Raw Pepita Seed Brittle

This is my raw version of Pepita brittle. It's so much easier to make than the cooked version and far healthier too. The hardest part is not eating it before its placed into the dehydrator!

1 cup raw Pepita's (pumpkin seeds)
1 cup raw hulled sunflower seeds
1/2 cup raw honey
3/4 tsp sea salt

Soak seeds for 4-6 hours in purified water. Drain and rinse and let drip dry for a few minutes. Place Pepita's, sunflower seeds and salt in a food processor and pulse several times until slightly grounded but still chunky. Pour mixture into a bowl and mix with honey. If honey it hardened, place jar in a bowl of warm water until softened. Flattened the mixture out in a dehydrator screen and dehydrate for 18-24 hours. Let cool for 30 minutes. Mixture hardens after cooling. Break into pieces after hardened. Brittle will keep for several days in the fridge or several months in the freezer.
