We are heading off for Easter and if like me you consume very little sugar it's going to be a tricky celebration! So last night I rustled up some sweet and sour nuts so that I have something to munch on whilst the kids indulge in choccy eggs. I have also baked up some of Ella Woodward's brownie's for Good Friday guests, these are so good and I recommend her book, Deliciously Ella, particularly for those of you eating gluten free, here is the brownie recipe.
For those that are in touch with me via Instagram you see my daily foodspirations but as many of you will miss them I thought the nuts were perfect to share, I hope it will keep your sugar cravings at bay!
Sweet and Sour Nuts
Choose your favourite nuts, I went for pecan, cashew, pistachio and pine nuts. Warm up some coconut oil, add the nuts and bake for about 7 mins on 180 or top right in the aga, don't leave the room as they will need turning a couple of times and can burn easily especially in aga's (just getting used to my new one)! Bring out and add chia seeds, raisins and a touch of cinnamon and bake for another 4 mins. Take out and whilst still hot drizzle organic maple syrup and sprinkle Hymalayan pink salt - done! Store in a kilner jar, snack anytime and try for breakfast with yoghurt and fruit, I recommend coconut or goat yoghurt. Enjoy!
