Nut Cluster Recipe: The Ingredients!
- The Nuts: almonds, walnuts, and pecans combine for the BEST combo ever in your soon-to-be fave nut clusters. However, you can totally use the nuts you have on hand, or go out and get your faves.
- Blanched Almond Flour
- Sea Salt: sea salt just adds a little something something to today’s nut clusters. But feel free to use the table salt you have on hand, or use that special occasion Himalayan pink salt! 😉
- Pure Maple Syrup
- Ground Cinnamon (Optional): optional, but highly recommended. Is it just me, or does cinnamon make nearly anything taste better? Try keeping the ground cinnamon in this nut cluster recipe to make sure it’s the absolute best.
How to Make This Nut Clusters Recipe
Always make sure to preheat your oven first. Delaying this might cause you to forget–I’ve definitely been there! 😉 So first, preheat your oven to 325°F. Then, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Now, add all of your nut cluster ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Use a wooden spoon or rubber spatula to stir and fold all of that nutty goodness together until well mixed.
Drop spoonfuls of the nut cluster mixture onto the sheet you prepared earlier. Make sure to form clusters that have a sturdy (and as Erik would say, “structurally sound”) base. How these clusters look when you place them in the oven will be how they look when you take ’em out. 😉
