Soak seeds overnight to activate them (about 8 hours), but if you do not have the time or are in a rush to make these, pour boilig water over your seeds and leave for about 30-60 min.  

Seeds can also be placed in mix without activating them, so you do not have to soak them. tmrc_emoticons.;-)

For a more "adult" taste, add Parmesan cheese in stead of Cheddar.

Use Herb or Garlic butter in stead of normal butter.

Use Tamari or home made onion salt as seasoning. Cayenne Pepper can also be added for an extra level of flavour.

    Loved these. I didn't follow the recipe exactly...used milled millet instead of arrowroot flour and omitted the chick peas. Used sunflower seeds and linseed. Goint to be a regular snack in my house! Thanks. tmrc_emoticons.)
