Recipe: Sweet and Spicy Nut Mix
Nuts are a great way to curb hunger cravings. This tasty nut snack mix is a slightly sweet, slightly clumpy version of a trail mix -- simply speaking, this is a granola minus the actual oats. It was created as a post-workout snack and something to toss in a camelback, as the protein and raw sugar is a perfect pick-me-up. Be sure to buy raw, unsalted nuts to make this with, or you will end up with a funky mix, no matter how awesome you think sweet and salty might be.
Sweet and Spicy Nut Mix
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. In a large baking dish, mix peanut butter, cinnamon, honey, cayenne and oil. Add the remainder of the ingredients and stir until evenly coated. Toast in the oven for 10 minutes, stir, and then stir after every five minutes (or it will burn!). Mix will be done after 35 or so minutes, depending on how long it takes you to stir things.
