Very Good 4.5/5
(4 ratings)

I'm not a big pumpkin fan but this works well and is a great after school protein snack with pita bread, rice crackers (especially salsa flavoured ones) or wholemeal crackers.

I like to use around 1/4C of this in my yogurt. I'm sure there are lower nutritional granolas on the market, but I'm also very budget conscience and find this to be not only thrifty, but more healthy since there isn't any preservatives in it.

This came from Food Network - FIve Ingredient Fix:
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.

In a large bowl, toss the pumpkin seeds, almonds, and sunflower seeds and the syrup until evenly coated. Spread the nuts and seeds out, in an even single layer, on the lined baking sheets and season with salt to taste. Bake the nuts, stirring several times with spatula or wooden spoon, until just golden, about 20 minutes.

Cool the nuts completely on the pan, then add the cherries and toss to combine. Store cooled trail mix in an airtight container at room temperature.
