Honey Roasted Sunflower Seeds

I had a pack of organic sunflower seeds lying around for a while now.

Inspired by a snack we had on the plane back from Bangkok, I decided to make some honey roasted sunflower seeds.

Like homemade granola, this is really something very easy to do - I just mixed the seeds with some canola oil and honey and then season with a sprinkling of sea salt. Then the mixture is spread out on a piece of Silpat and baked at 150 deg C for about 20 - 30 mins.

After it's cooled down, transfer to an air tight glass container and it makes for a good snack to munch on whilst watching TV.

This picture is taken outdoors in the middle of a sunny day 
- hence the "glaring look".. I don't like it much.
I've found that food pictures are best taken outdoors 
around 10-11am or 2-3pm on a cloudy day..
