MOROCCAN SWEET SPICED NUTS & CREAMY MAPLE PEANUT BUTTER
You’re gunna go nuts for these nuts! We were feeling peckish and wanted a snacky-snack, but Ian’s been eating too many sweeties recently so we decided to make a healthy vegan snack to munch on instead!
The Moroccan Sweet Spice Nuts are super delicious, perfect for snacking, and a bit different from the normal treats you can easily pick up! The combination of spices is really tasty, a mix of sweet, savoury and spicy - to satisfy everyone one of your taste buds. Plus, they’re super quick to make.
The creamy maple peanut butter is also a complete doddle to make.
We know it’s really easy to pick up a jar of peanut butter from the shops, but this way you can tweak it so it suits your tastes pefectly! We added a dash of maple syrup as we fancied something sweet, feel free to add any sweetness you fancy - it’s also easy to make it crunchy, you could even throw some raisins or cocoa nibs in there if you want!
Homemade vegan snacks for the win!
