Pumpkin Spice Harvest Trail Mix

It’s totally fall, y’all.

To kick off the season of Pumpkin Spice!, I am sharing this autumn flavored trail mix recipe that’s so good. Since this is made at home, it’s free of added sugar and preservatives. Double or triple the recipe for friends! You could also wrap this up in cute little box and gift it!

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 2/3 cup pecan halves
  • 1/3 cup pepitas or roasted pumpkin seeds
  • 1/3 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/4 cup golden raisins
  • 1/2 cup of dried apple chips

Instructions

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Add maple syrup to a large sauce pan and heat over medium-high heat until just beginning to boil.
  • Stir in pumpkin pie spice, salt, and nuts and cook, stirring frequently, until the nuts have caramelized and the syrup has reduced. About 3-5 minutes.
  • Spread mixture in an even layer on the prepared baking sheet and let cool completely. The candied nuts will harden as they cool.
  • Once hardened, add raisins and apple chips to the pan, stir until ingredients are evenly distributed, breaking the candied nuts into clusters as needed.
  • Store in an air-tight container.
  • Enjoy!
