Roasted Mixed Nuts
These are a delicious and satisfying snack. All the flavors meld together and they are just superb while they are still warm. This is a large batch of roasted mixed nuts and makes about 40 (1/4 Cup) servings combined. We surely eat more than ¼ cup [chuckle].
1 pkg (14oz) Peanuts
1 pkg (9oz) Raw Cashews
1 pkg (9.5) Raw Almonds
1 pkg (7oz) Walnuts
2 Tbsp Earth Balance (Vegan Butter)
1 Tsp Cayenne Pepper
2 sprigs fresh Rosemary, removed from stems, chopped roughly (about 2 Tbsp)
2 Tsp Brown Sugar
2 Tbsp Raw Blue Agave
2 Tsp Sea Salt
½ Tsp Cinnamon
-Preheat oven 375 degrees.
-In a large bowl toss raw nuts to combine. Spread evenly on an ungreased baking sheet (2) – I used two.
-Roast in oven for 10-12 minutes. – I give them a shake halfway through so they roast evenly.
-While nuts are roasting in large bowl add: Earth Balance, Cayenne Pepper, Rosemary, Brown Sugar, Agave, Salt and Cinnamon. –You can use all brown sugar or all agave as the sweetener if you prefer to adjust.
-After nuts have been roasted add them directly to mixture while they are hot. Enjoy!
Great for a party or store in airtight container (room temp or in refrigerator) and pack them for lunch to snack on.
