If you’re looking for a new driving snack you can make in your truck, Food Network has you covered with their slow cooker spiced nuts recipe.

This recipe mixes raw pecans and unsalted roasted cashews with cayenne pepper, orange zest, ground cinnamon and pure maple syrup to give them a whole new savory flavor. It cooks in about four hours and yields four cups.

You can eat it as a side with your lunch or dinner, or store it up to five days as a snack for while you’re over the road.

Not only is this recipe high in protein because of the nuts, but it’s also low sodium and diabetes-friendly.
