A few weeks ago, I accidentally ordered raw nuts instead of roasted nuts. Alex and I both prefer roasted nuts and I was afraid the jar of raw mixed nuts would sit in the pantry untouched. So I decided to try roasting them myself. I was actually surprised at how easy it was and I had fun playing with different herbs and spices. This was the winning combo at my house and I think you’ll enjoy it, too!

Got some leftover nuts? Use them as a salad topping, create your own trail mix breakfast cookies, or try a batch of this nut brittle!

roasted nuts ingredients


  • Mixed nuts– I used a combination of almonds, cashews, walnuts, and macadamia nuts. Be sure the nuts are raw and unsalted.
  • Maple syrup– I used this for a little sweetness. You can substitute with honey if you prefer.
  • Olive oil– A little oil helps bring out the flavor without the nuts getting too dry.
  • Rosemary– Fresh rosemary is lovely in this recipe but you can substitute with dried rosemary, if needed. You’ll need 1 teaspoon of dried rosemary.
  • Smoked paprika– I love the subtle smoky flavor of smoked paprika, but you can substitute with regular paprika if you like.
  • Vanilla extract– This helps enhance the sweet flavor that plays nicely with the paprika.
  • Salt– I prefer the flavor and texture of flaky salt but table salt is fine too. They measure very different though, so if using table salt, use 1/4 teaspoon or to taste.
