This sounds really nice!  Is it sticky or pretty dry? Could I bag it up to take when I travel so I don't have to eat off plan items?

Where does one purchase mint powder?  I've never seen it in a store here.

Should be available in an Indian store. Though we make it at home by drying the leaves in the sun & grinding them in a mixie.

AJ loves to munch on these. We keep a glass jar full at all times. I try to limit the cashews that I put in that mix. Other nuts are fine.

Thanks for the tip on where to find the mint powder.  I will look to see if we have such a store or I could also ask my Endo as he is from India.  We live in the middle of a large hispanic area, so many things are available for the spanish speaking people.

Thanks, glad to hear they are dry.  I found some mint powder on Amazon so I think I will make some of these up to take on my next travels.

Mint powder sounds intriguing.  I shop a lot at https://www.penzeys.com/shop/spices/spices and https://www.myspicesage.com/]I have to look around for it.
