Servings: 20….1/4 cup servings
1 C chopped walnuts
1 C chopped pecans
1 C sliced almonds
1 C dried cranberries
1 C unsweetened ribbon style coconut
1 1/2 T coconut oil
3 T blue agave nectar
1 t cinnamon
a few pinches of sea salt (optional)
Instructions: Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.
Mix first five ingredients in large bowl.
Melt coconut oil in small bowl.
Add blue agave, cinnamon and sea salt in with the melted oil and whisk briskly until the agave and oil have become one….this may take a little bit.
Pour agave, oil and cinnamon mixture into the large bowl with the other ingredients and mix well trying to coat all of the nuts.
Bake on a rimmed cookie sheet for 30 minutes, stirring every ten minutes. Do not walk to far from the oven….it can easily over bake quickly.
Let cool and dry completely before storing in an airtight container. If not, it will become hard and sticky.
Notes: I love to have this on hand. You could use any combination of nuts and dried fruit. Make it your way or mine. No matter how you make it, it’s a perfect pre-workout snack or a great afternoon energy boost…AKA, “afternoon delight”.
