Granola with Kernels
Whether you're sitting at a baseball game "spittin' seeds" or using the sunflower oil in a favorite recipe, sunflower kernels and sunflower oil provide the means to a fun and healthy lifestyle.

  • Sprinkle on yogurt
  • Use with your favorite ice cream topping
  • Coat a frozen novelty
  • Top a salad for lunch
  • Pack a pita with salad and crunch
  • Toss with stir-fry vegetables
  • Top your favorite pasta dish
  • Use in baked goods such as bagels, muffins, multi-grain breads, carrot-sunflower cake, crackers and bars
  • Snack on caramel sunflower popcorn, sunflower trail mix, granola bars, sunflower date bars and cookies
  • Use in a sweet treat - try chocolate or white chocolate bars or bark or sunflower brittle
  • Break the fast with muesli, hot breakfast cereal, ready-to-eat cereals, breakfast bars and muffins.
