Yum! I'm going to try this one with almonds. I agree: Pine nuts are too pricey and the one time we tried them, we both thought they tested terrible. Maybe there's something we don't know about pine nuts. :)

Sunflower seeds also taste great, instead of pine nuts! Do you freeze this in ice cube trays?

Actually, we freeze them flat in gallon freezer bags, as we use almost a full (flat) bag for one meal. We thaw it on the counter enough to get out the amount we need and throw the rest back in the freezer. Has worked well for years!

I've never tried sunflowers, but we did peanuts and it turned out JUST FINE! :)
