It's hump day and I'm thinking, how much more can I get accomplished before the weekend? Sometimes it just seems so overwhelming right before the holidays. But it is a Happy overwhelming . So I thought, what can I make that will fill the house with a great smell and taste really yummy without requiring a lot of time or effort?
Everything I do in a day is usually centered around the kitchen and food. Which also means writing, taking pictures and blogging about it. But I really enjoy doing it. So I decided let me experiment with some nuts again. Cashews usually go well with a lot of different spices but I was looking for a subtle flavor and I think I definitely hit the nail on the head with this blend. They are just slow roasted in the oven and the smell is phenomenal. I just love Google by the way. I wasn't sure about my spelling of phenomenal and she just read it off to me.. So anyway the scent fills your house for hours afterwards.
I also thought as I was making them that they could also make a nice little gift for the holiday. I think most people appreciate hand made items especially ones they can eat. So if you're looking for an easy thoughtful gift idea why not roast up some nuts.
So I hope you try these Cinnamon Cashews and fill your home with the lovely aroma!!!
- 2 cups of raw cashews
- 1 tbsp. of unrefined virgin coconut oil
- ½ tsp. cinnamon
- ¼ tsp. sea salt*
- dash of cayenne pepper
- Preheat oven to 250 degrees
- Pour cashews into large mixing bowl
- Add remaining ingredients and combine well
- I usually just mix this all up with my hands cause coconut oil solidifies under about 75 degrees
- Bake in preheated oven approximately 30 minutes stirring at least one time during cooking
