Sweet & Salty Rosemary Roasted Mixed Nuts

Hello. I would like you to meet some very delicious, highly-addictive roasted mixed nuts! This rosemary roasted mixed nuts recipe is the perfect combination of savory, mildly sweet and salty. It is easy to make, and can be used with many types of nuts. If you’d like, you could spice things up with the addition of chili powder as well.

We make a batch of these rosemary roasted mixed nuts to graze on every holiday season… yet they really could and should be celebrated any time of year. Looking for more holiday party appetizer ideas, or “just-because” tasty snacks? Check out these two-bite garlic and herb roasted smashed potatoes with optional cheese!


INGREDIENTS

  • 1.5 pounds total of raw, unsalted nuts of choice. In this example we are using raw pecans, walnuts and almonds, though we have also made this recipe using cashews too!
  • 2 tbsp “cooking fat” of choice, such as coconut oil, butter, vegan butter, or olive oil. Coconut oil is our top choice for this recipe!
  • 2 tsp coarse sea salt
  • 3 tbsp real maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp finely-chopped fresh rosemary. If attempting to use dry rosemary, use only 1 tbsp and toss with nuts after roasting is complete.
  • Optional: a small pinch of chili powder or chipotle powder


There are three white ceramic bowls of similar size, one if full of raw almonds, one of raw walnuts, and one of raw pecans. There is a smaller white ramekin the is partially full of maple syrup and there are two different tablespoon measurements, one of brown sugar, and one of course sea salt. They all sit atop a barn wood surface with fresh sprigs of rosemary scattered about the image.


INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

  2. Combine the mixed nuts in a large mixing bowl.

  3. In a smaller bowl, melt your oil or butter of choice. Then stir in the maple syrup and minced fresh rosemary. Pour this mixture over the nuts, stirring as you go to evenly coat them.

  4. Next, sprinkle the brown sugar and salt over the bowl of glazed nuts. Again, stir and toss to evenly coat them as you go.

  5. Spread the coated mixed nuts out evenly on either a greased (e.g. olive oil) or parchment-paper lined baking sheet.

  6. Bake the nuts for approximately 20 minutes – until they become toasty and golden brown. Meanwhile, stop to stir and toss the nuts twice during baking to ensure even roasting. *Note that the nuts will not seem super-crunchy until they’ve cooled. Do not over-roast. Burnt nuts are no bueno!

  7. Once they’re finished baking, set the roasted mixed nuts out at room temperature and continue to toss and stir periodically to prevent them from sticking together (or to the pan) while cooling. During this time, taste-test the roasted nuts and add more salt if desired. 

  8. Serve warm or cool and enjoy!

  9. Store the finished rosemary roasted mixed nuts in an air-tight container once completely cooled.


Fresh almonds, walnuts, and pecans have been mixed with maple syrup, fresh chopped rosemary, and salt. They are scattered across a baking sheet, ready for the oven and soon to be sweet and salty rosemary roasted nuts.
Sweet and salty rosemary roasted mixed nuts are shown in a white ceramic bowl with handles. The nuts are slightly encrusted in the sweet and salty mixture that has caramelized from the roasting. There are some mixed nuts scattered around the bowl along with loose course sea salt and a few sprigs of rosemary that make up the background.

    These are so delicious and a big hit with the family. My five year old especially loved them! I used a mix of almonds, cashews, hazelnuts and pecans and because I didn’t have enough coconut oil on hand I used olive oil. Will make these again and again! Thank you, Deanna!

    This recipe was simple to make and so delicious! I used all pecans and the dried herb option. They turned out perfectly! I can not wait to share with my family at our upcoming Christmas Day celebration as part of our charcuterie board.

    This recipe was so easy to make and delicious! Perfectly crunchy and sweet, and made the house smell wonderful! I made them to take to my sister’s Christmas Eve get together and for gifts, but I’m finding it hard to not eat them all myself!

    these sweet and savory mixed nuts are literally perfect. sweet savory and salty. i used almonds, walnuts, pecans and pumpkin seeds, i also added a little cinnamon. next time i make these, i will use butter rather than coconut oil because i am so curious as to how it changes the flavor of the nuts. perfect for gift giving!!!
