I was first introduced to these terrific snacking spiced nuts when my work colleague, Elizabeth. She brought them to share at an office get together.

I loved them immediately and from chatting with her discovered it was a very adaptable recipe, that can use other nuts. A combination of nuts would work too, and whatever spice combinations you think would work.

Hazelnuts, almonds, macadamia nuts, walnuts and pecans for Ultimate Nut Fruitcake

Roasted hazelnuts, almonds, macadamia nuts, walnuts and pecans. Any or all of these could be used in this recipe.

With the holiday season right around the corner, here’s the perfect pre-dinner nibble for Thanksgiving.  Or to serve with drinks any time. These are fantastic when served warm from the oven.

They are a little sweet, a little salty, a little smokey from the spices chosen and with just a touch of spicy heat. You may find yourself making these all year round.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups whole raw almonds
  • 1 tbsp melted butter
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar

  2. Allow to cool for a few minutes while you prepare the coating.
  3. In a medium sized bowl, mix all ingredients except the nuts together well.
  4. Toss the warm nuts in the mixture until evenly coated, then roast on a parchment lined baking sheet for 12-18 minutes depending on the size of the nuts to get them perfectly toasted.
  5. Watch them carefully and toss them around several time during the baking times to make sure they are staying separate and not clumping together.
  6. Allow them to cool on the pan for at least 10 minutes before serving.

They are good but a couple things make me wonder what I did wrong. Did anyone experience the nuts coating settling to a big puddle of goo and the nuts stuck together? This was after I took them out for cooling. I just broke them apart by hands full. They didn’t melt back together but...

Try turning them more in the oven, & even as they cool.

Made an altered version. Used walnut, cashews and pepitas and omitted brown sugar by using half coconut palm, half stevia in its place. Subbed avocado oil for maple syrup and cut half of the cayenne as my husband is sensitive to the heat. Worked out perfect! So good!

By raw, do you mean blanched? Or can I leave skins on?
