Last minute hostess gift or super fast snack! Maple Roasted Nuts and or Seeds!


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!)
