1 pinch Salt
1/3 cup hulled Sunflower seeds
2 tsp Vanilla extract, pure
2 tbsp Whey protein powder, unflavoured (optional)


In a large bowl combine butter/oil and brown sugar. Beat in eggs and vanilla.

In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder, flax, cinnamon/chai, brewers yeast and protein powder. Add the dry mixture to the wet.

In a separate bowl combine oats, chocolate chips, raisins and seeds. Add this to the cookie dough and mix until just combined.

(If using coconut oil, preheat oven to 400 then turn down to 350 when you put the cookies. This is to try to minimize spread.)
