Chia, Flax, and Sesame: Make Your Own Seed Blend

Visiting a friend recently, I noticed a canister on her kitchen counter marked seeds. Was she feeding the birds? As it turns out, she makes her own seed blend of flax, chia, sesame, and whatever else she has on hand to keep on the ready for topping oatmeal, yogurt and cereal. Why not try this in your kitchen?

Whether you’re partial to poppy or pumpkin seeds, putting together a blend helps add a crunchy boost to snacks and even salads and soups. Toast seeds for extra flavor and add nuts, dried fruit, or even crumbled graham crackers for added sweetness.
