Dangerously addictive!  Use any combination of nuts you like, but watch pecans carefully because they scorch quickly.

Makes two cups.

  • ½ cup raw peanuts
  • ½ cup raw pecan halves
  • ½ cup raw walnut halves
  • ½ cup raw almonds
  • 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh chives
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • ¾  teaspoon sea salt
  • ½  teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ½ teaspoon freshly cracked pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 ½ tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a medium bowl combine all spices and herbs and brown sugar and mix with a fork.  Stir in the melted butter.

Scatter nuts on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and roast for 10-12 minutes.

Pour hot nuts over spice mixture and toss with a spatula until nuts are evenly coated.  Return nuts to the parchment paper and allow to cool.
