One of the dietary changes I made since becoming a dietitian is I’m eating more ‘bird food’. Seeds are tiny, but the impacts on our body are massive.
Benefits of seeds
Here is a Nuts & Seeds biscuit recipe to try. You can either eat them plain with your cheese or favourite dips, or brush with some maple syrup or honey on top to make them sweet.
- 240g nuts and seeds of personal choice (I use almonds, linseed/flaxseeds, chia seeds, hemp seeds, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, coconut shreds)
- 1 egg white
- 2tb maple syrup or honey (optional)
- Mix all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl
- Add egg white and stir and combine well
- Shape into 8 patties on a lined baking tray
- Bake 20-25 mins at 150 degrees until lightly golden
- Brush maple syrup or honey on top if you want some sweet taste (optional) or enjoy the plain cracker with cheese or your favourite dips
Great for a snack and easy to take on the go!
