I posted a spiced nut recipe from Giada De Laurentis last summer. It’s really good! Click HERE to compare it to this recipe. They are both excellent – but I think today’s recipe is slightly more sweet and the other more savory.
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon canola or vegetable oil
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon ground cardamom (heaping)
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
Dash of freshly ground black pepper
½ cup almonds
½ cup hazelnuts
½ cup cashews
Preheat oven to 350.
Combine first 8 ingredients in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 30 seconds. Stir until blended. Add nuts; toss to coat.
Spread nuts evenly on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper – or if you have a silpat, you can use that.
Bake at 350 for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
Let cool completely (that’s the hardest part!) before serving.
