“Pumpkin Seed Trail Mix & Fun For The Family”

There is nothing more exciting than a new animated movie that is fun for the whole family! Better yet, one that my child really looks forward to seeing!

This January, THE NUT JOB hits theaters! This movie is an action-packed comedy in fictional Oakton that follows the travails of Surly (voiced by Will Arnett), a mischievous squirrel, and his rat friend Buddy, who plan a nut store heist of outrageous proportions and unwittingly find themselves embroiled in a much more complicated and hilarious adventure.

Pumpkin Seed Trail Mix



1 cup raw pumpkin seeds

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

Coarse salt

1/2 cup large unsweetened coconut flakes

1/2 cup whole almonds (toasted)

1/2 cup dried cranberries

1/4 cup candied ginger (cut into 1/4-inch pieces)

Trail mix can be stored at room temperature for up to 2 weeks.


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine pumpkin seeds and olive oil on a rimmed baking sheet. Season with coarse salt. Toss to combine. Spread in a single layer. Toast, stirring halfway through, until golden, about 8 minutes

Place toasted pumpkin seeds, coconut flakes, almonds, dried cranberries, and candied ginger in a bowl. Mix to combine. Divide among jars, containers, or bags. Recipe Source: MSL, October 2009
