Warning! These addicting things are my best version of the Living Nutz company’s Vegan Cheezy nutz. At $7.00 for about 25 almonds, I decided to make them myself. These are great for snacking on the trail, at work or while traveling.

Recipe Directions

Be sure to soak the almonds to bring them to life. Rinse them and drain them well. Grind the pumpkin seeds in a coffee grinder or vitamix ‘til fine. Mix them with the other ingredients except the almonds. Coat the almonds in this mixture. Taste one so you can adjust the seasonings, which will intensify after dehydrating. If it’s too runny, add more ground pumpkin seeds. You may want more Nama or to eliminate it altogether and use Celtic Sea salt instead. Start dehydrating at 115 degrees for 8 hours. Transfer to screens and finish dehydrating until crisp (24 hours total), but feel free to snack while they are dehydrating.

I've made the pesto ones as well. I tried to use this seasoning for the cauliflower popcorn. i don't know what happened. I ate a lot of it and started feeling ill within an hour. 4 hours later I vomited all of it. :( I'm going to have to make a sunseed substitution and see what happens. I've had this happen to me before when overdosing on pumpkin seeds. Of course you can sub the bragg's. Just remember these are intense flavors that super intensify in the dehydrator.

OMG izhpt! These are FABULOUS! I've tried your recipe with just the almonds and once with cashews. Both ways are so frickin' good! :)

Why the hell would anyone ever want to eat SAD things like "Cheez-Its®"?!?!?!?!

These really taste like cheese coated nuts. I love PUMPKIN SEED CHEEZE!!

Thank You! :)

These are really good. I just made them. (I dehydrated them at 105 degrees so it ended up taking 4 days) They could still actually use another day or two but their crunchy so that's good enough for me. The only thing for my personal taste is I would significantly lower the amount of cayenne I use in my batch next time. It is overpowering the "cheeziness" of the nuts so it's more spicy than cheezy. Thanks so much for posting this recipe though. I love Living Nutz so these are definitely a keeper!

These are dangerous! I'm eating them right now and I love them!! So good. I even ate the crumbs of topping when I took them out of the dehydrator - that alone is yummy. They are quite spicy but that would seem obvious with the teaspoon of cayenne.

I ate them on the trail, off the trail, on the bike and in the kayak. I ate them on the plane and now I'm eating them out of the dehydrator!
