Use any variety of mixed nuts or seeds you like in this trail mix. Dried fruit is rich in vitamins and antioxidants, and the nuts add healthy fats and protein, which makes this an excellent on-the-go snack.

Ingredients

Cooking spray
1 teaspoon butter
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup slivered almonds
1/4 cup chopped hazelnuts
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup sunflower seed kernels
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
Dash of ground cloves
1 cup raisins

Preparation

1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil; coat with cooking spray.

2. Heat butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in honey; cook 2 minutes or until mixture bubbles around edges of pan. Add almonds and next 7 ingredients; cook over medium heat 8 minutes or until nuts are golden, stirring frequently. Stir in raisins. Immediately spread onto prepared baking sheet; cool completely.

Note:

Lining the baking sheet with parchment paper or foil and then coating it with cooking spray prevents the honey-coated nuts and fruit from sticking to the pan. It also makes cleanup a cinch.
