This paleo snack mix is addictive. Salty, smoky and garlicky, it reminds me of traditional snack mix, but without the not-so-desirable ingredients. Just pure nutty goodness accented with garlic infused olive oil and smoked spices.

You can make this snack mix with just about any kind of nuts. I used a cup of sliced almonds and they were perfect in the mix. They were thin and crispy with plenty of surface area for the spicy coating. The walnuts were crunchy with lots of nooks and crannies to hold the spices. The cashews added a little bit of sweetness.

I have been buying a lot of smoked spices lately and this was a perfect opportunity to use some of my latest finds. I used a Yakima apple wood smoked sea salt and a combination of Spanish sweet and hot paprika, along with some roasted garlic olive oil. The result was a smoky paleo snack mix that would complement any drink.
