Update spiced nuts with the addicting combination of sweet maple syrup, warm cinnamon and nutmeg, and spicy cayenne in this gluten-free snack recipe.


  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

  • 1 teaspoon Frontier Co-op Organic Korintje Cinnamon

  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon Frontier Co-op Organic Cayenne

  • 1/8 teaspoon Frontier Co-op Organic Nutmeg

  • 1/4 teaspoon Frontier Co-op Sea Salt

  • 1 cup raw pecans

  • 1 cup raw almonds

  • 1 cup raw cashews

  • 1 cup raw hazelnuts

  • 2 teaspoons Frontier Co-op Organic, Fair Trade Cane Sugar


    1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees and cover a baking tray with parchment paper.

    2. In a small pot, heat maple syrup, spices and sea salt until syrup is warm.

    3. In a bowl, combine nuts and pour warm syrup over nuts. Stir until well coated.

    4. Spread nuts on baking tray in a single layer and bake for 12 minutes. Nuts should be browning slightly. Remove and let cool on tray for 10 minutes.

    5. While still slightly warm, toss nuts with sugar. Store in an airtight container for two to three days.

    Recipe Tip:

    1/4 teaspoon cayenne adds just a bit of kick to the spiced nuts. For nuts that are slightly spicier, use 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon.
