Rosemary Spiced Mixed Nuts

Rosemary Spiced Mixed Nuts

Servings 6 servings
Author Brandon Matzek


  • 1 pound unsalted mixed nuts (I used cashews, walnuts and almonds here)
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup (not imitation)
  • 2 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary, divided
  • 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 teaspoons flaky sea salt or kosher salt, plus more to taste


  1. Preheat an oven to 350°F. In a large bowl, toss mixed nuts with melted butter and maple syrup. Add 2 tablespoons chopped rosemary, dark brown sugar, cayenne pepper and 2 teaspoons flaky sea salt, mixing until the nuts are well coated with the flavorings. Spread nuts out onto a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake until glazed and golden (about 18 - 20 minutes), stirring twice during the cooking process.*
  2. As soon as the nuts come out of the oven, season with an additional 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary, and flaky sea salt to taste (I added an additional 3/4 teaspoon). Serve warm immediately or store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.

Recipe Notes

* If your oven runs hot, be sure to check the nuts a bit early. Nuts can go from wonderfully golden to bitter and acrid if overcooked.
