    This is a snack and that is delicious as well as Healthy. I quadrupled the spices and stored in a container with the instructions on the side. Just add the oil and bake. Thank you!  -  17 Sep 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I personally loved the spices (not so for all my buddies, however!) I thought it had just the right amount of "kick'" to it, although I used the same amount of spices in the recipe, but with 2 cups of seeds. I think it would have been way too much for only 1 cup. I also rinsed and soaked the seeds overnight in water. I baked them for longer than indicated, until they seemed to be done. I shared with my Livestrong class and had requests for the recipe.  -  20 Nov 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Just a bit of a kick but very addicting! Will be making them again.  -  14 May 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
