Cinnamon and Cocoa Roasted Cashews and Walnuts

I saw the original recipe for these the other day and knew I wanted to try them. Jordan doesn’t usually like to eat nuts unless they are covered in chocolate, so once I came across these I knew they would be perfect as a healthier substitute. The original recipe called for just cashews, but since cashews and walnuts were both on sale at sprouts I decided to do both. I also decided to use unsweetened cocoa to give it a little bit of a chocolatey flavor. This recipe is also whole 30 and paleo friendly! Here is the recipe:

-1/2 cup of walnuts

-1/2 cup of cashews

-2 teaspoons of coconut oil

-1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon

-1/2 teaspoon of unsweetened cocoa powder

-1 tablespoon of maple syrup (optional)

Place the cashews and walnuts in a bowl. Add the coconut oil, cinnamon, and unsweetened cocoa powder. Stir everything together and spread out on a baking sheet. Bake for 12 minutes at 325 degrees.

I personally thought they were addicting and delicious, but of course Jordan decided to mix his portion with chocolate chips.  😜
