You know what’s extremely essential for everyday life? SNACKS. There’s absolutely nothing that makes me happier than a 3pm nourishing snack that kicks hunger’s booty goodbye.

I love wandering into the kitchen for cup of coffee with a little almond milk, and a favorite snack. Most of the time I’m a sweet girl, but give me something a little crunchy, salty and crispy and I will bow down to the snack gods.

When Colman’s Mustard asked me to create a hot new recipe for you, this was the first one that came to my mind because I know how much you also appreciate a good snack. Many of you have asked me what to take on hikes, or a healthy option to nosh on at work and this is it. WE HAVIN’ A HOT SNACK PARTY. So who’s ready to #hotmessaround?
