Crazy for brittle..
Keeping a variety of brittles in the fridge at all times is perfect for people trying to stick to a clean, healthy eating plan. I completely understand those days, when there’s a giant hole inside of you that only something sweet and comforting can fill, but rather that reaching for a bar of chocolate or a bag of jelly babies, munch on a few wedges of your favorite brittle bars. I guarantee they’ll do the trick, without the morning after self-loathing.
Also perfect for adding on top of your breakfast yougart or for sprinkling over ice cream.
Seed and Almond brittle
1/2 cup seed mix
1/2 cup almonds

Toast seeds and almonds in a pan on medium-low heat until lightly golden. Then add honey and cinnamon and stir into the mixture making sure that the honey does not burn. Take the pan off the heat if you see the honey begin to bubble.
Place in a lightly greased baking tin and place in the fridge to set.
