You can do one of two things:

1) Log in binary mode and then dump the packets to a flat file in readback
mode, for example:

snort -b [other options]

snort -dvr [log filename] > [flat-filename]

2) Write an output plugin to do it.  This would actually be pretty straight
forward if you're feeling motivated.  If that's not your cup of tea, I'll see
if I can whip up a plugin to do it sometime soon.
