Pumpkin Seed Dried Cherry Trail Mix
This is the 3rd time I have made this recipe and of course, I made the whole recipe. I love it on oatmeal, as a snack, or on salads. It is a winner.
The recipe comes from Clair Robinson - 5 ingredient Fix on Food Network
2 cups of baby pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
1 cup slivered almonds
3/4 cup raw sunflower seeds
6 tablespoons pure Grade B maple syrup
1 cup dried cherries or cranberries
1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
2. In a large bowl, toss the pumpkin seeds, almonds, and sunflower seeds and the syrup until evenly coated. 3. Spread the nuts and seeds out, in a single layer on the prepared baking sheets and season with salt to taste. Bake the nuts, stirring several times with a spatula or wooden spoon, until just golden, about 20 minutes.
4. Cool the nuts completely on the pan, then add the cherries and toss to combine. Store cooled trail mix in an airtight container at reoom temperature.
