copy cat trader joes

The other day my Instagram friend, @cre808 posted a picture of some snacks she received from her friend.

One that popped out at me was Trader Joes (TJs) Everything but the Bagel Nut Duo.

Of course we don't have TJs here in Japan, so I looked online to see if they had a list of the ingredients.

They did, so I adapted Ellie Krieger's Spiced Nut recipe and made a small batch for our pupus (appetizers).

If you want to try making your own, here is what I used....

1 cup mixed nuts & pumpkin seeds 
1/2 tablespoon maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon everything but the bagel spice

Mix everything well.
Put on parchment and bake in 170F (325 C) for 15 to 20 minutes (I baked mine for 15).
Cool and keep in airtight container.

NOTES: this was delicious.

A little sweet, salty, definitely making this again!

p.s. have a good week, heard that there is a hurricane approaching Hawaii, please be safe and take care everyone!

Glad that the Hurricane missed Hawaii, though I heard that there's some flooding and stuff Kat.

Kirk, it is a good thing the hurricane didn't hit Oahu or any of the other islands...that would have been hectic with the pandemic...

Take care!
