Mmmmmm yum! The Hot Maple Man Mix is a trail mix designed with men in mind! Joe created this recipe for our Father’s Day Food Gifts podcast. It has sweetness from the maple syrup, saltiness from the bacon and a spiciness from the cayenne, cinnamon and spiced rum.

Of COURSE ladies can enjoy this too (and Bec did!) but we thought we’d bring you something a bit different for Father’s Day.

It’s easy to make and the flavour combination has this set to become a firm favourite with fathers!

We hope you enjoy it, and we wish all the dads a Happy Father’s Day!
