I love roasted nuts and seeds especially pepitas! These make a great hostess gift or little treat for those awesome neighbors. Yes neighbors the surprise is up, you are probably getting a bag of these!
The recipe is so simple and so fast it is truly done from beginning to end in less than 5 minutes!
What you need – raw nuts or seeds of your choosing (but watch the video and you will see the whole process!)
Soft nuts like – cashews, pecans or walnuts
Seeds – sunflower seeds, pepitas, hemp seeds
1 cup of whatever nuts/seeds you choose
1 Tbls real maple syrup ( agave or honey work as well)
a sprinkle of salt and or cinnamon or ginger
I most often do pepitas, sunflower seeds, pecans and cashews – always raw to start!
I make about 1 full cup at a time in a non-stick skillet
Roast till they are popping and just smoking a tiny bit then toss in the maple syrup turn off the burner and stir like crazy!
Put on a plate and let cool till dry and crisp then store in a sealed container for up to 2 weeks (they will never last that long!)
