Simple Recipes – Healthy Nut Mix

Registered Dietitian Susan Dopart sent me this recipe from her recent book A Recipe for Life by the Doctor’s Dietitian. A great way for children to enjoy vegetables.

Servings – 10 1/4 cups
Prep Time – 10 minutes
Cooking Time – 10 – 15  minutes

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup raw steel cut oats
  • ½ cup raw pumpkin seeds
  • ½ cup coarsely chopped raw cashews
  • ¼ cup raw sunflower seeds
  • ¼ cup unsweetened dried coconut
  • ¼ cup sliced raw almonds
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 ½ tablespoons extra virgin coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon honey

Method

Mix all dry ingredients together.  Mix in coconut oil and honey.  Spread on cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees until golden brown, approximately 10-15 minutes, stirring once through the cooking process.  Remove from oven and let cool on cookie sheet.

Store in airtight container for up to 5 days or in the freezer for 1 month.

Nutrition tip: A tasty topper for plain yogurt or cottage cheese or all alone. Our healthy version of “granola.” Coconut oil is high in lauric acid which is a powerful immune stimulant.
