Sunflower seeds have long been known as a healthy snack – good for quick, sustainable energy. They’ve been popular in granola and as a salad topping, and even raw, where you have to bite into the hull and spit it out to enjoy the sunflower seed within. Now they’re showing up more and more in various snacks, like these power bites.

 

And why not? Sunflower seeds are an affordable nutrition powerhouse, delivering 20 percent or more of the recommended daily value of protein, fiber, all the B vitamins, and vitamin E in just one serving. They’re also high in minerals, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, iron, and zinc.
