Maple Cinnamon Roasted Cashews

Thursday, 15 December 2016

Honey roasted cashews used to be one of my favourite ever Christmas snacks before going vegan. I could so easily sit and munch my way through a whole tub of these little gems in one sitting. They are dangerously addictive. So I had to create a vegan version and I think they are maybe even better than I remember. This recipe is so simple and you only need four ingredients. I'm planning on making a few batches of these to put into jars and give as Christmas presents too, because who wouldn't love some homemade festive spiced nuts. I think handmade presents are just the cutest, and it totally shows you put in a lot of effort because you actually spent time to make it. I just need to find some nice jar lids or coverings to hide the fact that I've eaten many, many jars of peanut butter this year... no regrets.

You could also use this same recipe with any nuts you like, cashews are just my absolute fave but I reckon this would also be wonderful with almonds or peanuts, oh or maybe a mix of all three - I need to try that!

You will need: 
1 cup cashews
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon mixed spice

- Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees celsius.
- In a bowl, mix together the maple syrup, cinnamon and mixed spice.
- Add the cashews and mix until they are all coated with the maple mixture.
- Put the nuts onto a lined baking tray and roast in the oven for 12-15 minutes, giving them a mix halfway through.
