3 cups mixed raw nuts (e.g. cashews, pistachios, pecans, walnuts, almonds, pepita seeds)
- 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
- ½ cup pure maple syrup
- ½ cup tahini
- 2 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil
- 1¼ teaspoons of salt
- 1 teaspoon of Chai Baking Spice
- Preheat oven to 150°C. Line a rimmed baking sheet with baking paper or foil.
- Roughly chop nuts and add them along with the coconut flakes into a large bowl.
- Whisk maple syrup, tahini, oil, salt, and cardamom in a separate medium bowl until combined.
- Pour tahini syrup over nut mixture and toss with a spatula until evenly coated.
- Scrape onto prepared sheet. Bake mixture, tossing and rotating sheet from front to back every 10–15 minutes, until golden brown, careful not to burn (approximately 30–35 minutes total).
- Let cool on the baking sheet (nuts will crisp as they cool), about 20 minutes. Break into pieces before serving.
