These cookies are a tradition in my Kansas hometown. Sometimes I add chopped nuts, raisins or dates.
- 1/2 cup canola oil
- 1/2 cup honey
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup sunflower kernels
- In a large bowl, combine the oil, honey, eggs and vanilla. Combine the flour and salt; gradually add to honey mixture and mix well.(dough will be very soft). Stir in sunflower kernels.
- Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls 2 in. apart onto greased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool. Yield: 4 dozen.
