Spiced Nut & Dried Fruit Trail Mix

Roasted nuts and dried fruits, tumbled with spices. The key to this recipe is toasting the nuts well, to really bring out the rich, nutty flavours. You can do this in a dry pan over a medium heat, or in a pre-heated oven like we have. All the nuts are unroasted and unsalted.

Ingredients

Method

  1. 1. First, preheat the oven to 190 °C/170 Fan/375 °F/Gas mark 5.
    2. Next, spread nuts on an oven baking tray in a single layer, making sure the tray isn’t overcrowded to ensure even roasting.
    3. Roast for 10 – 15 minutes (depending on the type of nut), toss the nuts on the tray halfway through. The nuts will be done when they smell toasted and appear slightly darker!
    4. Once roasted, remove the tray from the oven and set aside.
    5. Then, in a dry frying pan, add the spices with the salt and lightly toast them for 2 minutes until fragrant.
    6. Next, add the coconut oil to the pan, heat until melted and starting to bubble. It will be a thick spice paste. Continuously stir with a spatula.
    7. Add the slightly cooled nuts to a bowl and mix well.
    8. Pour the spiced oil over the top, mix well and stir through the fruit, making sure everything is well coated in the oil.
    9. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

Tips

To minimise food waste store nuts/seeds out of direct light and heat and always in an airtight container.
Nuts and seeds should always be well roasted before being used in recipes or eaten! Roasting nuts and seeds enhances the taste, aroma and crunchy texture. Roasting times will depend on the type of nut or seed, but both are best roasted in the oven spread on an oven baking tray in a single layer. Nuts and seeds can also be toasted in a dry frying pan.

Perfect served in corn or flour tacos, layered up with all the toppings! Guacamole, salsa or pickled cabbage would work really well.
