My favorite and everyone else’s from what I’ve seen when I make them. Use a mild Chile powder or paprika. Kids like a little heat, I’ve found. Braggs is a soybean derivative that is not fermented, is lighter in taste and is a great, healthy all-purpose seasoning. Soaked nuts are much easier to digest and lightly toasting them keeps them from going trans fatty. Enzymatically, they are a lot more energy giving when soaked.
2 cups of almonds or other nut
3 cups of filtered water
2 tsp of sea salt
Soak nuts overnight in water and sea salt. Drain well in the morning and place on a lightly oiled cookie sheet.
2 tsp of mild chili powder or paprika
1/2 tsp of sea salt
2 tsp of Braggs
Bake in 300-degree oven for 20 minutes. Pull out and add mild chili powder, sea salt and Braggs. Stir and put back in oven for 10 more minutes. Take out and stir again. Turn off oven and let cool down inside. They will crisp up a little more when left to air dry. Voilla! Snacking nuts, healthy style.
Variation: For a tasty sweet variation, add 1-2 Tblsp of raw honey with the chili powder, sea salt and Braggs for the final 10 minutes. Stir a couple of times while they are cooling to prevent them from sticking to the pan.
