INGREDIENTS:

INGREDIENTS:

Whole almonds 350 g 2 ¼ cups

Sliced almonds 100 g 1 cup

Hemp seeds 90 g ¾ cup

Coconut sugar, raw 140 g ¾ cup + 2 tbsp

Date syrup 60 g ¼ cup

Coconut oil 45 g ¼ cup

Water 30 g 2 tbsp

Sea salt 4 g ¾ tsp

Chai spice blend *9.5 g 1 ½ - 2 tbsp

Ground almonds As needed


INGREDIENTS:

INGREDIENTS:

*Chai spice blend base: please note, this blend makes more than what the recipe requires, allowing the ability to customize the amount of Chai, as desired.

Ginger, ground 6 g 3 tsp

Cinnamon, ground 5 g 2 tsp

Cloves, ground 2 g 1 tsp

Cardamom, ground 2.2 g 1 tsp

Nutmeg, ground 1.5 g ½ tsp

Black pepper, ground .6 g ¼ tsp

Cayenne pepper (optional) As needed Pinch


PREPARATION:

PREPARATION:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  2. Spread whole almonds evenly on a baking sheet and toast in oven until golden, stirring as needed. Do the same with the sliced almonds, these will require less time. Place toasted almonds in a medium bowl with the hemp seeds.
  3. In a medium pot, combine coconut sugar, date syrup, oil, water and sea salt together. Heat on medium and simmer for 2-3 minutes while stirring occasionally.
  4. Toss in nut mixture and chai spice blend, stirring all together to ensure an even coating. Cook on medium-low heat until the syrup evaporates, and the nut mixture tightens up. The longer you cook, the more brittle the final product will become. Stir constantly.
  5. Pour the cooked nut mixture out onto a parchment lined baking tray, spreading out thinly and evenly. Sprinkle with sea salt and extra chai spice as desired. Cool completely.
  6. Once cooled, break into bite-size pieces, toss with ground almond to prevent sticking, and enjoy.
