Almonds, walnuts and pecans star in this Espresso Snack Mix. Made decadent with oatmeal squares, pretzels, chocolate covered espresso beans, and white chocolate chips, it’s a tasty treat that’s heart healthy too!

Did you know, in addition to hosting Valentine’s Day, and being National African American History month, February is American Heart Month too?
So what’s this American Heart Month about? Heart health, of course. Maybe it’s having a baby, but Eric and I are definitely more aware of our own health and wellness these days. We try to get outside for exercise as much as we can (you know, when it’s not stupid degrees farenheit with 20 inches of snow on the ground), and we try to pay attention to what we eat.
Sure, there are a lot of desserts on My Baking Addiction, but they’re made with care, and we practice portion control a lot of the time, giving most of what I make away to family and friends so they can enjoy too.
One thing we’re getting more into, since I started working with Fisher Nuts, is the health benefits of the various nuts they offer. For example, did you know walnuts are extremely high in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids? Good for your, I tell ya! Eating a handful of walnuts to get in some of those omega fatty acids in, instead of fish oil? I can get down with that, and in a hurry. Walnuts > Fish to my tastebuds, if I’m honest with you.
Did you know Fisher Nuts has nine products certified heart healthy by the American Heart Association? That is some serious snacking!
Pick up Fisher Pecan Halves, Pecan Chips, Chopped Pecans, Walnut Halves & Pieces, Walnut Chips, Chopped Walnuts, Whole Natural Almonds, Sliced Almonds, and Slivered Almonds – any of these on their own is a heart healthy snack.
But making this Espresso Snack Mix with almonds, walnuts, pecans, oatmeal squares (oatmeal is heart healthy too!), pretzels, dark chocolate covered espresso beans, and white chocolate chips – a no brainer for getting those omega-3s in. It’s super easy, and so dang tasty!
Don’t get me wrong, this is still a treat, but it’s a better-for-you treat than just eating straight white chocolate chips by the handful, you know what I mean? Plus, a little goes a loooong way. With all that protein from the nuts, and energy from the coffee beans, pretzels, and oatmeal squares, this is a snack that’ll keep you going for a while.
Celebrate your heart, and those it loves, this month. Make this Espresso Snack Mix for everyone to enjoy.
