Maple Trail Mix

Maple Trail Mix

As a Canadian I am morally obliged to include recipes that incorporate copious quantities of maple syrup. With that in mind here's a nice maple glazed trail mix recipe that should see you through a hike or bike on a cold winter day. Then again this is a nice snack any day.

Ingredients
  

  • 1/2 cup raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup raw pecans
  • 1/2 cup coconut chips (unsweetened) more than enough sugar in the maple syrup.
  • 1/4 cup hulled pumpkin seeds often called pepitas.
  • 3 tbsps Canadian maple syrup at a pinch any maple syrup will do.
  • Salt
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries or cherries

Instructions
 

  • In a bowl toss the nuts, coconut chips and pumpkins seeds in the maple syrup and a pinch of salt so that everything is nicely coated.
  • In a preheated oven (300°F) toast the mixture spread out on a baking sheet.
  • 20 minutes of baking should be plenty. It's a good idea to stir the mixture half way through.
  • Let the mixture cool completely before mixing in the dried fruit and chocolate chips.
  • Store in an airtight container.

Notes

If you’re hiking on a hot day you might want to use candy covered chocolate rather than the chocolate chips as they’re less likely to melt.
In an airtight container this trail mix will keep for several days at room temperature, longer if kept in a refrigerator.
