Epic Almond Nougat Recipe
One great way to add spice to your life and take part in the #YourSpicyLife movement is to try different foods you've never tried before, or try making healthy versions of otherwise unhealthy foods. This is where this Nougat recipe comes in, it's so delicious we couldn't help but share it with you. It is also gluten free, refined sugar free, lactose free, grain free, crap free... you get the idea.
Feel free to use your imagination with this recipe and throw in other ingredients like dried berries or use a different type of nut butter.
We'd love you to share your creations with us on instagram @YourSpicyLife and with the hashtag #YourSpicyLife so we can share them with the rest of the spicy life crew!
250g cashew butter (here is a recipe to make your own)
2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
1 tsp all spice
¼ cup honey
½ cup coconut flour
1 ½ cups dry roasted almonds
Combine cashew butter, coconut oil, all spice, honey and coconut flour in a bowl until well combined and it makes a consistency slightly wetter than dough.
Roughly chop the almonds, then stir them through the cashew butter mixture until well combined.
Line a bread tin or container of similar size with baking paper. Press the mixture into the tin so it is spread evenly and is smooth on top. Sprinkle with extra chopped almonds if you wish.
Pop in the freezer to set for about an hour.
Once removed from the freezer chop it up then you can store in the fridge for up to 5 days.
You can also freeze this if you want it to last longer.
