This time of year it is easy to feel like a hungry bear before hibernation. As the weather gets colder, we look for those comfort foods that help us feel comfy and cosy. If you need a healthy option to reach for, these seedy, crunchy clusters are quick and delicious. 

fall seed clusters

They are an autumn-favourite of our very own Rockyvillian, Sue. Sue has been with the company since the beginning and now runs our Workshop Tours. In her spare time, she loves to explore new recipes and play around in the kitchen, often finding herself hosting and cooking up delicious meals for her friends and family. So when we asked her to share a recipe, she couldn't be more excited to send us this one. 

"You can eat it as a cluster or break it up to use in salads or your morning yogourt or oatmeal. I just love it!"
- Sue
