Honey Nuts Recipe

Delicious Honey Nuts Recipe

honey nuts recipe

Nuts are so good, and a large part of my families healing diet.  However my kids, like most, don’t really enjoy sitting down to a handful of plain nuts. 

That’s why I use nuts in my baking, smoothies and snacks! That way they still get the goodness of the nuts and their tummies stay healthy.

 

I think of nuts and seeds like vitamins for the mind and body!

 

Once you have these delicious nuts in a jar in the cupboard the uses are endless. I use these as a great snack all on their own, or as a topping for a bowl of fruit and muesli. 

The honey adds a sweetness, the salt is satisfying, and the cinnamon helps keep sugar levels balanced! This is a great recipe because the honey hardens into a yummy glaze that doesn’t stick to fingers. 

 

Honey Nuts Recipe

Ingredients:

2 cups of nuts (Use your favourites, I used almonds, cashews and walnuts for this recipe)

1 heaped tbsp of honey

1 heaped tsp of coconut sugar

1/2 tsp cinnamon

Pinch of sea salt

 

Method:

Preheat oven to 160 C.

Place the raw nuts on baking paper on an oven tray.

Then pop all ingredients EXCEPT the nuts into a small pot on the stove top and melt together.  

Bring to the boil and stir for 1-2 minutes, making sure it doesn’t burn.

Remove from heat and pour over the nuts.

Place the nut mix into the oven and bake for 5-10 minutes.  Watch they don’t burn, and take them out when they are lightly toasted.

Once toasted and removed from the oven, stir the mixture to evenly coat and let cool before popping in a glass jar to store.

We are pretty much Buddha bowl mad at our house, ESPECIALLY for lunch. 

Many people struggle worth lunch ideas, they have little time to make something, and little time to eat it.  Buddha bowls are idea because you can use leftovers to create them, cutting down on time and money PLUS you can make them ahead of time. 

If you are off out to work you can layer your Buddha Bowl in a jar of pop it in a container to show off at lunch time! 

This recipe has black bean bites which are a great source of protein to keep you going through they day.  These are equally yummy hot or cold and keep well in the fridge for the next days bowl.
