It happened one night, when I had the munchies for something sweet but salty. Scheming through my cupboards there was no such mixture to be found. Dark home made chocolates in my freezer and salted mixed nuts in my pantry. And there it was a bottle of non GMO pop corn kernels staring me down. But knowing that I would need something sweet to balance of the salt, I pulled out the 100% maple syrup, the mixed bottle of nuts, the bag of pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sunflower seeds and chia seeds and came up with this perfect combo – guiltless yet satisfying.
You have to give this a try!
