|Chocolate Pepita Cups|
A few weeks ago, I got a package from Gerbs Pumpkin Seed Co. They produce a line of pumpkin seeds (mostly shelled, roasted pepitas) with a variety of flavors. They also have sunflower seeds and shell-on pumpkin seeds.
What's special about these seeds is that they are allergy-safe. Unlike lots of other commercially available seeds, they are free of nuts, tree nuts, soy and sesame.
They also taste great. What is also special, too, is that Gerbs is offering Welcoming Kitchen readers a 10% discount off that total order by using the word "welcoming."
I use pepitas frequently in my cooking to take the place of nuts, due to my son's nut allergy.
These pepitas work perfectly in my recipes.
