Paleo Recipes for Modern Day Cavemen

Roasted Nut Mix

Forget Chex Mix. This Paleo nut mix was a great addition to a superbowl party we had awhile back.  I made this in large batches because it holds well and serves great for on-the-road snacks when you’re in need of a tasty snack but are sick of plain nuts. Because sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don’t. But feel free to use any nuts you have – I did a blend of nuts and seeds which were quite tasty.

Ingredients
2 cups almonds
2 cups walnuts
1 cup pepita seeds
2/3 cup coconut shreds
2 tablespoons coconut flour
2/3 cup honey

Directions
Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees.

On a large baking tray lined with parchment paper, mix your almonds, walnuts and seeds together with your coconut flour. Then pour the honey slowly over the nuts – you’re not going to cover all of them but that’s ok. Then use your hands to mix all of the nuts and honey together. Warning: this is a messy process!

Once you’ve mixed as thoroughly as you can, add the coconut flakes and mix around again. Some nuts and seeds will have more coconut flakes on them but that’s ok. As my husband says, it’s the element of surprise that keeps you going back to get that special extra honey and coconut cloaked nut.   This recipe inspired me to do a blend of different flavors. Next time I’ll try a spicy version!

Bake in oven for 20 minutes. You can serve immediately or wait until they cool down. Enjoy!
