Pumpkin Spice Roasted Nuts

This roasted nut recipe serves double duty as a delicious treat and a home air freshener. The high smoke point of avocado oil helps to safely roast the almonds and pecans without fear of degrading nutrients, creating toxins, and trans fats. Enjoy as a simple snack, salad topping, or over ice cream!
