Ingredients
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 Tbsp real maple syrup
  • 3 C raw almonds
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • 2 Tbsp sesame seeds
Instructions
  1. On medium-low heat, warm up coconut oil and syrup in a large sauté pan for about 1 minute until melted and mixed.
  2. Add almonds, cinnamon and sea salt. Mix together and increase heat to medium.
  3. Stir every few minutes. The raw almonds need about 15 minutes to get fully toasted.
  4. Keep an eye on them so they don't burn.
  5. Stir in sesame seeds for the last two minutes.
  6. Pour nuts onto a parchment-lined baking sheet to cool.
  7. Store preferably in the refrigerator to last longer.
Notes
*Best stored in refrigerator to preserve the natural oils that came out from warming the nuts.
*I like to store in a mason jar so there's no plastic bag waste!
*Try other nuts besides almonds, or a nut mixture!
