Homemade holiday treats – chilli lime nut mix

It is day 3 of my homemade holiday treats series and I am pleased to report that we are still going strong. holidaytreats And, although I am loving all the sweet treats that are slowly filling my fridge, I couldn’t resist throwing in a ‘savoury’ treat which happens to also be one of my favourite ‘nibbles’. Spiced nuts. Or in particular… chilli A chilli lime nut mix! IMG_3985 Which really are just nuts… IMG_3986 Tamari, honey, lime zest and chilli… IMG_3990 Roasted… IMG_3992 And voila! IMG_3999 Simple to make, but guaranteed to be gobbled up in no time at all. IMG_4000 My version ended up a little sticky, so I will hold off providing a specific recipe at this stage. It still needs some more tweaking, but I am sure to have one for you in the not too distant future. IMG_4004 The flavours, however, were rather tasty with the freshness of the lime zest and the hint of spice from the chilli. IMG_4001 I think they will make a nice alternative for those who are feeling a little sugar overloaded over the festive season (although these do have an element of sweetness in them owing to the honey!). What about you? Ever made your own nut mix?
