Inspired Trail Mix
1 cup raw cashews
1 tablespoon maple syrup
2 pinches ground cinnamon
1 pinch cayenne pepper
1 pinch sea salt
1/3 cup halved dried apricots
1/3 cup raisins
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment
In a bowl, toss together the cashews, maple syrup, cinnamon, cayenne, and
salt until well mixed. Spread the mixture onto the baking sheet. Bake until
golden brown, stirring half way through, about 10 minutes. Remove from the
oven and scrape the nuts onto a plate to cool.
When the nuts are cool, put them into a bowl and toss them together with
the apricots and raisins.
Serving suggestions: Divide the mix into small individual containers for
snacking. Add a few tablespoons to a bowl of fruit salad.
