Just whipped up a batch of this yum-tastic flaxseed granola – perfect for those looking for a protein-packed, low carb breakfast free from gluten, dairy, sugar (also great for those wanting something to help clean out the intestines to support healthy functioning bowels! 💩👌🏻). Flaxseed (also known as linseed) are a rich source of micronutrients, dietary fibre, manganese, vitamin B1, and the essential fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid, also known as ‘ALA’ or ‘omega-3’.

Crazy-but-cool fact: during the 8th century, King Charlemagne believed so strongly in the health benefits of flaxseed, he demanded his loyal subjects eat the seeds – he even passed laws to make sure they did! All hail the king indeed!!
