Recipe: Pumpkin Seed Trail Mix

MF Trail Mix
Trick-or-treating requires a lot of energy, so I suggest you prepare for Halloween night with this unbelievably delicious trail mix. It’s sweet and savory, filled with all kinds of good-for-you ingredients that will give you sustained energy for hours. However, I’m warning you that this mix is dangerously addictive. Please don’t ask me how much I’ve eaten today. It’s shameful. You should make some today. And then invite me over, because I’m almost out.

Pumpkin Seed Trail Mix

1 cup cleaned, roasted pumpkin seeds
3/4 cup raw sunflower seeds
1 cup slivered almonds
5 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1 cup dried cranberries or cherries
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
coarse salt

Directions
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. In a large mixing bowl combine pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, almonds, and syrup. Stir until everything is well coated with syrup. Pour half of the mixture onto a prepared cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or silicone mats. Sprinkle evenly with a pinch of coarse salt. Bake for 20 minutes or until almonds become toasty brown, stirring once or twice to ensure even cooking. Remove and bake the remaining mix. Once cooled, break mixture up into small clusters and transfer them to a mixing bowl before adding dried fruit and white chocolate chips. Store in an air-tight container.
