Indian Spiced Nuts

I like having healthy snacks around me so I don't go searching for flamin' hot cheetos every once in a while.  I do have those temptations too.  This is such a great snack because it's really flavorful with the aromatic spices and coconut.  Plus, the nuts are very filling.  The different combinations of this recipe are endless. There are so many different flavor combinations of roasted nuts you can do.... you can do a sweet combination with egg whites, sugar and cinnamon or Japanese style with furikake.  Feel free to switch up the different kinds of nuts in the recipe also.

Adapted from Aarti Party
Makes 2 cups

1 cup unsalted raw almonds
1 cup unsalted cashews
4 tbs unsweetened shredded coconut
2 tbs canola oil 
1 tbs coriander
1 tbs cumin 
2 tsp garam masala
1 1/2 tsp sea salt

Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  Mix all the ingredients together in a medium bowl.  Spread mixture on baking sheet and bake for 40 minutes.  Remove from oven and allow it to cool.


This is so easy!  Just combine all ingredients together....

Spread the nuts on a baking sheet and bake the nuts at a low temperature for 40 minutes.

It's a ready made snack!  I usually have something like this sitting on my desk at work.  I'm a constant muncher.

why use egg white with the sweet combo? I brought some roasted almonds from farmers market, they were vanilla and cinnamon. Super yummy! I've been meaning to look up some recipes online so I can make them myself. Txs for posting this!!
