I consider them healthy, so long as you don’t eat too many and they’re not roasted in oils and salted and blah blah blah.

They’re good for your cholesterol, IIRC. 

Wiki says:  In addition to linoleic acid (an essential fatty acid), sunflower seeds are also an excellent source of dietary fiber, protein, Vitamin E, B Vitamins, and minerals such as potassium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, selenium,  calcium and zinc Additionally, they are rich in cholesterol-lowering phytosterols.

Most nuts (unsalted) are healthy in moderation; you can always have too much of a good thing. A small handful is fine.
