Delicous Spiced Nuts

OK, here is another favorite recipe straight out of the pages of Mother Earth Living.

Spicy Cocktail Nuts

Spicy Cocktail Nuts for Summer

In last year’s holiday handmade-gift guide, we included two pages of food-based gifts. One of them was a recipe for spiced nuts out of Dorie Greenspan’s book Around My French Table. My dad was coming down for Father’s Day, and I knew it would be the perfect gift for him—he loves nuts and I knew he would enjoy these with a nice craft beer. I whipped up a bunch, following the instructions but replacing the white flour with coconut flour. They were absolutely delicious and addictive—so much so that I made them again a few weeks later for a 4th of July party we had. Again, they were a huge hit! I love this recipe because it yields a snack that satisfies the sweet tooth, yet offers the healthy fats and plant protein from mixed nuts, as well as antioxidant-loaded spices such as cinnamon and cayenne. I highly recommend trying this recipe.
