A clever twist on traditional cookies! These hearty cookies feature fat-free butter popcorn, brown sugar, toasted wheat germ, oatmeal, coconut flakes, raisins, and sunflower seeds. The recipe is so easy to put together that you'll be able to make four dozen cookies in under 20 minutes. It doesn't require any fancy equipment, and it's also very versatile. You can omit the coconut if you'd like, or use pumpkin seeds instead of sunflower seeds, or try dried dates, prunes, or cranberries instead of the raisins. These cookies are also a fun treat to whip up on movie night as opposed to serving regular popcorn.
