Baked v.s. Non-baked items
I love using a variety of nuts and seeds to add color, flavor, and texture. So how to tell what types are good for lightly toasting in the oven and which not ?
An easy way to tell is by the moisture content of the nuts, seeds, or even fruits of your choice.
For example, I use goji berries in the recipe below. Berries contain more water so naturally you’ll want to keep them dry without turning soft and mushy.
In this case, bake the goji berries with the nuts together in the oven to reduce the moisture content.
On the contrary, I love adding a bit of cocoa nibs (or unsweetened chocolate) to my mixed nuts. But since chocolate melts under heat and since this is not a chocolate flavor coated mixed nuts, I sprinkle the chocolate over the nuts after they are baked in the oven.
So think of your own choice of ingredients and if you are still not quite sure what to do, test with a small batch before making larger quantities.
