I love recipes like this, because they are quick and easy to make, and hits the spot with children and adults. The ingredients are spicy, loaded with fibre, and once cooked, cooled, the mixture can be put in zip close bags and stored up to 6 weeks in your pantry. Just the fact that these snacks are made at home is a plus as you know exactly what is in them.
