Our daughter Saren created this recipe after not being able to find a store-bought trail mix she liked. It has become not only a favorite for her family and our extended family but also a staple at all the Power of Moms retreats she puts on - it was served alongside fresh fruits and veggies during breaks and is always a big hit. It's much lower in fat and calories than many trail mixes but has a lot of protein and Omega 3's and other good stuff. You can buy the individual ingredients packaged at most grocery stores, but it's cheapest and easiest if you can buy them at a good bulk food place.
1 1/2 cups raw unsalted sunflower seeds
