Roasted figs, bananas and mixed nuts is a wonderful sight see on the kitchen counter. This roasted fruit and nut crunch takes 5 minutes to prepare and 10 minutes to bake. The rest of the time is spent stopping yourself from eating the entire tray!
More than happy to share this recipe after so many requests on my Instagram story that I appreciate so much, thank you ❤
This is a different way to use any leftover nuts and oats you may have although in my house its more a matter of use the nuts in a recipe before they all get munched up! It’s so easy to nibble on nuts especially if they are right in front of you. Most of the time you don’t even realize that you are finishing the nuts instead of using them in a recipe which can go a much longer way.
You also don’t need a whole lot of ingredients to start making this crunch. The best part is that you can half the quantities and also substitute the ingredients! So although raw cashews and almonds are your best choices they may not always be affordable or accessible so work with what you have. You have peanuts use peanuts, remove the skins and roast them.

Always try using fruit that is in season. This way you are getting the best value both in freshness and affordability. I always find that banana is one of the fruits that is available and affordable most of the year. In the case of vegetables carrots holds the same value. So yes the fresher and the more easy on the pocket the better.
The reason I say this is because when you are trying to eat healthy and or follow healthy recipes its very easy to get caught up in the “ingredient type”. Although that’s okay its also important to work within your budget and remember that you don’t need expensive ingredients to make good nourishing and healthy meals.

I love making these crunchy bits to store in a jar for those days when you want a dessert or something sweet but don’t need the fuss in having to make an entire recipe from scratch. Drop some of this crunch into a bowl with a dollop of yogurt, sprinkle a few seeds and oats with a drizzle of honey for a dessert treat!
