A super simple recipe to make your own maple flavoured nuts at home!
2 cups raw nuts, or raw mixed nuts. Along with our own raw nut mix, raw whole nuts such as almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, hazelnuts, macadamias, pecans, and walnuts all work excellently on their own!
2 tbsp maple syrup, the darker the more maple flavour
1 generous pinch of sea salt
Optional, but since it’s fun to play with your food, try adding a few dashes of cinnamon, pumpkin spice, or vanilla powder to spice things up!
Pre heat your oven to 300 f.
In a bowl stir together the raw nuts, maple syrup, and a generous pinch of salt until the nuts are evenly coated.
Spread the maple syrup coated raw nuts onto a lined baking tray, a silicone mat or parchment paper work well, and place in your pre-heated oven. Stir the nuts every 10 minutes. After 30 minutes (or longer if your nuts don’t look golden brown) remove from the oven and allow to completely cool to room temperature.
To get the maple syrup to turn into a delicious candy like coating it does need to be baked for 30 minutes or longer. Some nuts you may need to cut open to check doneness towards the end. Each oven, and personal preference is different so baking time can vary by a few minutes.
