    These were absolutely delish! Thank you so much for the recipe. The only thing I will do differently next time is use parchment on the cookie sheet. Even following your instructions, they were very stuck to the pan and some were wasted.

    you’re welcome! please let me know how the parchment paper works. I found that the paper stuck to the nuts/seeds. I use a wooden spatula and gently remove them from the cookie sheet. perhaps a little more oil would help you as well.
