Everything but the Bagel Recipe + Flax

I’ve been seeing the Trader Joes new seasoning blend, Everything but the Bagel, pop up all over social media.  Unfortunately for me, the closes Trader Joes is 60 miles away!  Yikes!  Instead of driving 2 hours, I decided to just mix some up at home.

One thing I love about this recipe is all the amazing nutrients combined together.
