Double or triple this little recipe and keep these yummy treats on hand. Keep them at room temperature in a tightly sealed container and crunch away at will! Use as a snack or sprinkle on salads, fruit, or sweet potatoes. This recipe is from the National Sunflower Association. Enjoy!

Simple but oh so good. I made these for a snack tonight. I used roasted salted seeds and Splenda brown sugar blend so I only used a teaspoon of it. I really enjoyed these.
