This is a very flexible recipe, well suited to adding whatever low carb crunchies you have on hand. I originally copied some version of this recipe from a forum post, but that’s been so long ago and I’ve made so many changes, I’m not even sure the two are much related at this point.
Update! I found my copy of the original recipe, by my friend Maggie from my old Low Carb Eating forum. Her version had:
No sunflower kernels in that version. The seeds would probably be less messy than that kernels because they sift to the bottom–I just don’t like sunflower seeds as much as the kernals. The net carbs on her version is also lower, coming out to about 9 cups of mix, but trackers really need to figure it using the right numbers for the specific ingredients you use. Do be aware, this is a high-salt and high calorie snack mix. Eat a lot of it and you’ll retain some water for a minute. I like to have it for special occasions, like parties or company.
Toasted pumpkin seeds, LC chips, or other types of nuts would work well in this recipe. Use more pork rinds to stretch it if you want. Great to make ahead.
Consider the nutritionals as a rough estimate on what I used and for a generous, cup-size portion (because I know you're gonna eat that much anyway)!
