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 it’ll be to try my own marmite nuts recipes.
Fortunately, I brought two huge pots of marmite from vacation which I’ve been using mostly in sandwiches and hot beverages
It’s been my main source of vitamin B12 given that I’m vegetarian and also don’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 couldn’t stop eating them.
Everyone liked them, even marmite haters.
These nuts weren’t around for long!
