- 1/2 cup raw almonds
- 1/2 cup raw pecans
- 1 cup hulled sunflower seeds
- 1 tsp. maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp. chili powder
- 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- 3/4 tsp. fine sea salt
Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, stir together all the ingredients. Spread the mixture on the prepared baking sheet in a flat, single layer without too many clumps.
Bake for 35 minutes, tossing the mixture a couple of times throughout. Cool completely (the nuts will be crunchy once cool).
Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to one week or in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
Tip: Cooking raw nuts at a low temperature prevents browning, which can form acrylamide, a probable human carcinogen.
