Looking for a great on-the-go snack? These vegan, gluten-free Super Seedy Granola Bars are loaded with 4 kinds of seeds and are super healthy, via the Minimalist Baker. She starts with seeds, and lots of them! Seeds are an essential part of a plant-based diet. They’re like little nutritional powerhouses.
For instance, flax and chia seed are incredibly high in fiber and healthy fats, including Omega 3s.
Sunflower seeds are rich in vitamin E, magnesium and selenium – nutrients that protect virtually every square inch of our bodies.
And hemp seeds – the healthiest of the bunch – are a complete protein, loaded with Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, and contain all 19 essential amino acids, which are essential for optimum health.
