Honey Dijon Sunflower Seeds

Things that are more enjoyable that completing college applications:

Getting up close and personal with a broom and the dust bunnies under my bed.

Merging onto 101-S at Rengstorff.

Loading and unloading the dishwasher.

Studying for calculus.

Rifling through my spice and baking cabinets to find ingredients for holiday snacks that can be made in minutes.

(Make a big batch of these Honey Dijon Sunflower Seeds to have on hand for gifts and cheese trays at parties. Mix them with pretzels, popcorn, and dried fruit for a fun trail mix, or toss them in salads with sliced apples and crunchy croutons. Procrastination has never been more productive or delicious.)

Honey Dijon Sunflower Seeds

Makes 2 cups

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 tablespoons honey

1 teaspoon smoked salt

¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

2 cups roasted, unsalted sunflower seeds.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the Dijon, olive oil, honey, salt, and pepper until smooth. Add the sunflower seeds and toss together until well coated. Spread the sunflower seeds out onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for 12-14 minutes, until golden brown and fragrant. Let cool, then store in an airtight container. Use them to top salads and serve them as tasty snacks at holiday parties.
