18 December, 2014

By Sharon Rosenrauch

This simple tamari and coconut nut mix is incredibly simple to make and is the ideal, convenient healthy snack or fancy pre-dinner appetizer, especially when entertaining. To remove the naturally occurring phytic acids from the nuts and aid nutrient absorption and digestion, pre-soak the nuts in filtered water for 4-6 hours, then rinse and drain prior to using. Experiment by using your favourite combinations of nuts and/or seeds. You can also add some toasted coconut flakes or dried fruit to the party. Anything goes!
