Makes 2¼ cups (280gms) (1 serving size 30gms)

Nuts and seeds baked with maple syrup and tossed through dried fruit. So good. So healthy. So incredibly yum! Definitely one of my favourites. Try it sprinkled over fruit salad with a dollop of yogurt.

You’ll need

½ cup chopped nuts (walnuts, almonds, macadamias, pinenuts, cashews – anything you’ve got)
½ cup sunflower and pumpkin seed mix
2 tbsp chia seeds
2 tbsp maple syrup (honey would be fine too)
10 apricot halves, chopped
2 tbsp dried cranberries, chopped
2 tbsp dried blueberries, chopped

Let’s go

Heat oven to 180°c and line a baking tray with baking paper. Mix nuts and seed mix together along with chia seeds and maple syrup. Pour out onto a baking tray, spread over the tray and bake for 15 minutes turning every so often to break up the mixture and ensure even cooking. Keep an eye on the mixture as it cooks as nuts can burn very quickly.

Remove from the oven and toss through the dried fruit. Allow to cool and store in an airtight container.

Why it’s good for you
Nuts and seeds really are superfoods. They are packed with omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants that safeguard your body. This is a gorgeous addition to cereal, porridge, sprinkled over yogurt or my favourite – 2 tbsp sprinkled over a fruit salad and dolloped with yogurt.
