Seeds are rich in antioxidants and healthy fats! Therefore, it is good to add them to this mix. You may undoubtedly customize it per your taste and skip the seeds if you like.

The snack mix lasts for two weeks in an air-tight container in a cool place. You may also put it in the refrigerator, and it can last for a month.
