I’m a chronic snacker. Grazing throughout the day is my weakness and heaven forbid there’s sweets around and I’m stressed, I always reach for the bad for me stuff first. And being home in quarantine? Let’s be honest. It’s not the best for stress eaters. After watching too many packs of cookies disappear, I vowed to start snacking healthier by keeping better-for-me snacks in the house. One thing I’m loving right now is homemade trail mix. It’s the perfect option for snackers like me and when I make it myself, I can control what goes in it. This Sweet and Spicy Trail Mix is my go-to right now

The star of this granola is the Huy Fong Original Sriracha Almonds. When I’m not snacking on these right out of the bag, they’re the perfect bit of kick in this homemade granola recipe.
These crunchy, premium almonds from California are roasted in peanut oil and made with bold, authentic Huy Fong Sriracha Seasoning.

They’re the perfect spicy snack. I love that my favorite Sriracha Sauce, is now snackable! 
These are the only almonds that use the official, full-flavored taste of the authentic Huy Fong brand Sauce.

With the heat in this granola coming from the sriracha almonds, I match that with a little sweetness from the dried fruit and dark chocolate chips.
These almonds are a delicious snack right from the bag. I have a bag at my desk just for this option.
But they elevate this homemade granola recipe and take it from boring to outstanding!
