Recipe for Nutty Date Coconut Trail Mix made with DateME Boutique date paste organic and ready-to-use

Ingredients

  • 1 cup pecans
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 cup almonds
  • ½ cup walnuts
  • ½ cup hazelnuts
  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1 cup dried cranberries (or dried fruit of choice)
  • 1 cup coconut flakes, sweetened or unsweetened
  • ¼ cup almond butter
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • ½ cup DateME Date Paste
  • ½ tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

Directions

Yield: 8 cups

  1. Preheat oven to 275°F.
  2. Combine almond butter, coconut oil, Date Paste and vanilla in a small sauce pan. Melt the ingredients over low heat. Once melted, whisk well until blended and somewhat smooth.
  3. If the nuts are whole, place approximately half of them in a Ziploc bag and smash into smaller pieces. (Exclude the sunflower seeds which are already small.) The grocery store also sells these nuts already chopped.
  4. Place all the nuts in a mixing bowl. Add the warm Date Paste mixture to the nuts and mix well, ensuring everything is covered. Spread the mix over a parchment lined sheet tray. Bake for 45 minutes, tossing 2-3 times during the baking process.
  5. Allow to cool completely. Add dried fruit and coconut flakes, if using. Store in an air tight container or Mason jar. Good for up to 2 weeks in a cool, dry location.
