Cinnamon Spiced Nuts

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.

Cinnamon Shopping Tip

Spices and dried herbs have a shelf life too, and lose potency over time. The rule of thumb is, if your spices are over two years old, it's time to buy some new ones.

Cinnamon Cooking Tip

Toasting whole spices before using them intensifies their aroma and flavor.
