Reviews for Sunflower Popcorn Bars
"Just did a test run of this recipe and the syrup is just the right amount. Plan to make with my youth cooking class this month. Love that it incorporates sunflower seeds, just different enough, but most kiddos (and adults) will enjoy!"
"This was easy and good. I was looking for a way to use up sunflower seeds, now I will buy them just for this recipe. If you like honey and peanut butter this is a good one. I even wrote it in my special recipe box."
