Vegan Roasted Spiced Mixed Nuts (Oven & Air Fryer)


 
After experimenting the awesome Roasted Salted Mixed Nuts with my Philip Airfryer, I am not going to stop right there, I decided to try out these spiced nuts and it turned out great and crunchy to the max! If you like more kick, you can increase the amount of chilli/cayenne powder, likewise if it is for the little kids, you can skip the chilli. Basically there are no rules!
 
 
Nowadays, these spiced nuts happened to be the best snack for the men in my home to go along their beer and wine, they just couldn't stop munching! Find out here on where to buy good and cheap raw nuts in Singapore.
