This Recipe Serves 15

Ingredients

2 tablespoons Splenda Brown Sugar Blend
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 cup raw, unsalted pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
1 cup unsalted sunflower seeds
1 cup unsalted slivered almonds
¼ cup sesame seeds
Cooking Spray
1.2 ounce bag freeze dried blueberries

Instructions

  1. Preheat an oven to 300 degrees.
  2. Coat a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
  3. In a bowl, combine Splenda Brown Sugar, cayenne pepper, pumkin seeds, sunflower seeds, almonds and sesame seeds and toss to coat.
  4. Spread mixture onto the baking sheet and then spray again with a coating of cooking spray.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes to ensure even browning.
  6. Remove from oven and set aside to cool. When cool, toss nut mixture in a bowl with the freeze dried blueberries.

Chef Tip: Be sure you are buying freeze dried blueberries, not just regular dried blueberries. The freeze dried are very different nutritionally and are crisp instead of chewy.
