Alehouse Agave and Chipotle Mixed Nuts

2 Tbsp. agave nectar
1 1/2 tsp. dried chipotle powder
3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 1/2 pecans, almonds, unsalted peanuts, and/or walnuts
3/4 cup Wheat Chex or Chex Mix
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
3/4 tsp. seasoned salt (try Lawry's brand)

  • Preheat the oven to 325°F. Combine the agave, chipotle powder, and cinnamon in a medium-size skillet and heat over low heat until  warmed through. Add the nuts and stir to coat evenly.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread the nuts and Wheat Chex in a single layer on the sheet. Bake until the nuts are fragrant, about 10 to 15 minutes, stirring once. Allow the nuts to cool slightly for 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Combine the brown sugar and seasoned salt in a medium-size bowl. Add the warm nuts and Wheat Chex and toss to coat evenly. Spread out the nuts on a sheet of waxed paper and let dry completely. Once dry, store the nuts in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
