So I know this has nothing to do with weddings or kids…but I have found a very delicious new recipe thanks to my friend, Shawn. He was making it one night and I couldn’t wait to try it myself. It is a great snack, full of raw- good- for -you foods. He is super intense into Crossfit and has since followed the Paleo diet. I am not going to go into details with that as I know nothing about it, but click the Crossfit link if you are interested in finding more about the two. Here are some fun pics of this amazing snack….
1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
1 cup almond meal
1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
2 cup raw slivered or chopped almonds
1/2 cup grape seed oil
1/2 cup raw honey
1-2 teaspoons vanilla
Preheat oven to 325. In large bowl add dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients and combine well. Spread thin on baking pan and bake for 25 minutes. Stir and bake another 5 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 5-10 minutes in pan. HOW EASY IS THIS?!
This is so delicious, definitely try it yourself…it is so easy and I can’t wait to see what else he makes! All the above ingredients I found at Trader Joe’s or Byerly’s. Almond meal is a little expensive so be prepared for that. Although, I will probably get about 4 batches out of the almond meal. The seeds came in big bags so they will last awhile, too! Also I read you can use agave nectar instead of the raw honey
I used coconut oil recently as requested by Emily in the comment section below. And I used Agave nectar this time and i actually liked the taste better. I also reduced baking time to about 15-18 minutes and had a less crunchy batch, which I also loved. It has been fun experimenting!
