And so continues my love affair with marmite.
These oven baked cashews with marmite (which are amazing, by the way) had me thinking about how easy itâ€™ll be to try my own marmite nuts recipes.
Fortunately, I brought two huge pots of marmite from vacation which Iâ€™ve been using mostly in sandwiches and hot beverages
Itâ€™s been my main source of vitamin B12 given that Iâ€™m vegetarian and also donâ€™t eat eggs or dairy.
As luck would have it (again), I had some raw almonds left over from my last batch of granola, so I decided to try oven baked almonds glazed with marmite.
For about two cups of raw almonds, I added a pinch of salt, a tablespoon of olive oil and two tablespoons of marmite.
I used the oil to help coat and bind the marmite to the almonds. In hindsight, I probably should have used flour for a less sticky outcome.
I put all ingredients in a bowl and tossed them around a bit until the almonds were well coated with the marmite mixture.
I spread out the almonds on a baking sheet and popped it into the toaster oven.
I let it bake for about twenty minutes, stirring intermittently until they turned a deep golden hue.
It turned out looking like those glazed nuts you have around Christmas.
The marmite and almonds made for a nice savoury combination; they were so addictive I couldnâ€™t stop eating them.
Everyone liked them, even marmite haters.
These nuts werenâ€™t around for long!
