Reminiscing on Childhood
Did you ever eat those Snyder’s Honey Mustard Pretzels growing up? Those little pretzel bites that were so addicting? And they left that delicious yellow honey mustard goodness all over your finger tips that you would lick off after enjoying your snack. Like Cheetos, but way better. If you know, you know. If you don’t, you’re thinking, “Wow Reed, sounds like honey mustard pretzels defined your childhood lol.” In an attempt to make a healthy, paleo snack mix, I stumbled upon creating a recipe that tastes JUST LIKE THOSE PRETZELS.
In true fashion, upon pulling these out of the oven and trying them, I turned to my dog and exclaimed, “Maiya, THESE ARE DELICIOUS!” As though she cared. Then she tried one, and understood.
This Stuff Is Irresistible
The crunch of the plantain chips paired with the mixed nuts, and the incredible glaze that coats each piece is next level. As I was shooting pictures of this paleo snack mix recipe I had to consciously tell myself to stop snagging a piece out of the bowl, because I simply couldn’t resist. Just like the honey mustard pretzels from my childhood 🙂
Pile of Paleo Snack Mix Handful of Paleo Snack Mix
It is also worth mentioning that I am 100% a sweet over savory gal and this recipe still blows me away. Nearly every snack recipe I’ve posted has been a sweet snack, so maybe it’s time I venture to the other side for a bit 😉 The small amount of honey in this recipe so perfectly balances out the mustard and garlic. It’s just enough to make your taste buds really dance!

Preheat your oven to 300 degrees.
Combine the plantain chips and raw mixed nuts in a bowl.
