Holiday Spiced-Nut Mix

An easy, healthy, and delicious nut mix for your holiday parties.


Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 18 minutes


  • ½ cup almonds (raw or soaked and dehydrated)
  • ½ cup walnuts (raw or soaked and dehydrated)
  • 1/3 cup pepitas  (raw or soaked and dehydrated)
  • 1 tbs. maple syrup
  • 1 tbs. coconut oil
  • 2 tbs. chia seeds
  • ¼ tsp. sea salt
  • ¼ tsp. cinnamon or allspice
  • 1 heaping tbs. goji berries


  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.
  2. Combine nuts and seeds in a small bowl.
  3. In a small saucepan, add the maple syrup and coconut oil. Wisk the maple syrup and oil over medium-low heat for about 30 seconds until coconut oil is melted; remove from heat.
  4. Mix in the salt, spices, and chia seeds; stir until fully combined.
  5. Pour the nuts and seed mixture into the saucepan; using a rubber spatula to scrape up all the syrup and oil, combine the mixture until fully coated and evenly distributed.
  6. Line a baking pan with parchment or Silpat; pour the mixture out on the pan and distribute in one even layer (you will not need the entire width of the pan).
  7. Roast in the oven for 10 minutes. Stir, and roast another seven to eight minutes.
  8. Remove from oven; stir in goji berries while mixture is still warm. Let cool on pan. Once hardened, break up any large chunks and store in a glass container for up to five days.

Why No Numbers?

Readers sometimes ask us why we don’t publish nutrition information with our recipes. We believe that (barring specific medical advice to the contrary) if you’re eating primarily whole, healthy foods — an array of sustainably raised vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, legumes, meats, fish, eggs, whole-kernel grains, and healthy fats and oils — you probably don’t need to stress about the numbers. We prefer to focus on food quality and trust our bodies to tell us what we need.  — The Editors
