Chia Seed Gravy
These nuts serve double duty as a delicious treat and a home air freshener, as well. The high smoke point of the avocado oil helps to safely roast these nuts without fear of degrading nutrients, creating toxins, and trans fats. Enjoy as a simple snack, in a salad, or over top of ice cream!
Yields: 2 cups
2 T. grade B maple syrup
1 t. vanilla extract
1 t. sea salt
2 t. Pumpkin Pie Spice
Pinch cayenne pepper (optional)
2 c. nuts of your choice (almonds/pecans are pictured here)
Preheat oven to 325F. Line a half sheet pan with a silpat mat or parchment paper. In a medium bowl, whisk together avocado oil, maple syrup, vanilla, salt, Pumpkin Pie Spice, and cayenne pepper. Add nuts and stir well. Pour onto silpat-lined sheet pan and spread out evenly with a spatula. Cook 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally throughout the cook time. Remove, stir again (it will seem sticky), and let cool to room temperature in the pan. Break apart and store in a zip-top bag.
