Holiday Spiced-Nut Mix
½ cup almonds (raw or soaked and dehydrated)
½ cup walnuts (raw or soaked and dehydrated)
cup pepitas (raw or soaked and dehydrated)
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 tablespoon coconut oil
2 tablespoons chia seeds
¼ teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon cinnamon or allspice
1 heaping tablespoon goji berries
Preheat the oven to 300F.
Combine nuts and seeds in a small bowl.
In a small saucepan, add the maple syrup and coconut oil. Whisk the maple syrup and oil over medium-low heat for about 30 seconds until coconut oil is melted; remove from heat.
Mix in the salt, spices, and chia seeds; stir until fully combined.
Pour the nuts and seed mixture into the saucepan; using a rubber spatula to scrape up all the syrup and oil, combine the mixture until fully coated and evenly distributed.
Line a baking pan with parchment or Silpat; pour the mixture out on the pan and distribute in one even layer (you will not need the entire width of the pan).
Roast in the oven for 10 minutes. Stir, and roast another 7 to 8 minutes.
Remove from the oven; stir in the goji berries while the mixture is still warm. Let cool on the pan. Once hardened, break up any large chunks and store in a glass container for up to 5 days.
