My new version of granola without the carbs and sugar! Simple & delicious. Gluten-free. Sugar free. Yes!
Though I do sometimes simply eat a spoonful out of the jar, I'm loving adding a heaping tablespoon to celery sticks with almond butter or to a little yogurt with a few slices of apple or banana.
The mix in this recipe is with sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, buckwheat, flaxseed and sesame.
Why seeds you may ask? From what I've read about seeds they are extremely nutritional because they contain all the starting materials necessary to develop into complex plants. Some of this goodness includes: essential fatty acids, digestible protein, vitamins A, B, C and E, minerals calcium, magnesium, potassium, zinc, iron, and antioxidents. What's not to love?
They're great to have around for healthy snacking. And it's super easy to make! You can play with the amounts of cinnamon and salt to your taste as well as different combinations of seeds.
