Cinnamon Spiced Nuts

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup  pine nuts
  • 1 Cup  pecan halves
  • 1 Cup  almonds
  • 1 Cup  macadamia nuts
  • 1 Cup  cashews
  • 1 Tablespoon  stevia sweetener
  • 1 Teaspoon  cinnamon, preferably organic
  • 1/2 Teaspoon  pumpkin pie spice, preferably organic
  • 1/2 Teaspoon  chili powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon  sea salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon  orange zest
  •    Extra-virgin olive oil, for serving

Put away the chips and try something healthy for a change. This healthy snack recipe is super tasty and also happens to be gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan. I use a mixture of pine nuts, pecan halves, almands, macadamia nuts, and cashews, but feel free to get creative.

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Place all nuts on a cookie sheet and roast until fragrant, 8 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the stevia, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, chili powder, salt, pepper, and orange zest and mix well to combine. Remove the toasted nuts from the oven and transfer to a large mixing bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and the spice mixture; gently toss to combine. Transfer the nuts to a serving dish. Serve warm.
