We wanted to use up the bits and bops of nuts and crackers in the pantry. Why is it that family members will not eat the last handful or 2 of nuts or snacks? Really?!! This Drives us crazy! How about you?
We are all about the waste not want not method so spiced nut mix is a great way to breathe back life into the snacks in the cupboard. You can make spiced nut mix gluten-free by just holding the crackers or adding a few small gluten-free crackers to the mix or even pretzels. If you want to make this recipe diabetic friendly, exchange the maple syrup with olive oil, coconut oil just so that spices adhere.
The hack for putting this spiced nut mix recipe together is to have a total of 2.5 cups of any nuts or bite size crackers. Spices of your choice. We like it a little spicy so we added chili powder and a little earthy so we added a little cumin and garlic for good measure. However, really you could any spices your little heart desires. We just happened to have not packed those 3 spices up yet with the move. Complete coincidence, Really!
