My go to snack is normally a handful of nuts. Any type of nut will do. In fact if you look in my fridge I have a shelf dedicated to nuts, I’ve containers of raw almonds, cashews, pecans, walnuts, macadamia and seeds too! If you look inside any of my handbags you’ll probably discover some nuts in a wee ziploc bag. Sometimes though I need to add some flavours to the nuts to liven them up a wee bit.
Although I’ve posted a recipe for spicy nuts I love trying different flavours and these cashews have proved a BIG hit on the people I have tested them on! These are super easy to make and store well in an airtight container. Great to whip up a batch if you’re having friends over and you want to do some nibbles. If you don’t like cashews, try with any other nut which you like.
