Chipotle & Rosemary Roasted Christmas Nuts

You’ve undoubtedly heard of Christmas cookies, but have you ever heard of Christmas nuts? They are the newest thing over at our house! Don’t get me wrong, I live for Christmas cookies, but sometimes I need to get my salty fix in with all the sweets going around this time of year. These chipotle rosemary roasted cashews do the trick! They satisfy my sweet tooth (let’s be honest, I really have sweet TEETH, there’s more than one), but they also give the salty/savory aspects too. AND, package them up with a pretty Christmas bow, and you’ve got yourself a delicious gift! AND probably my favorite part of this, is that they actually offer some nutritional value! Unlike most other treats this time of year, nuts are packed with protein and healthy fats that keep you full and satisfied, and the rosemary provides iron, calcium, and vitamin B6. If you’re looking for a treat that is gluten free and dairy free, then this is your golden ticket! Ok now that I’ve gone on about how and why these are delicious, here is the proof! Check out the recipe from Barefoot Contessa here!
