These candy and chocolate-coated sunflower seeds make for a fun, edible harvest decoration. Eat them as is or add them to your cookies for a healthier chocolate chip alternative. As well as being delicious, sunflower seeds are very nutritious; one handful packs 90% of your daily vitamin E needs, they're full of magnesium and B1 vitamins and they help lower your cholesterol.
The Boston Globe said, "Indulge your sweet tooth without (too much) guilt. Sunflower seeds contain unsaturated fats, protein and fiber -- all things that are good for you, regardless of which diet of the day you follow."
