Sweet & Savory Roasted Nuts (VG + GF)

Sweet & Savory Nuts

 

Nuts are the perfect snack, if you ask me. I love to take just a handful of nuts everyday. You’ve to watch out not to overeat, because they do contain a lot of calories. But if you can keep it within the limits, they’re a good addition to your daily food intake. They contain a lot of protein and good fats!

Normally I just take a handful of raw cashews, because I really like the taste of them. But I wanted to have something different, so I thought; why not make a delicious mix of nuts with herbs and seeds. And this is what I came up with. Well okay, these are the things I had in the pantry haha.

Sweet & Savory Nuts

Serving 1 big jar

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp Maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp Coconut oil
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • 100 gr Raw cashews
  • 100 gr Raw almonds
  • ¼ tsp Rosemary
  • 1 tbsp Black sesame seeds
  • 1 tbsp White sesame seeds

 

Instructions:

  1. Heat up a skillet and add the maple syrup, coconut oil and salt. Stir to combine.
  2. Add the nuts and roast for 5-8 minutes on medium heat. Make sure not to burn them and keep stirring.
  3. Lower the heat; add the rosemary and the sesame seeds. Roast for another 1-2 minutes. Put on a baking sheet and let cool for 1 hour.

 

And then you got your delicious nuts. Keep in a sealed jar.

Enjoy!
