  1. Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C. Whisk the egg white, yeast extract and brown sugar in a big bowl. Tip in the mixed nuts and seed mix and stir to coat. Spread the nuts and seeds out over 1-2 baking sheets and bake for 10 mins.
  2. Meanwhile, spread out the sea salt and black pepper crackers on another tray and sprinkle with grated mature Cheddar.
  3. Remove the nut mix from the oven, sprinkle over the paprika and dried thyme and toss to coat. Bake the crackers for 5 mins and the nut mix for a further 5-10 mins, until brown and sticky. Leave both to cool, stirring the nuts occasionally to help them crisp up. Snap the crackers into bite-sized chunks. Tip both into a bowl and toss with the salted pretzels. Tuck in, or store in an airtight jar for up to 1 week.
