Recipe For Dairy-Free Party Mix

Reader Recipe: Buttery Party Mix

Looking for a dairy-free way to spice up your next party? Check out the party mix recipe GirlA shared in the Dairy Free Diva Recipe Exchange!

So easy! And a great way to grab some protein. You can sub in pecans if you’d like — I’m just not a big fan. These are for an artist reception at the Northern Colorado Writers Association that is tonight. I’m also bringing my favorite hummus. The artist happens to be my mother-in-law, watercolorist-extraordinaire.

Buttery Party Mix


4 Tbs. Earth Balance margarine, melted

1 Tbs. garlic salt

1/2 tsp. cayenne, or more for taste

1 cup raw, unsalted cashews

1 cup raw, unsalted walnuts

1 cup raw, unsalted almonds

1/2 Cup sunflower seeds


Preheat oven to 300 and line a baking sheet with foil. In a medium bowl, combine the nuts, garlic salt, and cayenne. Add the margarine and thoroughly combine. Layer onto the lined baking sheet and bake for about a half an hour. Stir and flip over the nuts. I know, that’s not easy, but you’ll be able to tell which side is which since the cooked side will be dry-looking. Bake another 20-30 minutes. Let cool, then transfer to an air tight container if not eating right away. Enjoy!
