Snack Idea: Spiced Mixed Nuts

This Ellie Krieger recipe has just the right balance between spicy and sweet. My kids even enjoy them! They are packed with fiber and protein, and you really only need a handful to feel satisfied. :) Enjoy!
1/2 cup pecans
1/2 cup almonds
1/3 cup pistachios
1/3 cup cashews
1/3 cup pumpkin seeds
  1 TB maple syrup
1/8 tsp cayenne
1/2 tsp rosemary
1/4 tsp salt

1. Toss everything in a bowl to combine.
2. Heat oven to 325 degrees F. Spread mixture on oiled cookie sheet, and bake for 15-20 minutes.
Keep in airtight container for up to 2 weeks.


Who likes to change it up?

~Use your favorite nuts like walnuts, hazelnuts, etc. instead of what is listed
~Replace the cayenne with smoked paprika or chili powder.

~Use thyme instead of rosemary.

This is so awesome, Kristina! I love me a good trail/snack mix. I probably will try the walnuts in there, too!

I've added cranberries to the mix and that is yummy too! :)
