Snack recipe: Spicy nut mix



1 cup raw almonds

1 cup walnuts

1 cup raw cashews

1 small clove garlic

1 teaspoon curry powder

1 teaspoon paprika

½ tsp Himalayan pink salt

2 teaspoon maple syrup

2 tablespoons coconut oil (melted)


Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F). 

Combine all nuts in a mixing bowl.

Crush and finely chop the garlic then add to the nuts, along with the salt, curry powder and paprika. Mix thoroughly.

If your coconut oil is solid, melt it to a liquid form in the microwave for 20 seconds or in a small pot over a low heat on the stove.

Add melted coconut and maple syrup to the nuts and stir well until all nuts are evenly coated.

Line a large baking tray with baking paper and spread with a layer of nuts.

Roast the nuts in the oven for 15 minutes, turning every 5 minutes to make sure they don’t burn.

Cool the nuts completely on the tray before storing in an airtight container.
