This month’s Recipe Redux theme focuses on road trips. Road trips rule the summer. And if you’re like me, no road trip is complete without a stash of snacks. While it’s fun to browse the convenience store for old school treats, it’s often hard to find healthy options at a gas station. Solution? Pack your own.
I went back and forth about what to share. Of course, frozen grapes, trail mix, nuts, whole grain crackers and things like turkey jerky are all great options. But I decided to share one of my favorite anytime snack recipes. I keep a stash of Ancho Maple Roasted Cashews in the pantry for snacking at home and on the go. Kinda sweet with a hint of smoky heat, these Ancho Maple Roasted Cashews are a flavorful, protein packed way to squash hunger on the road. And to top it off, the recipe is very easy.
I used a cookie sheet covered in parchment for easy clean up. A Silpat® would also work. You’ll want to use one or the other unless you have a love for pan scrubbing. I don’t. In fact, I’d cook way more if it weren’t for the clean up. But I digress… check out the recipe below.
