This is a favourite of mine, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds are nutrient powerhouses and make great little snacks. For this very tasty power energy snack take ½ cup of sunflower seeds and ½ cup of pumpkin seeds and gently dry toast them, (you can also add maybe ¼ cup of sesame seeds too if you wish) moving them around so you don’t burn them . I love my Vision Corning Glass pans, I much prefer them over stainless steel, I used a small frying pan here.
Take the pan off the heat and add ⅓ cup of brown linseeds,
then take 1 generous tablespoon of Marmite (more or less to your own taste) & add to the seed mix. The glass pans retain a good amount of heat which is usually enough to sufficiently “melt” the Marmite but if you need a little extra heat, make sure it is a very low heat setting.
Continue to move the mix around gently until all the seeds are coated with the Marmite.
