Maple Cinnamon Crunch

I don't know about you but we've got leftovers for days in our house. I'm really getting creative with things like turkey and brussels sprouts. On top of that we inevitably forget to put something out for our guests to enjoy. Does anyone else do that? All your guests leave, you're packing away the food and cleaning up the mess, you open up the fridge or pantry and boom! You forgot to serve the apple cider or the veggies and dip of the macaroni and cheese (just kidding, we didn't have mac and cheese!). Last year it was the cranberry sauce. This year it we discovered a few pounds of nuts in our pantry just after the last of our company departed. Well, when life hands you lemons, eat bacon... and when life hands you 4 pounds of nuts, take some of it and make this...

Maple Cinnamon Crunch

• 1 cup almonds (raw and soaked)
• 1 cup walnuts
• 1 1/2 cups unsweetened coconut flakes
• 2 tbsp. coconut oil
• 2 tsp. cinnamon
• 1 to 2 tbsp. maple syrup (more or less as desired)
• pinch of sea salt

Melt coconut oil in large pan over medium heat. Add nuts and toss for about 1 minutes. Add cinnamon, syrup, salt and coconut flakes.

Saute until coconut flakes are slightly browned.

Let cool (or not) and enjoy!
