Snack Clusters

They may taste like candy and crunch like peanut brittle, but these goodies pack a nutritious and nut-free punch. Pack 'em up as a protein-rich morning or afternoon snack. Recipe by Bonny Reichert


Ingredients

  • 1 egg white
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups raw, shelled pumpkin seeds

Instructions

  • Whisk the egg white in a medium bowl until foamy. Mix in honey and salt, then add pumpkin seeds. Toss until the seeds are coated.
  • Tip the contents of the bowl onto a rimmed cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, and spread evenly into a thin layer.
  • Roast in the oven at 300°F (150°C) for 30-35 minutes until golden and glossy, checking the seeds a few times to make sure they don’t burn. (If they’re getting too brown, stir them a bit.)
  • Allow to cool in the pan before breaking into clusters. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
  • Makes 4 cups (1 L).
