Pumpkin Seed Dried-Cherry Trail Mix - 5 Ingredient Fix
2 cups baby pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
1 cup slivered almonds
3/4 cup raw sunflower seeds
6 tablespoons pure Grade B maple syrup
Coarse salt to taste
1 cup dried cherries or cranberries
Preheat oven to 300.
Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
In a large bowl, toss the pumpkin seeds, almonds, and sunflower seeds with the syrup until evenly coated. Spread the nuts and the seeds out in an even, single layer on the lined baking sheets and season with salt. Bake them, stirring several times with a spatula or wooden spoon, until just golden, about 20 minutes. Cool the nuts and seeds completely on the sheet tray, then add the cherries and toss to combine.
Store the cooled trail mix in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 weeks.
Makes about 6 cups.
