Crunchy Seed Sprinkle

Seeds are such a good source of nutrition! The seeds in this recipes are powerhouses of minerals, vitamins, protein, fiber and nutrients. Plus, they taste really good.

You can use any kinds of seeds or nuts but here is a good mix to get you started.

Add this sprinkle on top of sliced fruits, yogurt, oatmeal, cereal, ice cream, toast with nut butter or just eat it by itself!

Crunchy Seed Sprinkle

1/3cup raw shelled pumpkin seeds

1/3 cup sunflower seeds

1/3 cup sliced almond

¼ c sesame seeds

3 tablespoons pure maple syrup

1/4 cup shredded coconut

¼ cup chia seeds

Kosher salt if needed to taste

Toast pumpkin seeds, almonds and sunflower seeds in a dry medium skillet over medium-low heat, tossing often, until golden, about1- 2 minutes. Add sesame and fennel seeds; toast, tossing often, until golden brown, about 1 minute more.

Mix in syrup; cook, stirring often, until clumps begin to form, about 1 minute. Remove from heat; stir in coconut and chia seeds. Season with salt if needed. Transfer to a parchment or wax paper-lined baking sheet; let cool.

Other great seeds to include are hemp seed or flax seed meal. You could also add 2 tsp fennel, aniseed, caraway, or cumin seeds but be aware these will give a strong flavor.
