I enjoyed a wonderful Mother’s Day this past weekend with my family on our annual hike in Gloucester, MA. Even though our morning hike got rained out, these Granola Smart Hearts were a delicious afternoon treat shared with friends at the neighborhood playground — everyone loved them!
Gluten free, dairy free, no-bake, super satisfying and easy to grab on the go, these hearts are high in fiber and protein to keep you energized during long hikes, workouts or just for an afternoon snack that kids and adults will both love. The Brazil nuts add an extra nutrition punch with selenium. Selenium is an important immune supporting mineral that acts as an antioxidant. Studies show diets rich in selenium foods are linked to lower rates of Prostate cancer (good news for all my boys!). Just 5 Brazil nuts gives you the right “dose” of 200 mg Selenium.
