Seasoned Nuts


Nuts and more nuts – I’m considered a “Nut-aholic” – I’m drawn to nuts like a squirrel.


With an entire pantry shelf dedicated to all types of nuts, creating different recipes is a nutty habit I have. My grandson enjoys joining me on my quest of mixing nuts with various ingredients.


This is a favorite recipe for my Holiday table. Quick and simple and just the right flavors to offset all those sweets you’ve been nibbling on.


Mix up a batch ahead of time and always be prepared with a quick hostess gift for that unexpected invite.


Seasoned Nuts

Use a mixture of your favorite nuts to make this a holiday favorite. 

Make this ahead of the holidays and have ready for your entertaining. 

  • 4 cups Mixed Nuts – Unsalted
  • 1 Tbsp Sea Salt
  • 2 tsp Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 2 Tbsp Brown Sugar – Tightly Packed
  • 2 Tbsp Unsalted Butter – melted
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. 

  2. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and toss until nuts are completely coated and all seasonings are evenly distributed.
  3. 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. 
  4. Remove from oven and sprinkle with additional sea salt or other seasonings, if desired. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container once cooled.
