Faux breaded spicy brussel sprouts

This recipe is great as the main dish. Lots of good fats, some protein and delicious brussel sprouts. And as always, low carb.

1/2 pound fresh brussel sprouts (difficult if frozen)
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
crushed red peppers
1/4 cup olive oil

Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degree F

Wash and slice brussel sprouts in half.

Using a food processor or food chopper, chop sunflower seeds until they are a breadcrumb like consistency.

Dip each half of the brussell sprout in the olive oil then run in the chopped sunflower seeds. Place all pieces in a single layer on a baking sheet. Sprinkle desired amount of crushed red pepper on top and toss remainder of olive oil on sheet.

Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes or until the brussel sprouts have begun to brown at the edges. You can bake them to your desired level of browning.
