Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies with Chocolate Sunflower Seed Drops #OXOGoodCookies

Pin It
It's been awhile since I made cookies, but today I had a really good reason to bake.
I've partnered with OXO and the Cookies For Kids' Cancer campaign.

Cookies for Kids' Cancer was founded by two OXO employees inspired by their 2-year old
son's battle with cancer.  It is a national 501 (c)3 non-profit committed to raising funds for research to develop new, improved treatments for pediatric cancer, the #1 disease killer of children in the U.S.

OXO provided me with a fabulous Drop Cookie Set to bake my cookies.
Beginning in September, buy any specially marked OXO baking tools and 25 cents will be
donated towards Cookies for Kids' Cancer.
Look for this sticker at participating stores.

The last time I shopped at Trader Joe's this little package caught my eye.

Two of my favorite snacks wrapped up in one and pretty colors too!
Just the inspiration I needed for a new cookie recipe.

Here's what you will need to make my Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies with Chocolate
Sunflower Seed Drops.
(At the last minute I decided to add a few mini chocolate chips, not pictured)

I used a OXO nesting bowl and OXO silicone spatula to combine the oats, cinnamon
and baking soda.
Love OXO products!

The OXO cookie scoop makes perfectly shaped cookies every time!
After placing the scooped cookie dough on a baking sheet, I flattened them slightly
with the bottom of a drinking glass.

I was so happy with the way these cookies turned out!
Soft and chewy with a little crunch from the sunflower seeds.

Be a good cookie and look for the green sticker when shopping for OXO baking
tools this month.  You will be helping OXO to donate up to $100,000 to Cookies for Kids' Cancer!

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies
with Chocolate Sunflower Seed Drops

2/3 C rolled oats (not quick oats)
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. baking soda
1 large egg, slightly beaten
1 C smooth peanut butter
1/2 C brown sugar
1/4 C Chocolate Sunflower Seed Drops
1/4 C mini chocolate chips

In a medium OXO nesting bowl, combine oats, cinnamon and baking soda.
Set aside.
In another medium bowl, combine beaten egg, peanut butter and brown sugar with
an OXO silicone spatula until combined.  Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix just
until combined.  Fold in the chocolate sunflower seed drops and mini chocolate chips.
Chill dough for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line a large baking sheet with a Silpat or parchment paper.
Using an medium OXO cookie scoop, drop the cookie dough onto your prepared cookie sheet.
Using the bottom of a small drinking glass, slightly flatten each cookie.

Bake for 10-12 minutes.  Cookies will look underbaked, but that is alright.
Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet for about 10 minutes before placing them on a
wire rack to continue cooling.

Store cookies in an airtight container for up to 7 days or freeze up to 3 months.
Makes 14 cookies.
