Cranberry Chocolate Almond Cereal Snack Mix
Nuts and bolts-style snack mixes usually have a decidedly savory taste to them, but we decided to turn the typical recipe on its head and give it a slightly sweet spin with healthy almonds, cacao nibs, maple syrup, and dried cranberries. Beware, this snack mix is highly addictive!
Yield: 5 cups
Prep time: 10 minutes
Total time: 1.25 hours
2 cups One Degree Organics Sprouted Cacao O’s
2 cups One Degree Organics Sprouted Oat O’s
1 cup almonds
1/4 cup cacao nibs
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/8 cup maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla
Pinch baking soda
1/2 cup dried cranberries
Preheat oven to 250 degrees F and fit a large baking sheet with parchment.
In a large bowl, combine cereals, almonds and nibs. Set aside.
In a small saucepan, combine coconut sugar, coconut oil, and maple syrup. Cook on medium-low heat until melted. Continue cooking, stirring often for 5 minutes. Add baking soda and salt and whisk until smooth. Quickly pour over cereal mixture and toss to coat evenly.
Transfer to prepared baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven, toss, and break up large clumps before returning to oven for 20 more minutes. Break up large clumps again and scatter with cranberries. Cool completely before enjoying or transferring to an airtight container.
