Molly Yeh (star of Food Network’s Girl Meets Farm and baking Instagram sensation) unequivocally holds the coveted title of Queen of Sprinkles. Nonpareils, jimmies, sanding sugar, dragees — you name it, Molly sprinkles it over all of her stunning confections. Dare we say it? She’s Sprinkle Bae.
We recently got the chance to chat with Molly (courtesy of the folks over at the Milk, Love What’s Real campaign) and we asked her to name the best thing she bought at the grocery store recently for $5 or less. Funny enough, she revealed a totally different kind of sprinkle situation that she loves — from Trader Joe’s no less!
Here’s what she had to say: “I love Trader Joe’s Super Seed & Ancient Grain Blend. It has flax seeds, hemp seeds, amaranth, quinoa, chia. It’s not sweet — just crunchy!”
For $4.49, this pouch contains buckwheat, chia, flax, hemp, millet, quinoa, and amaranth. It’s a super-powered mix of seeds and grains that pack a big nutritious punch (think: fiber, omega-3 fatty acid, the works).
As the back of the package instructs, “Sprinkle on cold cereal, oatmeal, or yogurt; bake into muffins or quick breads; or just grab a handful and sprinkle into your mouth.” SPRINKLE!
Molly has found another reason to add this to her breakfast routine: “Since I’m pregnant, I have to have more omega-3s. I sprinkle this into my oatmeal in the morning and can tick off a nutrient.”
Per Molly’s recommendation, I headed to my local TJ’s to check these super sprinkles out. I put a few tablespoons on my Greek yogurt and was delighted by the satisfying crunch that it added, making my morning yogurt a little less sad. The only downside? I wish this mix had a little added sweetness. Maybe I’ll take a page out of Molly’s book and sprinkle this on a big ol’ cake. That’ll do.
Have you tried this seed and grain mix from Trader Joe’s? What’d you think?
