In a large bowl, combine 3/4 cup sugar, 3/4 cup brown sugar (I used Turbinado raw cane sugar for all of my sugar, I’ve also used Coconut Sugar, whatever sugar substitute you use, Maple syrup is BOMB with this too), and 1/4 cup butter until creammmmmy, as in, the sugar is dissolving and noticeable color changes are happening (room temperature butter, essential)
Add 2 eggs, 1 1/2 tsp vanilla, and 1 1/4 tsp bakin soda, mix that shit up.
Add 1 cup peanut butter and mix some more.
Stir in 3 cups Trader Joes Rolled Oats, 6 ozs Chocolate chips (I used white this time! LOVE!) and about 1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds.
Stir in 1/2 cup (chopped) Shredded Sweetened coconut (I used TJ’s sweetened coconut pieces, they be yumm)
Spoon onto lightly greased cookie sheet 2 inches apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes. My magic number was 12.
Give em about 2 minutes to cool before even attempting to remove them from the cookie sheet, so mushy soft and just golden brown around the edges. mmmmh.
They taste like they were sent from the Greek Gods. fuck.
I made too many. Around 36-42.
