Nut Cluster Snack Bites

Flavorful and crunchy, these nut clusters are a quick and healthy snack.

This recipe was created as I love Kind bars and whenever I travel I toss one in my travel bag. I was on the hunt for different travel snacks for an upcoming trip and voila, this is the result.

You can adjust the type of nuts and seeds quite easily. I love the taste of hemp hearts and I tossed in some chia seeds as well because we could all use more chia seeds right?

Why Healthy

  • Nuts are packed with protein, fiber and essential fats. Almonds are calcium rich and high in vitamin E.
  • Hemp hearts are rich in protein and essential fatty acids.
  • Chia seeds contain calcium, manganese, and phosphorus, and are a great source of healthy omega-3 fats

      Ingredients:

      1/2 Cup Sunflower Seeds
      1/2 Cup Pumpkin Seeds

      Mix the nuts and seeds in a large bowl, then mix the honey, molasses, cinnamon and ginger in a small bowl.

      Spread the mixture on the prepared pan into a single layer, then bake for 18-20 minutes or until the nuts just begin to brown. (They will still seem wet and sticky.)
