Sweet and Spicy Nuts

Posted in : Appetizers, Recipe on by : Nicole

I had a bag of mixed nuts from costco, that were just… enh. The flavors together were just weird.

 

I was trying to eat healthier but this was just a no go for me. So i looked up this recipe, but had been doing some other recipes that use Brown Rice Syrup to help keep one’s glycemic index from spiking. So i decided to do some experimentation. And definitely a win and a great way to use up nuts that might taste a little weird, be a little old, or just plain old nuts! 

Pro tip – don’t use the bad that has dried cranberries and cherries – ick… I spent nearly 30 minutes after it was done, removing these little bad taste bombs!

Equipment Needed:

  • Bowl to mix
  • Jelly roll pan 10X15 
  • Silpat or sheet of foil to cover the jelly roll pan

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Toss almonds, pecans, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, syrup, oil, rosemary, red pepper flakes, paprika, and salt in a medium bowl to evenly coat nuts. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet or a large cast-iron pan and roast, tossing occasionally, until nuts are toasted and maple syrup caramelizes, 20–25 minutes.
  2. Transfer to a sheet of parchment and spread out in an even layer, breaking up to prevent clusters from forming. Let cool.
Notes
  1. For the nuts need to have about 3 and 1/4 cups of nut items.
