The Easiest Maple Spiced Nuts

Sweet, spicy, and so damn simple. These nuts will be a go to for your Holiday season.

There is something so wonderful about maple-glazed nuts in the winter. We personally love to make ours with a little kick of cayenne and cinnamon, but you can totally adjust the quantities to suit your palette. These are great to throw into your favorite Fall or Winter salad to add some crunch and sweetness. Spiced nuts are also a fan favorite on charcuterie boards. Or if you are like us, you can just snack on them.
Prep Time: 
Cook Time: 15 min
The Goods: 
2 cups raw nuts (we love a mix of cashews, almonds, walnuts, pecans) 
1/3 cup good Maple Syrup
1/4 tsp cayenne
1/4 tsp cinnamon
pink salt
How To: 
  1. Preheat oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Add nuts to baking sheet and drizzle with maple syrup then sprinkle with cayenne, cinnamon, and salt. Toss with spatula to coat evenly and make sure nuts are on one layer.
  3. Bake in center rack of oven for 15 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes to make sure nuts don't burn.
  4. Remove from the oven and make sure nuts are dispersed evenly. Allow to cool. Break nuts apart and store in an air-tight container for up to 2 weeks (but it's never lasted that long for us.).
