On my pathway to better health, I've discovered a seedy snack that is easy to make and is a perfect grab-on-the-go treat. If you appreciate the nutritional value of seeds, these are for you.
1 C. unsweetened shredded coconut
1. C. pumpkin seeds
1 C. sunflower seeds
1/2 C. dried cranberries
1/2 C. raisins
optional: 3 T. chocolate chips or cacao nibs
1/2 C. sunflower butter (in health food stores)
1/2 C. agave nectar (coconut nectar can also be used)
pinch of sea salt (if using salted seeds, omit salt.)
In large bowl, stir first six ingredients together. In separate bowl, whisk together sunflower butter and nectar and salt. Pour mixture over seed mixture and fold to evenly distribute ingredients. Batter will be sticky. Refrigerate mixture for two hours.
Roll dough into balls and stack between layers of waxed paper. Store in refrigerator.
