Sweet & Spicy Mixed Nuts
½ cup raw almonds
½ cup raw pecans
½ cup raw walnut halves
1 tablespoon Date Honey
1 tablespoon water
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
½ teaspoon chipotle chile seasoning
¼ teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Line an 11 x 17-inch baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly rub with olive oil and set aside. Put nuts in a large bowl. In a separate smaller bowl, mix Date Honey, water, olive oil, chipotle chile seasoning, and salt. Use a fork or small whisk to combine. Pour over nuts, and stir until well coated.
Spread nuts evenly on baking sheet. Bake 1 hour, stirring about halfway through cooking time. Cool and serve. Store in an airtight container.
Yield: 6 servings (serving size: about ¼ cup)
- Substitute any of the listed nuts with Brazil nuts, cashews, hazelnuts, or peanuts (not actually nuts at all, but legumes).
- Use red cayenne pepper in place of the chipotle chile seasoning (you may want to decrease the amount a little unless you like super spicy food!).
- This recipe can easily be doubled.
