Tamari Roasted Nuts and Seeds

Tamari roasted nuts and seeds

These Tamari roasted nuts and seeds are a fantastic kids’ lunchbox snack! They are also great tossed through fresh salads or stir-fry’s and make a perfect addition to grazing platters at your next summer get-together.
We always recommend soaking your nuts and seeds, as this makes their nutrients more available for the body to absorb, not to mention it makes them crunchy and delicious! As a general rule, soak nuts for 8 hours or overnight, and 4 hours for seeds.

Prep: 10 minutes
Cook time: 30-40 minutes
Makes: 2 cups


  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 4 TB tamari
  • 1 TB honey
  • 1 tsp. coconut oil


  1. Pre-soak the almonds, in water for 8 hours or overnight and pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds for only 4 hours.
  2. Once soaked for appropriate time rinse and drain nuts and seeds.
  3. Pre-heat oven to 140°C and prepare a lined baking tray
  4. Spread pre-soaked almonds onto try and bake for 20-25 minutes
  5. Meanwhile in a small saucepan combine tamari, honey and coconut oil.
  6. After 20-25 minutes remove tray from oven, add sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds and coat in tamari mixture. Return the tray back to the oven for a further 10-15 minutes. Keep an eye on the colour of the nuts, they should just be golden brown. Be careful not to burn them. This can happen quite quickly.
  7. Once done, remove form oven and let cool. Store in a glass jar.
