Super-Seed Cereal Bark

Cereal is not something I consider healthy, but I am all for balance and enjoying treats from time to time and Love Grown Foods has healthier cereal options that are great for creating cereal treats or simply treating yourself to a sweet snack.  Their cereals are all non-GMO, vegan, gluten-free and corn-free.  They are made from a blend of navy beans, lentils and garbanzo beans.  They also offer hot cereals and granola.

This Super-Seed Cereal Bark combines Love Grown Foods Strawberry Power O’s  with a blend of seeds, nut butter and dark chocolate for a healthier treat that’s not just filled with sugar, but provides a dose of nutrients and healthy fats as well.  Plus, it’s super easy to make, which is always a plus!
