I’ve been making these little gems for years now! These gorgeous nuts are just so more-ish!! Once you eat a couple you can’t help but go back for a whole handful! You won’t ever need to buy those flavoured nuts in the supermarket again!
They make gorgeous little gifts in little glass jars with ribbons wrapped around, or just served as an hors de oeuvre at any big gathering or celebration! Or perhaps the perfect side to when you have people over for celebratory drinks! You’
I use a range of different nuts! Whatever you have in the cupboard will work, but I do find some of the nicest are macadamias, cashew, almonds, walnuts, pecans etc. I will say that I don’t usually buy the packets of ‘mixed nuts’ though as the walnuts, pecans and hazelnuts all seem to go rancid quicker than cashews and macadamias do, so they tend to stale the whole packet! Instead, I buy my nuts in bulk and keep them in the fridge or freezer to extend their shelf life.
You’ll notice I use egg white and you might be wondering why! Well it’s because the egg white helps all the spices stick nicely to the nuts and not fall off! Genius really!!
I do use some coconut or rapadura sugar. This isn’t necessary but it does add a nice sweetness and balance of flavour. If you are avoiding sugars just leave it out.

Looking for an alternative to the ‘ol bowl of cereal for breakfast?? Well these are a whole lot better than a bowl full of cereal! Think crispy, fudgey, and smooth!These little bombs are packed with loads of seeds, nuts, butter and coconut oil and are sure to go down a treat!
They have some organic crispy cereal in them and are loaded with all sorts of little superfood boosters. Filled with antioxidants found in the goji berries and the raw cacao, these foods help to stop free radicals damaging the cells.
The good fats from the coconut, butter and nuts are so important for growth development and cell function. They can also be used as a fantastic source of energy, especially for kids!
When my little ones aren’t feeling like eggs or other savoury options, these are fantastic alternative – he loves them!
You can press the mix into a tin and slice it up for something different too! They are best eaten straight from the fridge, as they will get softer as they sit out.
