2 cups Nuts and Seeds (I like 2/3 cup pecans, almonds, sunflower nuts, walnuts, or any mixed nuts)

2 cups Dried Fruit (I like apricots, craisins and dried cherries; raisins are great too)

¼ cup Maple Syrup (pure best but could use pancake syrup)

1 ½ tsp Pumpkin Pies Spice (or 1 tsp cinnamon, ¼ tsp ginger, ¼ tsp ground gloves and 1/8 tsp nutmeg)

½ cup Caramel bits or chocolate chips (white, milk or dark)

Heat syrup in microwave safe measuring cup, just until boils, around 30 seconds. Whisk in spices.

Place nuts onto a parchment lined baking tray. Pour syrup mixture over and stir to mix.

Bake 350 degrees for 20 minutes, stirring around after 10 minutes.

Cool, then break apart and add dried fruits and bits or chips.

Store in an airtight jar at room temp.

Enjoy by the handful, or awesome on hot or cold cereal, yogurt or ice cream!
