Crunchy Savory Protein Snack

Having delicious go-to snacks on hand are so important when on the ultimate lifestyle transformation program. I always have a few staple ones on hand, something savoury, sweet and something indulgent but still healthy.

This protein mix is as savoury as it gets. it’s incredibly satisfying when you have the munchies and if you’re all about the crunch factor, like me, then they will totally hit the spot!

It’s so easy to have on hand to pull from as needed. You can simply pack them in your reusable ziplock bag and be out the door in seconds! No mess, no cooler needed and since they’re protein rich they’ll keep you feeling satisfied longer.

I like to double the recipe and keep them in an airtight glass jar in my pantry and this way I have them always on hand. Did I mention they’re super easy to make? That’s always the first factor I think about when making a recipe, they absolutely must be simple and easy!

This protein snack is:

  • Gluten-free
  • Savory
  • Quick and easy to make
  • Vegan
  • Satisfying
  • Crunchy
  • Rich in protein

This recipe is also very versatile. You can use the seeds or nuts of choice if you’re allergic to any of these ingredients or prefer to swap them out to change it up.


1 1/2 cups buckwheat groats

3/4 cup sunflower seeds

3/4 cup pumpkin seeds

1/4 cup Tamari or low sodium soy sauce

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon onion powder

1/4 teaspoon chilli powder or smoked paprika


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Rinse and drain the buckwheat groats, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds.
  3. In a medium-size bowl, mix all the ingredients and spread out evenly onto an oven tray covered with parchment paper.
