These Muesli scones are packed with the parent omega 6 fatty acid - Linoleic Acid. This fatty acid is found in abundance in sunflower and pumpkin seeds. Linoleic acid is an essential fatty acid that we must obtain from our diet. Adding seeds to your diet is an excellent way to ensure you are providing your body with the building blocks that it needs to function at its very best.
