A little something for everyone:  Spiced Nuts.


Units Scale

Spiced Nuts:


  • Preheat oven to 350F (a toaster oven works here too)
  • In a small bowl, toss the nuts/seeds with the maple syrup, enough to coat well, and mix in the salt and spices.
  • Spread out on a parchment-lined sheet pan and bake 13-15 minutes, stirring halfway through.  You want to get them toasted and generously golden- so the maple syrup hardens after cooling.
  • Remove from heat, and immediately “fluff” with a fork. Let them cool completely.
  • Once cooled they should be brittle enough to break apart. If they are soft, tacky or sticky- they needed longer in the oven- feel free to put them back in the oven and bake a little longer.


These make a great easy snack or lovely hostess gift!
