Honey-Flax Granola Clusters
Recipe by Catherine Smith
Flax? Flaxseed? Flax meal? No matter what you call it, flaxseed is a superseed that you should be incorporating into your diet. Flaxseed can be eaten whole, crushed or cold-pressed. Crushing flaxseeds aids digestibility and allows your body to capitalize on the omega-3-fatty acids, proteins and fiber this seed packs.
