Be the hostess with the mostest (and yummiest!) of Holiday party snacks this year by using soaked nuts and seeds lightly seasoned or sweetened and dehydrated. Sweet, crunchy and easy to munch on. Soaking your nuts and seeds before hand is a win win situation! You’ll de-activate enzyme inhibitors as well as increase the absorbability of things like amino acids, vitamins and minerals. Soaked pumpkin seeds are full of healthy protein and fats, and also contain loads of zinc for a robust immune system and healthy glow to the skin!
- 1/3 cup + 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp sea salt (or to taste taste)
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 3 cups raw pumpkin seeds
1. Whisk together the syrup, salt, and cinnamon.
2. In a mixing bowl, mix the syrup and spices with the seeds. Lay seeds on a Teflex-lined dehydrator sheet and dehydrate at 115 degrees for 10 hours, or until the seeds are totally dry and crispy!
