Autumn Snack Attack

Autumn Snack Attack

On seeds I’ll feed
to meet my need;
then share some seed
for those in need.
That’s my good deed.

Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. Genesis 1:29 NIV

What you will need:

  • Small packages or 1 cup each of unsalted
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Cashew nuts
  • Almond slivers or any other unsalted nut of your choice
  • 1 packet of Taco seasoning mix

(Note: a great place to find varieties of nuts is at Whole Foods or similar markets and stores.)


  • Pre-heat oven to 300 degrees
  • Place nuts and seeds in large mixing bowl
  • Sprinkle Taco seasoning mix over nuts
  • Stir to coat
  • Spread nuts in a thin layer on a cookie sheet


Watch carefully so nuts don’t burn. Turn every few minutes so all are browned on both sides.
Cool and eat.

Here’s a new spin. This mixture is great as an ice cream topping.
