Mixed Seasonal Nuts

These sweet and savory mixed nuts are sure to be a hit at your next holiday party. They’re also perfect for when you need a thoughtful last-minute hostess gift as you make your rounds this holiday season.


Yield: 4 cups
Total Prep time: 25 minutes




4 cups unsalted mixed nuts (cashews, walnuts, almonds, pecans, or pistachios)

1 T. sea salt

2 t. ground black pepper

1 t. garlic powder

2 t. cinnamon

½ t. cayenne pepper
2 T. brown sugar, tightly packed

2 T. real maple syrup

2 T. unsalted butter, melted



Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.


In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and toss until nuts are completely coated and all seasonings are evenly distributed.


Spread nuts onto lined baking sheet into a single layer. Bake for 8 – 10 minutes before stirring nuts to ensure they are evenly toasting. Continue baking for another 8 – 10 minutes or until nuts are a nice golden brown. Watch closely in final minutes, however, to ensure the nuts do not overcook.


Remove from oven and sprinkle with additional sea salt or other seasonings, if desired. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container once cooled. Put them in pretty mason jars and hand them out as holiday presents!
