Orange Oatmeal Cookies

Here is a wonderful variant of the good ol’ oatmeal cookie.

Sunflower seeds are a good source of vitamins and minerals and add an extra crunch to these delicious morsels.

Orange Oatmeal Cookies


  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats (135gr)
  • 3/4 cups sunflower seeds (130gr)
  • 3/4 cup flour (90gr)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder (2gr)
  • 10 tbl butter (140gr)
  • zest of 1 orange
  • 2 tbl orange juice (60ml)
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar (150gr)
  • 2 tbl maple syrup or honey (60ml)


In a big bowl, mix oats, sunflower seeds, flour and baking powder until well combined.

In a saucepan, heat butter, sugar, orange zest, orange juice and maple syrup or honey over low heat, stirring constantly until butter and sugar are melted.

Pour butter mix over the dry ingredients and mix well.

Grease baking sheet(s) or line with parchment paper.  Preheat oven to 350ºF (that’s 175ºC).

Place heaping teaspoons of dough on the baking sheet, leaving ample space between the cookies.

Bake 7-10 minutes, depending on how big your cookies are.  Let cool on the baking sheet for a short time, then transfer to a cooling rack to harden and crisp.

    1. And I am sure you folks will like them. The sunflower seeds make for wonderful crunch, and the orange fits very well as well. Ours disappeared in record time, so if you need to store them, put them in a tightly closed tin and keep them on the highest shelf! 😉
