One thing that always manages to sneak into the house at Christmas and that is the basket of nuts. Someone will snatch the walnuts and brazil nuts and then you’re left with hazelnuts. It’s time to stop this madness. Make these instead.
1tbsp runny honey
1/2tsp coconut oil
200gr plain cashews (not roasted, or salted)
15gr dessicated coconut
1/2 small dried red chilli, finely chopped
1, Add the honey and coconut oil into a small suacepan and place over a low heat. When the oil has melted, give it a good stir and then add in the nuts. Stir this well until the nuts are completely covered in the honey/oil combo.
2, Remove from the heat and add in the rest of the ingredients. Toss these together so the coconut and chilli sticks to the nuts. Scrape all of this out onto a lined baking sheet.
3, Spread the nuts out, making sure you dont dislodge too much of the coconut from them and bake for 5-7 minutes until golden brown at 180 o/c. You might have to give them a little shake every now and then so they colour evenly.
4, Leave to cool completely before snacking.
