Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 cup walnut halves
  • 1 cup almonds unsalted
  • 1 cup Chex cereal corn or rice - whichever you prefer!
  • 1 cup unsalted pepitas
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup raisins
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips
  • additional pumpkin pie spice & cinnamon if desired
Instructions
  1. In a small bowl, mix brown sugar, cinnamon & pumpkin pie spice.
  2. Put the walnuts, almonds, Chex, and pepitas in a large bowl.
  3. In a third bowl, stir together pumpkin puree, maple syrup & vanilla.
  4. Spoon the pumpkin/syrup/vanilla mixture over the nuts & cereal and add the sugar and spices. Stir until everything's well coated and evenly distributed.
  5. Spread the mixture on a cookie sheet and bake in a 250-degree preheated oven for 30 minutes. Stir several times while baking to prevent burning.
  6. After cooled to room temperature, stir in the raisins and chocolate chips and store in an airtight container.
  7. Optional: If you'd like to add a little extra cinnamon/spice flavor, you can toss in a little extra pumpkin pie spice & cinnamon at the end. Just a teaspoon or two of each should do the trick, but use as much or as little as you'd like.
