These roasted mixed nuts are so fantastic for snacking on the go. Maple syrup holds the coating together, but the sweetness is minimal and nothing is processed. An improvement on an old recipe! I used double the nuts from the original recipe, to cut the sweetness even farther. I also cut the salt by a third and used less oil. If I were making this for an event or holiday, I would probably increase the maple syrup or cut the amount of nuts to up the sweetness a bit. In the end, I tossed in some chia seeds, because, why not? Kids would love helping in the kitchen with this one! These are a good companion recipe to Smoky Roasted Chickpeas, for snacks for as appetizers.
