had a great flavor otherwise, but they were pretty crumbly. I used half white sugar and half brown sugar. I would probably make these again. :)
