Last minute gift giving can be stressful, to say the least – but it doesn’t have to be.

Making a batch of these spiced nuts is incredibly easy as you probably have most, if not all of these ingredients on hand. 

A hint of spice that is not overwhelming and an incredibly tasty combination from cumin and coconut sugar*.

Put in a cellophane baggie, wrap with a ribbon and have them on hand for those oops-I-forgot! gift-giving moments.

makes 10 cups or 7 small gift bags
serving size; 1/4 cup

10 cups nuts (I like pecans, walnuts, cashews and pistachios)
1/2 c coconut oil, melted
2 tblsp ground cumin
1 tsp cayenne
1/4 c coconut sugar*
3 teaspoons sea salt

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

  1. In a large bowl, dump all your nuts.
  2. Mix together cumin and cayenne into your melted coconut oil and mix until thoroughly combined. 
  3. Pour oil mixture over nuts and stir gently, until combined.
  4. Sprinkle sugar and sea salt over nuts, stirring gently until evenly coated.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes.
  6. Allow to cool completely and store at room temperature.

*You can substitute regular sugar for the coconut sugar if you cannot find it, or even reduce or omit the sugar entirely!
