This crunchy, sweet and savory mix is the perfect fall snack or cocktail party nibble. We love the little kick of heat from the cayenne and chili powder, and all the different kinds of texture and crunch you get from the nuts and seeds.

Ingredients

Cayenne pepper

1 pinch

Chili powder

½ tsp(s)

Ground cinnamon

2 tsp(s)

Ground nutmeg

½ tsp(s)

Ground ginger

1 tsp(s)

Ground cloves

tsp(s)

Table salt

¼ tsp(s)

Green pumpkin seeds (pepitas)

½ cup(s), unsalted, without shells

Sliced almonds

¼ cup(s)

Shelled pistachio nuts

¼ cup(s)

Quinoa puffs

40 gm(s), about 1/2 cup

Olive oil

1½ tbsp(s)

Maple syrup

2 tbsp(s)

Dried cranberries

2 tbsp(s), chopped

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, mix the cayenne, chili powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, ground ginger, ground cloves, and salt.
  2. Place the pumpkin seeds, sliced almonds, pistachios, and puffed quinoa in a large nonstick pan, over medium heat, and cook until toasted, about 4-6 minutes. Add the olive oil, maple syrup, and spice blend, and toss to coat. Cook until there is no liquid left in the pan, 1-2 minutes more.
  3. Remove the pan from the heat and transfer the snack mix to a parchment lined baking sheet to cool. Once cooled, mix in dried cranberries and store the mix in an air-tight container at room temperature.
  4. Serving size: 1/4 cup
