People in the health community go nuts about nuts. They’re good for you. They’re bad for you. I can’t keep it straight.
One thing that we take an enormous amount of pride in here at Pink Fortitude is that we do not judge. Everyone is on your own unique health journey with your own unique nutrition protocol. What works for some does not work for others. Our primary focus is to create recipes based on whole foods that are for health-conscious people with real lives.
With that being said, if you enjoy nuts, you’re really going to enjoy these spiced nuts.
When I think of spiced nuts, I didn’t realize that you have to worry about the ingredients because nuts are their own complete food. But after searching way too long on Pinterest, I realized that many recipes use egg whites and/or sugar in the recipe. I kept the ingredients simple for this recipe. We used vegan butter and maple syrup. We also used 1 tsp of each of the spices, but if you want some more kick and flavor, feel free to add some more.
If you are allergic to or do not care for a certain nut, then just replace it with another. You can add any combination of nuts, but you’re looking for approximately 4 cups, plus a little extra if you want to add in some seeds (pumpkin or sesame) or pistachios. I purposely left out peanuts in this recipe, but you can always add them in too, or Brazil nuts or macadamia nuts. You get the picture.
