“using the great spice mixes in the Herbies range, you can make your own style of savoury nuts to serve at your next bbq”
what you need
2 cups mixed raw or dry roasted nuts and/or seeds (I used nuts that have been activated )
Option 1- Spicy Lime Mixed Nuts
2 tsp Herbies Balmian & Rozelle Spice Mix
1 tbsp lime juice
1 tsp lime zest
1 1/2 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp coconut sugar
1 tsp Murray River Salt Flakes
Option 2 – Sweet Native BBQ Mixed Nuts
3 tsp Herbies Native BBQ Spice Mix
1 ½ tbsp Niulife Coconut Aminos
1 ½ tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp coconut sugar
what to do
Preheat the oven to 170°C. Prepare a baking tray with baking paper.
Combine the nuts with your preferred flavour option until completely covered with the mix.
Layer the nuts over the baking tray and place in the oven.
Roast for 10 – 15 minutes until lightly browned and crunchy. Check the nuts occasionally during the cooking time as the sugar and coconut aminos will caramelise and could burn quickly.
Remove from oven and cool the nuts on tray before storing in glass jars to keep fresh.
You can use any mix of nuts and seeds you like. Walnuts, pecans, almonds, cashews, macadamias, pumpkin seeds or sesame seeds are all great options.
Play around with the flavours to find the balance that you like, whether a little sweeter or more savoury. The Balmain and Rozelle Spice Mix has a little kick so if you like some “punch” with your nuts, you could add a little more spice to this mix.
You could also remove the coconut sugar from the Native BBQ mix if you wish to have more of the BBQ flavour in the nuts.
If you want to double or half the amount of nuts you want to make, just adjust the quantities accordingly.
