Pumpkin Spice Trail Mix
This pumpkin spice trail mix is loaded with a variety of nuts, dried fruit and a pumpkin spice flavor. Snack by the handful or use as a topping for yogurt.
- 1 cup raw whole almonds
- 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
- 1 cup raw pecan halves
- 1 cup raw pepitas (shelled pumpkin seeds)
- 1 cup raw walnut halves
- ¼ cup coconut sugar or brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons paprika
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- ½ teaspoon sea salt
- ¼ cup canned pumpkin or homemade pumpkin puree
- 2 Tablespoons all natural apple juice or apple cider
- ⅔ cup dried cranberries
- ⅔ cup raisins
Preheat oven to 250°F.
Place almonds, oats, pecans, pepitas and walnuts in large bowl.
Mix together pumpkin puree and apple juice; pour over nut mixture and toss until nuts are evenly coated. Sprinkle mixture with coconut sugar, cinnamon, paprika, pumpkin pie spice and salt. Toss to coat well. Spread trail mix evenly on a baking sheet. You can use a parchment lined sheet for easy clean up.
Bake 30-35 minutes, stirring halfway through cook time. Cool completely. Stir in cranberries and raisins. Store in airtight container. Will keep at room temperature for up to 1 week, up to a month in the fridge and 3 months in the freezer.
Nuts – I love the combination of nuts I used but you can absolutely switch up which nuts you use. Keep the ratios the same so you're adding the same amount of volume! I bet cashews would be delicious!
Seeds – Same as the nuts, you can definitely swap out the pumpkin seeds for a different nut or seed of your choice. Try sunflower seeds for a similar size.
Dried fruit – Same here! Use any dried fruit you'd like, just make sure you keep the ratios the same. Goji berries would make a great substitute.
