Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). In a medium bowl, mix together the maple syrup, coconut oil, salt, and cayenne.
  2. Then add in the nuts and toss to coat. Transfer to a parchment-lined baking tray, and roast on the middle rack of the oven for 5 minutes.
  3. Then remove from the oven, add the sesame seeds, toss to coat, and roast for another 5 - 7 minutes, or until lightly golden. The nuts continue to cook a little after being taken out of the oven and the mixture may still look wet but it will harden as it cools. Enjoy!

Such a great recipe. Just the right amount of sweet and spicy. Now I need a video explaining how to stop eating finishing them off in one go <3

Hi!
Could I add a handful of cashews to this? Or other nuts and make it a sorta trail mix with seseme seeds?

PUL Team - Dec. 8, 2021, 1:33 a.m.

Hi Sripradha, a trail mix sounds fun! Feel free to roast the nuts together or on separate pans. We'd just recommend keeping a close eye on the tray(s) in case they roast quicker or slower. We hope you enjoy the recipe 😊

Thank you❤️

I tried it! It's really good... I've used only almonds for the first batch... A added a little more pepper than recommended.. :P (oh, if u want to see it, I've tagged you on instagram- but my account is private, I have no clue of you'll be able to- you know, that is, if you like looking at people making your recipes, that is... ) Anyway! Thank you team pul🥰

Delicious, luxurious, very easy and festive as soon as you put them in a Christmas bowl ✨

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 😃
