- ½ cup roasted unsalted cashews roughly chopped
- ½ cup roasted unsalted almonds roughly chopped
- ½ cup honey
- ¼ cup coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

Grease and line an 8” x 8” baking pan with 2 sheets of parchment – crossed so they cover up all side of the pan.
In a heavy bottomed saucepan, combine honey, coconut oil, and spices.
Bring to a boil over med-low heat. Add lemon juice and stir to blend. Keep at a low boil for 4 minutes without stirring. Then remove from heat and allow bubbling to settle.
Combine Cheerios and nuts in a large bowl.
Pour over the honey mixture. Stir to combine everything so all of the Cheerios are well coated.
Scrape mixture into prepared pan. Press down gently with the spatula to compress any air space out of the mixture. You can also place another piece of parchment on top and press down firmly to compress everything.
