Sweet and savory, this snack makes for a crunchy change of pace. 

1 cup soy nuts 
2/3 cup raisins 
1 tbs. curry powder 
1 tsp. ground cinnamon 
1/3 cup milled flaxseed 
½ cup barley malt 

1. Preheat oven to 350’F. 
2. Place the soy nuts, raisins, curry powder, and cinnamon in a medium-sized mixing bowl. 
3. If you are using whole flaxseeds, grind them in an electric coffee grinder. Otherwise, add the pre-ground flaxseeds to the soy-nut-raisin mixture. 
4. Pour the barley malt into a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat until it thins to a syrup. Add to the soy nuts and raisins. Stir with a wooden spoon until all of the ingredients are combined and coated with malt. 
5. Spread over a cookie sheet. Bake for 4 minutes, until the nuts are toasted. Remove from the oven. Using a spatula, loosen from the cookie sheet while still warm. Cool.
