Autumn Spiced Nuts
Today is the first day of autumn (fall) and these Autumn Spiced Nuts are perfect for this new season. Mixed nuts and pumpkin seeds are roasted with warm spices, honey and rosemary. The perfect comforting snack.
Isn’t fall just the best time of the year? Think sitting by the fire. It’s chilly outside and you’re in your cozy slippers sipping a hot toddy and snacking on these nuts. Maybe you’re watching a movie or just listening to music. Sounds good doesn’t it?
These spicy mixed nuts are a snack that I always have around at this time of the year. They’re also healthy which is not what we think of when we are bundled up and all we want is comfort food.
Perfect for holiday entertaining
If you’ve ever had unexpected guest stop by around the holidays, these nuts are an easy item to keep on hand for these situations. Everyone loves them served with a good cocktail, just sayin’.
Take them to work on on road trips
I’ve been sending them to work with my husband as a snack, but his co-workers seemed to have latched on to them so I’ve been making extra. They’re great road trip snacks as well.
I always say that spices are a delicious, easy and healthy way to add flavor to any food. I used a combination of garam masala, cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. All perfect fall and warming spices.
I also like to use Mexican spices along with lime for my Mexican Chile Lime Peanuts (< click text for recipe).
Spiced not Spicy
These roasted mixed nuts are spiced but are not spicy. If you want to add a little spice, add some cayenne pepper and taste as you add.
Now there is no reason to buy store-bought spiced nuts anymore, you can make your own and customize them by using the mix of nuts and spices that you prefer.
