Spicy Seed Snack

 

It's a bit of funny thing when summer time rolls around and I find that I spend a whole lot of time in the car. Driving to and from my cottage, heading out of town on day-trip adventures, going up to my parents house more... The theme of the summer seems to be on-the-go and as result, our obsession with ready to rock snacks has reached fever pitch.

As I am sure you know, ready made organic snacks cost a sweet, sweet penny. What we do over at the land of Meghan + Man, we prep and ready a load of snacks that we plan to use for the following month- even though we mostly eat them the day we make them all.

For this batch, I kept the ingredients super simple and did them raw styles in my dehydrator. Check out that stray little kale leaf!

If you don't have a dehydrator- toast these up at 200 for about 2 hrs or until crispy.

These are super awesome to serve to guests- thinking UnDiet Entertaining (what? new book maybe???). What's really awesome about this seasoning blend is that they hit all the tastes- sweet, salty and spicy so you feel wonderfully satiated after a handful... or jarful. Whatever's going.

    This sounds like an amazing idea! I'm making a batch of kale chips today so I'll add these to the oven too!
