Spiced honey roast nuts

Spiced Honey Roasted Nuts


  • 450 g (1lb) mixed nuts (I used almonds, cashews, pecans, hazelnuts and brazils)
  • 75 g (3 Tbsp) runny honey (or maple syrup)
  • 15 g (1 Tbsp) butter (or coconut oil)
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutemg
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 50 g (1/4 cup) demarera sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C/325°F/gas mark 3 and line a roasting tray with baking parchment.

  2. Place the honey and butter in a pan and heat gently until the butter has melted. Stir in the cinnamon, cayenne pepper, nutmeg and ginger then add the nuts and stir until they are well coated.
  3. Spread the nuts out on the prepared roasting tray and roast for about 20 minutes, giving them a good stir every five. The nuts should be browned but not burnt.
  4. Leave to cool for 2 minutes while you mix together the salt and demarera sugar in a large bowl. Add the nuts (they should still be hot at this point) and stir until they are well coated. Taste and add more salt and/or sugar as needed.

  5. Return the nuts to the roasting tray, spread out in a single layer and leave to cool completely before decanting into jars.
