This easy Asian snack mix has the perfect combination of salty, spicy and crunchy with whole grains, healthy fats, and minerals to boot!
Popping in with a crazy easy recipe for a grab and go snack! I'm constantly asked for ideas for easy to pack, portable snacks, things you can throw in your purse or car that don't need refrigeration.
For years, I've been making mixes with whole grain cereal, nuts, and dried fruit or dark chocolate chips for a hint of sweetness. I'll pack them in small plastic containers or snack sized ziptop bags to throw in my purse as I'm running out the door. But my taste tends to lean more savory and spicy than sweet, and lately I've been getting a little bored with usual mixes.
So, after lingering in the snack aisle at Trader Joes, I got the inspiration for this Asian snack mix, which has the perfect blend of spicy, savory, salty and crunchy! Not only is this tastier than prepackaged Asian snack mixes, which are chock full of refined flour from whatever those puffy crunchy things are, but it's much more nutritious. With whole grains, healthy fats/protein from the nuts, and minerals from the toasted seaweed, this is a snack you'll feel good about!
