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 or 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. And so I decided to great this recipe for spicy seed snack. 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 of spicy seed snack, I kept the ingredients super simple and did them raw styles in my dehydrator. Check out that stray little kale leaf! Spicy seed snack If you don’t have a dehydrator – toast these up at 200 for about 2 hours or until crispy. These are super awesome to serve to guests – thinking UnDiet Entertaining. 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. Print
