Ingredients

This recipe include 1/4 tsp of our PureSea Natural

1 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup sesame seeds

1 cup pumpkin seeds
1 cup pine nuts

.

½ cup brown rice syrup

¼ tsp Seaweed

Method

Lightly toast seeds and seaweed in a medium hot oven or in a dry pan. Heat rice syrup in a saucepan then add to the toasted seeds and mix well. Pour mixture onto parchment paper and then allow to cool and cut into squares. To make it even more delicious with a sweet and salt taste simply add some torn pieces of nori into the mixture. Add dried fruits or desiccated coconut, equally delicious and the rich black and red colours look amazing.

Seaweed Health Benefits

Iodine is an essential trace element that is lacking in many diets, and is particularly important during pregnancy.  In the diet, iodine contributes to:

o Normal development in children
o High energy yielding metabolism
o Normal cognitive function
o Normal thyroid function

Research shows specific compounds in seaweed can help manage blood sugar and the feeling of fullness. You may have noticed no salt in this recipe! Seaweed is used to replace salt and enhance flavours.
