This snack mix is great to munch on anytime. The recommended serving size is appx. 1/2 C.

Wheat nuts can be found in most natural food stores, and the "kick" is from the added tablespoon of chili powder. This can be omitted if you'd prefer your snack mix less spicy.


  • 1/4 C sugar-free pancake syrup
  • 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter, cut up in small chunks
  • 1 Tbsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 3 C air-popped popcorn
  • 3 C mixed nuts, unsalted
  • 1 C wheat nuts
  • 1/3 C dried blueberries, no sugar added


Pour the syrup into a medium-sized saucepan. Place over low heat. Add the butter and let it begin to melt. Sprinkle in the chili powder, salt, and cinnamon. Stirring often, continue to cook on low until the butter has completely melted.

Preheat the oven temperature to 300 degrees. Toss together the popcorn, mixed nuts, wheat nuts, and blueberries in a large baking pan. Pour the syrup mixture over the top and toss to coat all the ingredients completely. Bake 25 minutes or until golden brown, stirring the snack mix a couple of times during baking to ensure it browns evenly. Cool the snack mix to room temperature before storing in a container.
