My kids and I created this fun recipe during a math lesson one day.  I homeschool both of my children and we were learning about measurements and what better way to learn measurements than by using them to make a delicious snack.  We had a blast filling the bowl with nuts using all different sizes of measuring cups and after our snack was done cooling we measured out 1/2 cup servings into snack baggies for an easy grab and go treat.  While this is a tasty treat it’s not one that I recommend you make often.  Nuts themselves are a healthy treat but this recipe has added sugar (natural and clean but still sugar) that shouldn’t be eaten on a daily basis.  Enjoy this recipe as a special treat and make sure to share! : )

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups organic unsalted nuts of your choice (I used peanuts, almonds and cashews - the ratio is up to you, you can’t go wrong)
  • 1 tbsp raw honey
  • 1 tbsp unsalted organic grass fed butter
  • 3/4 cup ‘clean’ pretzels
  • 2 tbsp date sugar (optional)

Preparation:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment or non stick foil.
  2. Add nuts to a large bowl and set aside.

    Heat butter and honey on medium low heat until butter is melted

  3. In a small saucepan heat the butter and honey on medium low heat.  Once the butter is completely melted, stir a few times and then pour the mixture over the nuts.

    Spread nuts in a single layer on a baking sheet

  4. Stir well until the nuts are completely covered by the butter mixture and then transfer the coated nuts to the baking sheet and spead in a single, even layer.
  5. Bake for 5 minutes, remove from oven, stir once and place back in the oven for an additional 5 minutes.
  6. Remove baking sheet from oven and let cool slightly (about 3-4 minutes). Transfer the nuts to a large mixing bowl, add date sugar (if using) and toss to coat.
  7. Add pretzels and stir to combine. Let cool completely and ENJOY!
