Sweet & Salty Nuts

I’m always on the search for tasty healthy snack recipes as I’m a grazer and always like having good snacks on hand.  When I discovered this Sweet Salty Nuts recipe I had one of those thoughts ‘this tastes too good to be healthy’.  It’s that sweet and salty combo that sends all those pleasure chemicals to your brain. And unfortunately it is hard to just have one handful. But hey, I’ll leave self control up to you. I’m working on my own!

This recipe is originally from Quirky Cooking and it’s as easy as tossing together salt, maple syrup and nuts and baking them in the oven.   Nuts that I find great in this recipe are almonds, cashews and pecans. But you can also add seeds like pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds to make a beautiful nut and seed snack mix. The possibilities are really as large as you want them to be when it comes to things you can add to this mix. This nut mix also goes beautifully on top of salad with feta cheese and balsamic vinegar.
