Haile Thomas should have put a warning label on the curry crunch trail mix from her cookbook, “Living Lively: 80 Plant-based Recipes to Activate Your Power & Feed Your Potential.” It tasted heavenly with all the flavor notes a palate loves: sweet, savory, and crunchy.
I used most of the ingredients as mentioned below. However, I omitted the coconut sugar. I substituted the raw cashews with unsalted whole cashews. It made my entire house smell like fall fragrances, triggering holiday vibes.
Overall, I like the simplicity of this recipe; anyone can prepare it. Add it to your back-to-school snack list or a Netflix and chill evening. Enjoy!
