Andrea’s Nuts (…but happy)
This amazing little treat was given to us at the clinic by a long-time client; when I asked her what I should call them, she said “call them anything you want” , so, I took some liberties all in good fun J
This trail mix, does not last when it is brought into the clinic; I think is the slightly roasted flavor , with just the right amount of natural sweetness that makes them oh so irresistible?
Here is the recipe
Take a variety of nuts and seeds and mix them in a bowl ( a good combo is almonds, sunflower seed, pumpkin seeds, walnuts, pecans, ect)
Pour some olive oil into the bowl, only enough to lightly coat the mixture
Place the mixture in a single layer on a pan and broil, turning, every few minutes. Usually this does not need more that 10 min MAX and the nuts continue to cook after removed.
Place the mix back into a bowl while still hot; add a handful of coconut shavings( while still warm, because it will cook with the nut mixture)
Add dried fruit pieces like cranberries and a bit of agave or maple syrup
Store in an airtight container
