This recipe is from my 1st book, The SIBO Diet Plan, which features a meal plan and a variety of recipes for people on varying SIBO diets.
In the book, I recommend waiting at least until week 4 to add whole nuts into the diet as they are hard to digest for some people. That said, they are great to have around for snacks, to bring to a cocktail party or give as holiday gifts.
Prep Time: 5 minutes/Cook Time: 20 minutes
Makes 4 cups of nuts.
4 cups raw nuts or seeds (any combination of almonds, macadamia nuts, walnuts, pecans, sunflower seeds, etc.)
3 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, coconut oil, organic grass fed butter of ghee
2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, thyme, sage or a combination
1 teaspoon smoked paprika (optional)
2 teaspoons sea salt, plus more as needed
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1. Preheat the oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
2. On the prepared sheet, mix the nuts, maple syrup, olive oil or other oil/fat, herbs, paprika (optional), and 2 teaspoons of salt and pepper.
3. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring twice during the baking time. Make sure the nuts are evenly distributed on the baking sheet after stirring.
4. Remove the nuts from the oven and set on a wire rack to cool.
