Roasted Nuts

July 10th, 2012 No comments


  • Any and all  of the nuts and seeds that  you like! You do want to start with raw and unsalted nuts/seeds.
  • Any of the following oils:   coconut or avocado
  • Any or all of the following seasonings:

Cinnamon, sea salt, peppers,  turmeric, cardamon, ginger,cumin, chili powder, cloves, nutmeg, curry powder, stevia powder for sweetness

I like the following combinations:

Sweet and Spicy:

cinnamon, ginger, cloves, nut meg, sea salt, Cayenne pepper, stevia powder

Tex Mex Mix:

sea salt, chili powder, cumin, cayenne, fresh squeezed  lime

Spicy Indian:

ginger, cardamon, turmeric,cayenne pepper, sea salt, curry powder


Place nuts and seeds in a bowl large enough to cover them in water. Allow nuts and seeds to soak for at least 4 hours, I usually soak mine over night. Once you are done soaking, strain and rinse them.  Pre heat oven to 200 degrees, drizzle oil over nuts, place them in a single layer on a cookie sheet and roast for about 2 hours. After roasting is done, add seasonings and enjoy!
