Chocolate-covered graham crackers with pepitas
Pepitas, literally “little squash seeds” in Spanish, are hulled pumpkin seeds, typically with a gorgeous green hue. Aside from being a delicious source of loads of nutrients like magnesium and good-for-you fats, they’re also a great snacking alternative for anyone allergic to nuts. While they were once difficult to find, they’ve become much more common in grocery stores and are worth seeking out. Their nutty flavour pairs perfectly with chocolate in this easy snack that’s perfect for the person who loves a little salty with their sweet.
