  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Spread nuts evenly on the prepared baking sheet and roast in the oven for 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, heat remaining ingredients in a medium-sized saucepan (big enough to hold all of the nuts) over low heat and simmer until nuts are done toasting.
  • Add toasted nuts to saucepan and stir to coat.
  • Put the nuts back on the the prepared baking sheet and spread out in an even layer.
  • Roast in the oven for another 7 minutes.
  • Remove and allow to cool on baking sheet, stirring occasionally so the nuts don't clump together.
  • Once cool, place in a bowl to serve or an airtight container until you are ready to serve.


  • These will keep for about a week in an airtight container.
  • If you have the option, get raw nuts. Since you are roasting in the oven anyway, they will be less dried out if you start with raw ones.
  • The provided nutrition information does not include any added sodium from seasoning to taste, any optional ingredients, and it does not take brands into account. Feel free to calculate it yourself using this calculator or by adding the recipe to Yummly.
