Quick and Easy Nut Free Roasted Seeds

Quick and Easy Nut Free Roasted Seeds

I’ve had many people over the last few years about where they can find nut free seeds that don’t have a nut warning. Although it seems to me the vast majority of seeds you can buy in supermarkets have a warning label on them. What a pain!

However, it doesn’t have to be! Autumn is on it’s way and that means pumpkins and butternut squashes. So I thought, why not roast your own seeds, then you can guarantee they are free from nuts, peanuts and cross-contamination!

This recipe is sooooooo easy and take about 15 minutes from start to finish! Make a batch in advance and store them in an airtight container for later.

Use them in nut free muesli, grind them up as a replacement for nuts in pesto, mix with dried fruit and eat them as a snack.

For more flavours, why not try adding some crushed dried chilli, ground cumin and smoked paprika to your seeds for a fiery snack.

  • gluten
  • wheat
  • nuts
  • peanuts
  • eggs
  • dairy
  • refined sugar
  • soya
  • suitable for vegans and vegetarians

Free from pretty much everything, but flavour! Therefore she said, they are suitable for everyone making them wonderful and full of wonder. And so Wonderjacks were born.

We hope you enjoy the recipe! They are really easy and so quick to make, quick to eat too…Better watch out! 😉
