Homemade Organic Spiced Nuts (w/recipe)

One of my besties makes spiced nuts for a snack for her family regularly and I tried some last week.  So while I was cleaning out the Brownifer Pantry and re-organizing, I realized we have a TON of raw, organic nuts and seeds.  I decided to put them to good use and make a batch of my own spiced nuts!

So I did.  And they're amazing!  Healthy, organic and no chemicals or additives that will give me headaches!!!!!  SCORE!

These would be great for parties or divided in smaller containers/baggies for lunch snacks on-the-go!

Try it out:


  • 2 1/2 Cups Nuts/Seeds of your choice (if using salted nuts, omit salt from spices)
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon or so black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (more if you want spicier)
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt (we used fleur de sel)
  • Heat the oven to 325 degrees
  • Mix the spices in a small bowl and set aside
  • In a separate, larger bowl, mix the olive oil and maple syrup
  • Spread the nuts on a large baking sheet and roast for about 12 minutes, watch them carefully and make sure they don't burn
  • Pour the nuts into the larger bowl with the oil and syrup, stir to coat
  • Sprinkle the spices over the nuts and stir again to mix in the spices
  • Spread nuts back out onto the cookie sheet
  • Bake for another 3 minutes  - taste to see if you want to add more salt before final bake
  • Remove nuts from oven, stir/flip on the cookie sheet and back for another 3 minutes
  • Let nuts cool on the cookie sheet until you can handle them and transfer to a storage container

We store our nuts in the pantry - they should be good for a week or so but I doubt they'll even last that long!
