We make our own mixed nut blends rather than buying them because:
- It’s cheaper to create a bulk batch of your own nut mix
- No additives, oils, salts, sugars
- We can make it with just the ingredients we want, and none of what we don’t want
We’re putting almost everything into this recipe and are using all the best nuts and super berries available.
We’ve carefully pre-shopped the best options we could find for you on Amazon to make it simple if you want to shop for these ingredients. If you do, we will receive pocket change from Amazon for that, which helps support this site at no cost to you. Or, you can search directly on Amazon or your favorite store yourself. It just may be hard to find everything in one place, which is why we’ve taken the time to gather it for you here.
So this is the no-holds-barred recipe, that includes just about every nut (not seeds) and every dried berry option. (Well almost… will try adding Brazil Nuts and Pistachios next time :-)). From there, you can cut back on anything… change any quantities to more of your favorites, and none of the ones you don’t like.
THIS MAKES A LARGE BATCH THAT CAN LAST FOR WEEKS. E.g., at 56 1/4 cup serving size, a family of four could enjoy one serving per day each for 14 days.
Pre-made nut mixes are not just for snacks though. The come in really handy for many things, such as adding to your own homemade granola, oatmeal, buckwheat, cookie batter, bread bake, such , oat clusters, yogurt, and cottage cheese for at-the-ready instant healthy snacks.
We keep a bag of homemade nut mix in the car or bag when traveling for a quick energy snack. This keeps us from getting hungry and succumbing to packaged snacks which typically have preservatives, additives, sugar, oil and often wheat and soy.
