MSA'S MAPLE SPICED NUTS

I like to have healthy snacks close by so that when hunger strikes and my evil side is unleashed, I have something to calm the caged beast. Just so you know, I do get quite cranky when I’m hungry, so if you ever want to ask me for a favour, wait until I’m fed and I’ve returned to my nicer self :-).

One of my favourite snacks are spiced nuts – I can eat bowls of them in one go! Instead of finding a recipe for spiced nuts online, I decided to create my own maple spiced nuts by just experimenting with the ingredients I had in my kitchen cupboards. Thankfully, my experiment was a success, so I decided to share my recipe with you. I used a mix of cashews, walnuts and pecans, but this recipe would work just as well with almonds or even macadamia nuts.

I decided not to use any butter and I used only 2 tablespoons of maple syrup, so say goodbye to saturated fat and lots of processed sugar. In small amounts, my maple spiced nuts are actually a healthy snack.  So do control yourself and eat them in moderation – I must confess that I fail hopelessly when warm roasted nuts are close by! The struggle is real.

Have a look at the ingredients below and give this easy maple spiced nut recipe a try.

MSA'S MAPLE SPICED NUTS

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup raw Cashews
  • 1/2 cup Walnuts
  • 1/2 cup Pecans
  • 2 tbsp Maple syrup
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Chilli flakes
  • 1/4 tsp Ground ginger
  • Rapeseed oil spray

Directions:

  1. Heat oven to 150 degrees celsius (this is approximately 302 degrees Fahrenheit).
  2. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper and spray lightly with Rapeseed oil.
  3. Use a mortar and pestle to finely grind the chilli flakes.
  4. Toss all ingredients together in a bowl until the nuts are well coated.
  5. Bake for approximately 15 minutes until the nuts are a golden brown colour.
  6. Remove nuts from the oven and stir them before transferring onto a plate to cool (this step is important because if you don’t stir and transfer them they will set into a block on your baking tray – not fun, trust me!).
