  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the maple syrup, coconut oil, salt, and cayenne.
  3. Then add in the nuts and toss to combine.
  4. Transfer to a parchment-lined baking tray, and roast on the middle rack of the oven for 5 minutes.
  5. Then remove from the oven, add the sesame seeds, toss to coat, and roast for another 5 - 7 minutes, or until lightly golden. Note: the nuts continue to cook a little even after taken out of the oven and the mixture may still look wet but it will harden as it cools, so be careful not to over-cook the nuts.
  6. Allow the nuts to cool fully before enjoying.

Amazing simple and delicious recipe! I had mostly made Tamari almonds before, this is a really nice way to mix it up. My first try was without the cayenne pepper, but I think next time I'll be more daring :)

So glad to hear, Janna! The cayenne pepper helps add a nice touch of spice 😃
