This recipe combines three ingredients that I find very addictive. And adds a bit of salt to them, so you know all self control is out the window. Maple. Chilli. Roasted Nuts. They are sweet, spicy, salty and ridiculous. My boyfriend has also humbly pointed out that he made a chilli and honey peanut version of these a while back so I am stealing his ideas. My dad all makes maple glazed pecans all the time so I guess I amalgamated both their recipes and made it mine, mine, mine. Haha happy holidays and all that stuff – get roasting!
1 cup cashews
1 cup pecans
1Tbs (enough to coat)
2 tsp chilli flakes
1 tsp cayenne pepper
sea salt to season
Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius and line a baking tray with baking paper.
In a bowl, combine all ingredients and toss to combine. Lay in a single layer on the baking tray. Cook for 5 minutes then turn the oven down to 150 and continue roasting until a deep golden colour. This took approx. 10 more minutes in my oven but it’s a bit loopy at the moment so keep an eye on them!
Cool on the tray before transferring to an airtight container. Try not to eat all in one sitting!
