This is a great pick me up and wonderful for the kids to take to school(without the cayenne). Also good for stocking stuffers! Feel free to add other fruit and/or nuts to your liking. Adapted from Healthy Cooking with Ellie Krieger. African, also Western and Southwestern

This is such a great energy mix!!!! It is quick to make, wonderful to look at, healthy, versatile and best of all so yummy! I scaled the recipe down to serve 3 people and still this made quite a lot, which is perfect as it is such a great snack! I used dried cherries in place of the apricots like WI Cheesehead and included the optional mangoes. In place of some of the pumpkin seeds I used sesame seeds. I really enjoy the flavours of all fruits, the seeds and almonds together. So good! Didnt include the cayenne this time as I wasnt looking for anything hot, but might add it next time. THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this wonderful recipe with us, Sharon! Made and reviewed for 1-2-3-Hit-Wonders April 2010.
