Perfect little nibbles to snack on Christmas Eve night or any night for that matter. Or why not make them during the month and gift them to someone you love 🙂
Serves 6 – 8
300 grams mixed nuts (if using brazil, roughly chop)
1 ½ tablespoons Manuka honey
1 teaspoon good quality olive oil
1 teaspoon finely chopped rosemary
½ teaspoon Himalayan salt
Mix the honey, oil, rosemary and salt in a small bowl, set aside.
Place a heavy based pan over medium heat, when it feels slightly hot, lower heat and add the nuts. Use a spatula to stir the nuts to ensure they are toasted evenly. This will approximately take 6 minutes. Add the honey mixture to the nuts stirring frequently so your mixture doesn’t burn, whilst coating the nuts evenly until honey mixture has evaporated. Transfer nuts to parchment paper, spread out and allow to cool.
Store in a glass jar in fridge. Nibble and Enjoy at your ease!
Manuka honey is produced in New Zealand by bees that pollinate the Manuka bush and is the nectar of the Manuka flower. It can only be made a few weeks in the year when the Manuka is in flower.
Manuka honey is well renowned for its unique healing benefits which is backed up by a large amount of research. Here are a few small examples of its healing powers: Improves sore throats and immunity, helps digestive issues – low stomach acid and acid reflux, helps combat MRSA, treats burns, wounds and ulcers, helps allergies, aids sleep etc.
Use as a natural wholefood alternative to refined sugar.
When purchasing Manuka honey CHECK THE LABEL. Make sure that it is 100% New Zealand Origin – Look for trusted New Zealand Manuka honey exported in retail packs from New Zealand (‘Product of New Zealand’ labelling). Check that it is Certified Methylglyoxal (MGO) content – Not all Manuka honey contains the same amount of this important compound. Look for certified MGO content on the label to ensure you are getting the real deal, and the right grade of Manuka honey for your needs.
