Tasty Spiced Snacking Nuts {paleo + vegan}

 

Ohhh hi guys!!! I’m back with another tasty snack recipe for you today! Why is this so exciting? Because I’m a firm believer that the world could always use another tasty snack. A snack so good that it forces you stop doing whatever it is you’re doing and pay attention to all the happy things that are happening on your taste buds. These tasty spiced snack nuts are 100% that snack.

Tasty spiced snacking nuts are so easy to make and just the perfect amount of crispy bite and spice! Clean snacking at it's BEST!

I feel like this time of year there’s just so many opportunities for delicious snacks. There’s football games, movies nights (👋🏼 4:30 pm sunset!), Thanksgiving, Christmas, games nights, potlucks, etc etc etc.

We are officially in snacking season. Also known as I’m going to need to amp up my yoga routine season 😂 But really, I have no guilt about enjoying clean and tasty snacks. Snacks that really give you that moment of pure chill + bliss and FEEL indulgent without actually having a lot of junky ingredients in them.

I actually decided to create this simple little recipe for these snacking nuts after developing something of an addiction to some spiced nuts from the bulk foods section at our natural food store. They are seriously so good and it got to the point where I couldn’t walk out without a little bag of them for my drive home, even if I already had some at home from my last shopping trip 🙄

The ingredients were not so totally horrible, but there were a few extra things in there that I’m not always too keen on including in my diet – canola oil and maltodextrin being the two main ones (WHY IS PROCESSED CORN IN EVERYTHING?!)

So I decided to give roasting + spicing my own nuts a try, and they turned out EVEN BETTER than the grocery store version. Boy byeeeeeee.

Salted mocha hazelnut tart with Rawmio {vegan + paleo}

It’s almost the weekend and we are gonna talk DESSERT my friends! Specifically, dessert with lots of chocolate, coffee and hazelnuts. It’s a salted mocha hazelnut tart made with Rawmio raw chocolate and it’s sort of a big deal 😉

Salted mocha hazelnut tart with Rawmio chocolate is an incredibly decadent and satisfying vegan and paleo dessert! No bake, made with nutrient dense ingredients, and sprinkled with sea salt like every great chocolate dessert should be.

In more ways than one! I mean the obvious way in which it’s a big deal is staring right at you in that picture up there. All the delicious chocolatey things are happening in this recipe. Enough so that this was actually the dessert I made for my husbands birthday. But the other way in which it’s a big deal is how MUCH nutrients are packed in there!

and ohhh my goodness does cashew milk hit that perfect creamy/nutty/mouthfeel mark with an A+++

sometimes mouth feel can be an issue with homemade nut milk, especially if you don’t have a super powerful blender or the proper straining cloth/equipment.

but you know what? you don’t even have to worry about that with cashew milk because IT DOESN’T REQUIRE STRAINING!! you heard me right.

life without cashew milk = not worth living.
