Salty & Sweet... Hot Maple Roast Nuts

Salty & Sweet… Hot Maple Roast Nuts

“Mummy I’m hungry”, “Mummy I need a snaaaaack” My children love these as a snack, and I feel like they’re getting some nourishment in the process… These are fab after school, or at 5pm for me when I’m making the kids dinner… Or part of a picky lunch along with houmous, crudites, sourdough and olives… They’re really easy to do too…

Ingredients:

1 handful Raw Cashew Nuts

1 handful Raw Almonds

1 handful pumpkin seeds

1 handful sunflower seeds

1 tbsp maple syrup

1 pinch sea salt

Black Pepper

Method:

1. Pre-heat the oven to 150C.

2. Scatter the nuts across a roasting tray, cover with 1 tbsp maple syrup, a generous pinch of sea-salt & a crack of black pepper.

3. Roast for 15 minutes, remove and stir, roast for a further 5-10 minutes or until the nuts are gently browning.

4. Remove to a serving bowl to cool.  The nuts will be sticky but as the maple syrup cools, it will become crunchy.  Break apart any large lumps and serve.

Delicious!
