Chili Lime Roasted Nuts

Roasted nuts make for a delicious crunchy snack, and are sure to please your party guests!

Hiiiiiiiiii!

 

I hope you all had a really great weekend.  Why do weekends have to go by so fast?

 

Mine was spent 1) celebrating mine & Joe’s 11-year anniversary, 2) putting together new recipes & blog posts for you guys!, 3) cuddling with Winston on the couch while catching up on The Bachelorrette (no shame) and 4) WATCHING THE VIKINGS WIN ON SUNDAY  (did that actually happen?!!? oh, and did you guys catch the purple & yellow smoothie I posted?!).

 

Speaking of football, these roasted nuts make the perfect snack/appetizer for upcoming Superbowl parties.  They’re a bit healthier than your typical Superbowl foods, with a dose of fiber, protein and healthy fats.  The combination of honey + lime + spices adds a sweet & spicy kick.  Warning: these roasted nuts are hard to put down!

 

You can also enjoy roasted nuts as a healthy snack.  After making this recipe, I divided it into several single-size portions (1/4 cup each) so that I can enjoy the nuts as a snack whenever I want!

 

Hope you enjoy 🙂
