Sweet and Salty Nut Recipe in 5 minutes flat!
Sometimes we just need to make something sweet and salty and satisfying NOW! I have even made this super fast in the morning before work and school for a snack. I love nuts in pretty much every shape and size. This is a fun one that is super versatile as far as ingredients go. I think I say that about every recipe I post! Maybe that could be my cook book niche Versatile Eats! Oh, and no, I am not writing a cook book! At least not a real hold in your hands book. I do have aspirations for a few little e-books though.
Okay so are you ready for this deliciousness?
Super Fast – like a Luge! Sweet and Salty Nuts
Handful of raw cashews
Handful of raw sunflower seeds
Handful of raw pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
Handful of coconut (flakes are best but unsweetened shredded is fine)
2 Tbls. maple syrup (or honey)
Sprinkle of salt
Add any dried fruits or other nuts or seeds you like! I think cacao nibs would be an outstanding addition!
Toss the nuts and coconut in a non-stick pan, cook on medium heat till they start to smell good and get a little brown (just a few minutes) At this point turn off the heat and quickly toss in the maple syrup and stir fast till they are coated – it will sizzle a bit. Sprinkle with salt, let them cool then eat them!
