Homemade Pumpkin Seed Clusters

I promised you a quick easy chocolate fix. Let’s do it. These pumpkin seed clusters are low in sugar, high in zinc (good for fertility, skin and bone healing!) and contain a lot of coconut oil (good for skin, gut, immunity, moods).

Luckily, I still have a few in my fridge from the last batch I made, so I don’t have to attempt this one-handed.

Peel off the paper, and store in containers in the fridge.

See if you can make one look like your country.

I’m busy testing variations of comfrey and bone-healing food on myself, but I’ll wait a few weeks more so I can give you the big picture. Full results coming soon… for now, enjoy your GAPS legal, plastic free, low sugar, gluten free, Paleo, vegan chocolatey goodness!
