Gingerbread Spiced Nuts
A Crunchy Snack Dusted with Holiday Inspired Flavour
Prep & Cooking: 20-25 minutes
Makes: 3 cups
3 cups of whole raw nuts (not roasted or salted), a combination of pecans, cashews, and walnuts works best, but use what you have.
3 tbsp brown sugar or coconut sugar
2 tablespoons melted plant-based butter
½ tbsp of molasses
½ tsp each cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and ginger
Pinch of ground cloves
Pinch of salt
Preheat your oven to 350° and prepare a baking sheet.
In a large bowl, combine sugar, salt, spices, molasses, and oil. Add the nuts and toss until evenly coated. Bake for 10-15 minutes; stirring once every 5 minutes. Watch the nuts closely as they will burn easily. Your nose knows! If you can smell toasted nuts, it’s time to take them out. Allow the nuts to cool before serving.
