Much more than a snack! These can be eaten straight from the freezer.
I used puffed buckwheat, a great gluten free grain giving a nice lightness among the seeds nuts and sweetness. Alternatively you can use unsalted / unsweetened / unbuttered popcorn or oats instead of puffed buckwheat as alternatives.
