Sweet and Spicy Snackin’ Nuts

Nuts are super underrated however they are a great source of plant based protein, healthy fats, and I love how you can add them to pretty much anything for a crunchy texture. These nuts are sweetened with maple syrup and have a little spicy kick to them from the paprika and cayenne that give a great sweet and spicy flavor! They’re quite addicting and can be eaten alone or tossed into a salad.

Yield: 1 3/4 cups

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup raw unsalted almonds
  • 1/2 cup raw unsalted pistachios
  • 1/2 cup raw unsalted cashews
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
  • pinch of salt

Procedure:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
  2. In medium sized bowl, add almonds, pistachios, cashews, maple syrup, paprika, cayenne, salt and mix all together.
  3. Pour mixture onto baking sheet and spread evenly into one layer using a spatula.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes.
  5. Take out of oven and stir nuts around with a spatula.
  6. Place back in the oven for another 5-7 minutes until nuts are sticky and roasted.
  7. Let cool for 10 minutes and store an in airtight container for 2 weeks.
