under 60mins

Ingredients for servings

  • 1 cup(s) banana chips

  • 1 cup(s) unsweetened, flaked coconut

  • 0.75 cup(s) whole almonds

  • 0.5 cup(s) pecans

  • 0.3333 cup(s) pepitas

  • 3 tbsp maple syrup

  • 1 to 2 tbsp coconut oil

  • 0.5 tbsp liquid/coconut aminos or low-sodium soy sauce/tamari

  • 0.5 tsp freshly cracked black pepper

  • 0.5 tsp chili powder

  • 0.5 tsp smoked paprika

  • 0.25 tsp cinnamon

  • 0.25 tsp cumin

  • 0.25 cup(s) hemp hearts

  • 0.25 cup(s) chia seeds

  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast


  • Preheat the oven to 160°C. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray it with nonstick spray.

  • On the sheet, combine the banana chips, coconut, almonds and pecans.

  • In a saucepan, warm the maple syrup, coconut oil, aminos/soy sauce, pepper, chili powder, paprika, cinnamon and cumin until the oil is melted. Pour the mixture over the mix on the baking sheet and toss well.

  • Sprinkle on the hemp hearts and chia seeds and toss once more. After some testing, I find that sprinkling them on after adding the wet ingredients helps them to stick and not clump on the sheet.

  • Finally, sprinkle the mixture with nutritional yeast. Toss lightly once more if needed.

  • Bake for 15 minutes, then toss and bake for 15 minutes more, until the mix is golden.

  • Remove it from the oven and toss, then let it cool completely.

  • Break it apart and portion out into bags. If desired, you can add a dried fruit, like cherries or cranberries, in with the mix.
