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.

Awesome! I love the mix of flavors! The only 2 thing I did different was mixing in 2 cups of seeds I had in the fridge soaking in salt water for a few days. So I used 3 cups of seeds for this recipe. There had a sweetness plus saltiness from the soaking seeds. This is a keeper! Especially because of the healing spices...Thank you for sharing!!! Read More

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! Read More

weird, but oddly good. Combo of spices reminds me of a "gun powder" spice blend I made years ago for game meat. Read More
