I have a new treat for you: it’s a yummy & easy paleo snack! Just today Tony was in the mood for some comfort food, so I whipped up this snack. Tony loves his chocolate covered almonds (he may have told you) but they don’t love him. This alternative lets you control your portion, choose the sweetness, and keep things paleo. It’s roasted salty walnuts with good quality dark chocolate.
First, you pick a small roasting dish and drop in the walnuts (or your nut of choice. If you have a nut allergy, this snack isn’t for you. Try slices of coconut as an alternative. I added a splash of olive oil and a helping of salt. Broil this, and be sure to watch carefully. Nuts burn easily.
Once roasted to satisfaction, remove the dish from the heat.
Now you have a choice: Do you want melted chocolate, or not melted? If not melted, then just let the entire dish cool, then break up pieces of a good quality chocolate that is high in coco (don’t miss our past interview with Kanata-based Jojo Coco) and eat like a mix.
If melted, add the dark chocolate while the nuts and pan are hot. Let melt, then mix. Add a sprinkle of salt to taste, if you think it needs more. (I’m thinking as I write this that a sprinkle of lavender could be quite good as well) Let pan cool, then move it into the freezer for 15 minutes. (Make yourself a hot drink in the meanwhile to enjoy with the nuts. Then take out of the freezer and enjoy!
Do you have a spin on the melted chocolate roasted nuts idea? Share your take in the comments! (And if you like this recipe idea, please help spread the good life by sharing this post).
Cheers to a good life and to paleo snacks!
