I love a good snack mix, especially when it’s crunchy and savory and a touch salty. In short, I love this snack mix! It’s made by tossing raw cashews and coconut flakes with a drizzle of oil and some spices and then roasting until the mix is toasted. To flavor the mix I used ras el hanout, a Moroccan seasoning blend made with spices like cinnamon, cumin, coriander, ginger, paprika and turmeric.
Spiced Cashew and Coconut Snack Mix
1 cup raw whole cashews
1/2 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon ras el hanout Moroccan seasoning blend
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt or fine sea salt
1/2 cup organic coconut flakes (I used Let’s Do Organic)
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place cashews in a medium bowl; drizzle with olive oil and stir to coat cashews with oil. Sprinkle with ras el hanout seasoning and salt; mix well. Gently stir in coconut flakes.
Spread mixture on prepared pan. Bake 5 minutes; stir. Bake 5 to 7 minutes more until cashews and coconut are toasted. Cool completely.
Makes about 1 1/2 cups
