Roasted Nuts & Seeds Snacks

Roasted Nuts & Seeds Snacks

Introduction

Have you ever tasted roasted nuts fresh from the oven? MMMM! Before I started making this snack, DH used to bring home bags of chips and salty snacks and neither of us could resist them. Now I make up a month of salt-free, heart-healthy snacks that take care of our savory cravings and give us our healthy fats for the day. Store in zip-lock snack bags and you are ready to grab and go whenever the munchies hit. Great to keep in the glove box for when you need a snack on the run. (my discount grocery store has a bulk food section with all kinds of raw nuts) Have you ever tasted roasted nuts fresh from the oven? MMMM!

Ingredients

    1 cup raw sunflower seeds (or dry roasted without salt)
    1 cup raw pumpkin seeds
    2 cup raw almonds
    1 cup raw walnut pieces or halves
    1 cup raw pecan pieces or halves
    1 cup raw peanuts (or dry roasted without salt)
    1 cup raw cashew pieces or halves
    3/4 cup raw hazelnuts
    1/2 cup pistachios, roasted and salted

Directions

Roast nuts separately by type in single layer on cookie sheets lined with parchment paper or foil. Roast at 350 degrees for the following times:
Almonds - 20 minutes
Walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts - 15 minutes
Cashews, peanuts - 10 minutes
Sunflower and pumpkin - 5-7 minutes (can be added without roasting if you like)
Pistachio nuts - I have only found them roasted and salted, so they are the only added salt in this recipe.

Warning - when the nuts are fresh out of the oven, the aroma is so tempting, it might draw the family into the kitchen. Stand by with wooden spoon in hand to protect your recipe from marrauders!

After the nuts cool, I package 1/4 cup serving in zip-lock snack bag, then store the bags in a gallon freezer bag. They will stay fresh for weeks, or they freeze beautifully.

Number of Servings: 45

    Excellent use of my favorite nutmeats. Can rasins or currants be added to this. How about dried apple or banana slices. - 2/10/10

    Dried fruit is delicious with this mix - I use chopped dates, apricot halves, dried pineapple, cranberries, raisins, dried apple - whatever strikes my fancy. I still use 1/2 cup as the serving size - the calories are about the same, but less fat and more carbs. Enjoy!

  • I roasted most of these last night for a friend who cannot eat any salt. I used onion and chili powder to flavor and they're delish!! - 9/5/10
