Serves 1 ½ cups

Total Time:

This dessert blends the filling protein power of nuts with a little cocoa powder (great in antioxidants) and ginger (great anti-inflammatory.) These spicy, sweet nuts are great as a garnish for dessert or to add to your lunch box to finish out a meal instead of a sugary, flour-y cookie. You might also try putting up a batch in a decorated mason jar as a simple, home-made gift.
