  • 4 TBS unsalted butter (softened)
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 1 cup cranraisins
  • 3/4 cup macadamia nuts (chopped)
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chunks
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds


  • Add the butter, peanut butter, and sugars to a large bowl. Cream them together for a couple minutes until light and creamy.
  • Add in the eggs one at a time and beat until well blended.
  • In another bowl mix together the flour, oats, salt, cinnamon, and baking powder.
  • Alternate adding the milk, and the dry ingredients to the creamed butter mixture a little at a time, until it is all mixed together.
  • Stir in the vanilla and almond extract.
  • Add the cranraisins, macadamia nuts, chocolate, and sunflower seeds. And stir it into the dough until it is all mixed well together. (Your dough will be soft)
  • Cover the dough and set it in fridge for 2 hours and up to overnight to chill.
  • When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Drop your cookie dough onto your cookie sheet in 1 TBS sized balls, at least 2 inches apart.
  • Bake the cookies for 9-11 minutes, or until the cookies are set in the middle and the edges are golden.
  • Remove the pan from the oven and let sit the cookies cool on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes.
  • Transfer the cookies to a cooling rack to cool completely, or enjoy after a few minutes warm.
