Happy Memorial Day.

Just in time for your afternoon BBQ I’ve created a lil’ nibble that will fare perfectly with your grillin’ eats.

Everybody loves peanuts.

Especially when they’re baked nice n’ spicy with a touch of sweetness.

I created these tasty lil’ suckers in a few mere minutes using simple, pure ingredients that I had on hand in my pantry and fridge.

This is a great dish to serve with appetizers as well as after hours when you’re sitting around the campfire or fire pit with the citronella candles burning, playing a round of cards and enjoying your Memorial Day with family and friends.

In a pinch for a quick appetizer to bring to your BBQ today?

No worries.  You can easily whip up these lil’ nuts in a flash.

They’re sure to please your hungry pals.

Their taste buds will be jumpin’ … and so will yours as they’re a bit spicy.

But crunchy n’ delish, too.


A gluten-free n’ vegan appetizer that’s easy to make and fun to pop into your mouth?

I’ll take it.

Nothing like a clean, simple recipe that you can enjoy anytime of the day.

Pack up those extra nuts and toss the left-overs into your morning oatmeal, afternoon salads and evening stir-fries.

They’ll be a great go-to snack that’s protein rich, easily transportable and tasty all week long.

What can I say?

Sometimes I just feel like a nut.

  1. Can you do this with pistachios (while they’re still in the shell?) I’m looking to add some flavor to them.
