Tasty Power Energy Snack

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.

The mixture should be cool enough to form into small balls or put the mix into a small bowl to nibble on, I like to do both.  Pop in the fridge for a ready, healthy, tasty snack.  Beware these are very more-ish!
