Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • 1 cup puffed grain, such as rice or quinoa
  • 1/2 cup white sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar
  • 1/2 teaspoon chipotle powder
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup roasted almonds
  • 1/2 cup dried mango, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1/2 cup roasted, salted peanuts
  • 1/2 cup roasted pepitas (hulled pumpkin seeds)
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.

Mix together the puffed grain, sesame seeds, agave, chipotle powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt and the cinnamon in a medium bowl. Spread the mixture in a thin layer on the prepared baking sheet. Bake, stirring halfway through, until golden brown, about 8 minutes. Let cool completely, and break into bite-size clusters.

Toss the cooled sesame clusters with the almonds, mango, peanuts, pepitas, raisins and chocolate chips in a large bowl. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.
