INGREDIENTS

1 cup raw whole almonds
1/2 cup shelled walnuts
1/4 cup raw pistachios
1 tablespoon plus 1 1/2 teaspoons honey
1 teaspoon canola oil
1/2 teaspoon chipotle powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
1 cup your favorite cereal (suggest Barbara’s Multigrain Puffins Cereal®, Chex®, Kelloggs Cracklin Oat Bran, or Cheerios®)
1 package (6 ounces or 1 1/4 cups) Driscoll’s Blueberries

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 300°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, combine almonds, walnuts, and pistachios. In a small saucepan, combine honey, oil, chipotle powder, cayenne, and cinnamon. Warm mixture over low heat, stirring well until warmed through. Pour honey mixture over nuts and stir with a rubber spatula until coated. Sprinkle salt over nuts and toss to combine.

Spread mixture in a single layer on prepared baking sheet. Bake until golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool completely before serving.

Transfer baked nut mixture to a large bowl. Add cereal and toss to combine. To serve, combine 1/4 cup nut mixture with 1/4 cup fresh blueberries.

Store nut mixture in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
