Making a maple glazed trail mix isn’t difficult. We’ll show you how to do it step by step. Here’s the complete guide and recipe to make it:
Start by preheating your oven to 300 F.
Pour all the nuts and seeds into a large bowl. Once you have done that, then drizzle maple syrup over all the nuts and seeds in the bowl.
Grab a parchment-lined baking sheet from your kitchen cupboard, and spread it evenly across your baking tray.
Use a spoon to mix the nuts and seed with the maple syrup, and then scoop them out from the bowl, and place them onto your baking tray. Then bake the nuts and seeds in the oven for 20 minutes straight.
Once it has finished baking, remove the bowl from the oven and let it cool off completely. This is to allow the maple syrup to set!
After the nuts and seeds have cooled off, then you can start pouring the maple glazed nuts and seeds into a plastic container, and fill it with some chocolate chips and cookie crumbles to add some chocolate-crunch to your trail mix.
After that, you can pack your trail mix in a plastic container and you’re ready to go to work/school. It’s as simple as that!
This is what makes trail mixes so ideal! They are healthy, nutritious and convenient as they can be packaged easily and carried anywhere to school or even work.
