Infused with pumpkin pie spice flavor, and toasted to perfection in the crockpot, these nuts are a sweet and salty favorite!
Ingredients
  • 1 cup Almonds*
  • 1 cup Cashews
  • 1 cup Pecans
  • 1 cup Pumpkin Seeds
  • ¼ cup Maple Syrup
  • 2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil (measure in liquid state)
  • 2 Tablespoons Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 1 teaspoon Salt (divided use)
Instructions
  1. To prepare, spray a crockpot (6-quart or larger) well with nonstick cooking spray (or line with a crockpot liner).
  2. Place Almonds, Cashews, Pecans, and Pumpkin Seeds in crockpot.
  3. In a small bowl, stir to combine Maple Syrup, melted Coconut Oil, Pumpkin Pie Spice, and ½ teaspoon Salt. Pour mixture over mixed nuts, and stir well until everything is coated.
  4. Keeping the crockpot UNCOVERED (so, so important!), cook on HIGH for 2 hours, stirring every 20 minutes.
  5. At the 2-hour mark, turn off crockpot, and transfer nuts to a large bowl. Sprinkle remaining ½ teaspoon Salt over nuts. Allow nuts to cool.
  6. Serve immediately, or store in a tightly sealed container at room temperature (or in the refrigerator) for up to 2-3 weeks.
  7. Makes 4 cups.
Notes
*Other favorite nuts/seeds may be substituted for any of the called for nuts in this recipe.
