Sugar-Free – The Best spicy nut and seed mix

Nuts and seeds are packed full of nutritional goodness but most commercially produced varieties are dry roasted, packed with loads of salt and sugar, and are really REALLY unhealthy. If you like a savory nibble from time to time, try this excellent recipe but beware, you’ll be making quite a big batch so I strongly suggest that you divide the end product into sensibly-sized portions of around an ounce to avoid overeating. I make sure I separate the mix into small, Ziploc bags (available on to make sure I don’t inadvertently eat too much. This also helps keep them fresher for longer.

  1. It would be good if you would proofread your comments before posting.

    I like the recipes but they seem populated with stuff I don’t have and don’t know where to get. What is “rapeseed oil?” “Ras-el-hanout?” I see that’s an African spice but I don’t live in Africa and I don’t think WalMart carries it. How about coming down to earth and giving us some recipes we can use.

    • Maybe you need to look further than WalMart? These recipes are great and if you are serious about giving up suger….. Put some effort in!!
