3 Reasons to Eat Sunflower Seed Cookies

Our sunflower seed cookies not only make a delightful treat but complement your cravings with naturally delicious ingredients. 

When compared to a classic sandwich-style cookie, (you know, the kind where a generous amount of crème is stuffed between two chocolate cookies) sunflower seed cookies like ours at Grace’s Best do not conform to a pattern of tradition. And that’s the thing we love most about our cookies: there’s nothing traditional about them!

But why bother choosing Grace’s Best sunflower seed cookies over that of a leading brand? 

1. We’re family-owned and based locally in Kansas City, MO.

In 1992, Grace’s grandmother, Margaret, forged a new path and began selling the cookies that her loved ones in the Kansas City area simply couldn’t get enough of. With an idea all her own and the support of her family, she started a lasting tradition using a non-traditional recipe. Since then, her son has taken over the company to honor his mother’s legacy and bring her sunflower seed cookies recipe to taste buds that crave a different kind of snack.

Plus, we love the local scene and supporting the small grocers that carry our cookies!

2. Grace’s Best Cookies are made with naturally delicious ingredients.

Artificial preservatives and artificial flavors make no sense in our cookies! We only include pronounceable and recognizable ingredients so that what you see on the label is what you taste. Take a peek at the ingredients we use in our sunflower seed cookies – ones you can find right in your own kitchen:

  • Rolled oats
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Sweet cream butter (milk)
  • Brown sugar
  • Enriched unbleached flour
  • Sugar
  • Eggs
  • Baking soda
  • Vanilla extract

On the other hand, the ingredients for a basic sandwich cookie tell a completely different story! What are you familiar with on this list?

  • Unbleached Enriched Flour (Wheat Flour
  • Niacin
  • Reduced Iron
  • Thiamine Mononitrate {Vitamin B1}
  • Riboflavin {Vitamin B2}, Folic Acid)
  • Sugar
  • Palm And/Or Canola Oil
  • Cocoa (Processed with Alkali)
  • High Fructose Corn Syrup
  • Leavening (Baking Soda And/Or Calcium Phosphate)
  • Salt
  • Soy Lecithin
  • Chocolate
  • Artificial Flavor

High fructose corn syrup can link to major health risks; that’s why it’s often discouraged in high amounts. The last ingredient is simply listed as “artificial flavor,” meaning that some of the flavor comes from a chemical compound rather than its actual ingredients!

3. Our sunflower seed cookies contain less sugar and sodium than the leading sandwich cookie brand.

Let’s look at the nutrition facts. We compared a six-pack of sandwich cookies to a 1 oz. pack of Grace’s Best Cookies that contains 5 cookies. Prepackaged, both are convenient for snacking with a controlled serving. Here’s what we found:

Next time you’re craving a sweet, crunchy snack, look at the label and then decide. We encourage everyone to pay careful attention to what goes into their bodies! Remember, even our sunflower seed cookies are still cookies, so snack wisely!
