Snacks to go…

Nuts are such a handy thing to be able to pop in a lunchbox as a quick, tasty pick-me-up… What to do when you can’t have nuts? The kidlets and I love these tamari roasted seeds that are packed with protein and other goodness…  The seeds store well and are super easy to prepare.

You’ll need: 3 cups of seeds (I used a combination of buckwheat, sunflower, pumpkin and sesame), 1/4 cup tamari (soy sauce works too), 1 tsp sugar.

Lightly toast the seeds until warm, but not golden.


While the seeds are warming up, mix the sugar and tamari in a large saucepan over low heat until the sugar is dissolved.

Remove the tamari/sugar mix from the heat and add the warmed seeds, stirring thoroughly.


Leave to marinade for 10-15 minutes stirring whenever you remember.

When all the seeds are well coated, spread them out on a large baking tray (I like to line mine with a silicone baking sheet because it’s easier to clean).  Bake at 150˙C for 10 minutes or until golden, stirring at the 5 minute mark.


And that’s it! Healthy, salty goodness that is just the boost needed to get through to the end of the day…
