Cinnamon Maple Macadamias
Simply chop 1 1/2 cups (non-gmo, organic) macadamia nuts and mix in 1 teaspoon of organic cinnamon. Next. . .
Spread the nuts out on a foil lined baking pan, and bake for 20-25 minutes at 350°F. Be careful to not let the nuts burn.
Take the baking dish out of the oven, and drizzle a 1/4 cup of pure maple (organic) syrup over the the nuts. Stir. Bake this for about five more minutes. Cool on the sheet.completely before removing from the foil. Simply break it up with your hands.
These nuts are wonderful on oatmeal or yogurt. I just have to share. The original recipe is from a book I own, but it's also online. I just adapted it with organic ingredients.
I simply store it in a canning jar near the oatmeal. It's nutritional, yet slightly sweet. Kids, and adults, can easily pack a bit of this to eat with yogurt at school or work too.
Also, and my sister-in-law tells me that topping your oatmeal with chopped peanuts and my home canned Cinnamon-Blueberry Jam is delicious too.
