Commitments to family, work, school, friends, and house chores can -literally- make us NUTS! I find myself more frequently on-the-go, than not, and surrounded by fast food options that may not support my wellness goals.
So my favorite make ahead on-the-go snack - warmed cinnamon spice nuts. They are filled with sweetness, protein, unsaturated fats, and Vitamin E. Protein can help to satisfy hunger and increase satiety. The healthy fat found in almonds is a MUFA that supports heart health. The Omega3 fatty acids found in walnuts are anti-inflammatory support heart health, arthritis pain, healing injuries and tissues, brain health, eye health, and may even boost mood!
This recipe is versatile, too! I like the sweet version, but you COULD switch out the spices for savory ones, and even spicy ones - my husbands favorite. Try granulated garlic, onion powder, black pepper, and dried rosemary. It can be an excellent appetizer for get togethers and holiday parties.
3 cups raw organic almonds - sprouted, impossible
1 cup raw organic walnuts
1 cup raw organic pumpkin seeds
You can swap in any nuts or seeds you want!
2 organic egg whites
2 tbsp granulated monk fruit or 4-5 drops of liquid stevia
2 tbsp organic cinnamon
2 tsp organic ginger powder
2 tsp organic ground nutmeg
2 tsp organic ground clove
2 tsp Himalayan sea salt
1 tsp organic turmeric
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Whisk together all coating ingredients in a large bowl.
Add nuts and and seeds to the bowl and mix to coat them all.
Lay them out in a thin layer on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Careful to not overlap the nuts. This ensure they are crispy, no soggy.
Bake for 10 minutes.
Mix, flip, and rotate then bake for another 8-10 minutes.
MONITOR closely! You don't want to burn the nuts!
Once the coating begins to harden and stick to the nuts, remove from oven
Allow to cool. Once cooled, the coating should be hard.
Store nuts in a cookie tin or leftover container with air circulation.
Eat within 2 weeks.
