  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup unsalted whole almonds

    This is my go-to snack mix personally and with my clients because it’s easy to make, portable, nutritious and delicious.  Easy to make and full of flavor, this snack mix is high nutrition for boosting energy as a pick-me-up at snack time or as an easy breakfast sprinkled over Greek-style yogurt and fruit.

    Preparation

    1.

    Preheat oven to 250°F. Mix brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger and paprika in small bowl. Add the cayenne (optional), too. Set aside.

    2.

    Place oats, almonds, walnuts, pepitas and pistachios in large bowl. Add thawed apple juice concentrate; toss until nuts are evenly coated. Sprinkle with spice mixture, tossing to coat well. Spread evenly on a baking pan.

    3.

    Bake 30 minutes, stirring halfway through cook time. Cool completely on the same or another baking pan on a wire rack. Stir in raisins and dried cherries. Store in airtight container.
