Ingredients

  • 1 cup banana chips
  • 1 cup unsweetened, flaked coconut
  • ¾ cup whole almonds
  • ½ cup pecans
  • 1/3 cup pepitas
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon liquid/coconut aminos or low-sodium soy sauce/tamari
  • ½ teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon cumin
  • ¼ cup hemp hearts
  • ¼ cup chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast

Instructions 

  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray it with nonstick spray.
  • On the sheet, combine the banana chips, coconut, almonds and pecans.
  • In a saucepan, warm the maple syrup, coconut oil, aminos/soy sauce, pepper, chili powder, paprika, cinnamon and cumin until the oil is melted. Pour the mixture over the mix on the baking sheet and toss well.
  • Sprinkle on the hemp hearts and chia seeds and toss once more. After lots of testing, I find that sprinkling them on after adding the wet ingredients helps them to stick and not clump on the sheet.
  • Finally, sprinkle the mixture with nutritional yeast. Toss lightly once more if needed.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, then toss and bake for 15 minutes more, until the mix is golden. Remove it from the oven and toss, then let it cool completely. Break it apart and portion out into bags. If desired, you can add a dried fruit, like cherries or cranberries, in with the mix.
