Default What can I do with this chopped seed/nut mix?

Not long ago, I put a mixture of sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, almonds and sesame seeds into the mini chopper and put the results into the fridge. I'd been thinking of using it in my morning porridge, but it hasn't turned out that way. I now have absolutely no idea what to do with it. I'm vegan, by the way. Any suggestions?

Home-made granola, or baking them into something. Failing that, I love that kind of topping on my salad. (I've seen something called a "Trail Mix Salad" at one of our local, family-owned, 50-year-old Italian-American restaurants -- what we in America call a "red sauce" Italian restaurant, as opposed to a newer, lighter, trattoria-type Italian restaurant. That was a shocker.)

Hmm. No point to granola, I have porridge almost every day and there's a box of muesli for when I'm in a rush. Salad might be an option, especially if I toast the mix. Leafy salad, I presume? My usual salads at the moment are the cucumber and tomato variety, but I think I'm about to go through a spinach salad phase again.

It's just occurred to me that it presents far more possibilities when toasted, so I'm about to toast the mixture. I suppose I could always sprinkle a bit on the porridge, or on soups instead of croutons. I've been finding nuts and seeds harder to use than I'd expected as they're so high-calorie, but I'm now thinking I may need a bit more fat in my diet anyway.

you could use them as a gratin topping? I make a gratin with sliced tomatoes and zucchini, sometimes a layer of sliced potatoes (and i usually add some sliced mozzeralla but good without as well), lots of herbs. I dont add any liquid, i just drizzle it with a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar, and then bake it. I bet those ground nuts would be lovely on top. Or on top of some oven-roasted cauliflower - yummy!

If you eat soy yogurt you could put some on that.

The suggestions above are great but none tastes good on my trials. I don't know what is best for you but choose the one that might be a bit favorable like the last suggestion.

Matt Amsden, who wrote Rawvolution, has some recipes in his book where he uses ground nuts, maybe a pinch of cinammon, and agave to make healthy "raw" cookies. The agave holds the mixture together.

Then he just sticks them in the freezer to solidify their shape. I've tried them and they are simple but good.
