Roasted Nuts

This supereasy snack is great to make in large batches and store. Perfect to nibble on with a drink, or serve to friends who call in!
You can of course choose any combination of nuts you like, but I'm a fan of the almond/pecan mix.


100g Shelled Almonds
100g Blanched Almonds
100g Pecans
25g Real Butter
2 Tablespoons of Stevia or other sugar substitute
1 Teaspoon of Salt

Preheat the oven to 180/350 degrees.


1. Put the butter in a bowl large enough to hold all the nuts and then melt in the microwave for 30 seconds.

2. Pour all the nuts into the melted butter mixture, ensuring the nuts are well coated. Sprinkle over the Stevia and salt and mix well.

3. Spread out on a baking tray and bake at 180/350 degrees for 30 minutes. Toss the nuts half way through cooking.

4. Allow to stand for a few minutes then serve warm, or store in an airtight container for a week.

Prefer your snacks salty to sweet, or vice versa? Don't be afraid to play with the sugar and salt ratios!
