The following is a sponsored post…I only post sponsored posts from products I’ve used and loved.
I am honored to have tried out this device from the good folks at Zippy. Most folks might use it for making popcorn, but I’ve been using it to make fresh roasted nuts, and it’s fantastic. It roasts evenly (no hot spots from the oven), and it coats the nuts evenly with whatever topping I deem to pour on them. My only complaint is that it yields too much goodness. I will be making fresh roasted nuts for everyone at the holidays, and until then, I will have to freeze the overflow of delicious freshly roasted nuts!
The folks over at Zippy have generously agreed to giveaway three of their snack makers to three of my lucky readers/followers, so head over to my Instagram and Facebook pages to get more details on how to enter!
Roasted Spiced Almonds
(Yields 5 cups nuts)
- 4 tablespoons olive oil (or use melted butter)
- 1 tablespoon coconut aminos
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon finely ground sea salt, plus additional for seasoning after roasting
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne
- 5 cups raw almonds or mixed raw nuts
In a small mixing bowl, whisk together all ingredients except the nuts. Place the Zippy on medium high heat. Add nuts. Place lid on roaster, leaving off silicon plug so there’s an opening hole in the lid. Let nuts roast, turning the crank every 1-2 minutes for 4-5 minutes, letting the nuts toast. Drizzle the coating mix into the nuts. Stir crank to coat nuts with coating. Continue roasting, stirring every 1-2 minutes for 3-5 additional minutes until nuts are roasted and fragrant, being careful not to burn the nuts or the spices of the coating. Remove from heat and let cool. Serve, seasoning with additional salt, if necessary.
