Crafting Christmas: Spiced Holiday Nuts

For Christmas I always like to make some foody gifts for friends and family. When this little recipe popped up in my bloglovin’ feed I knew it would be a perfect addition to my festive food repetoire. The recipe is adapted from Clean Food Dirty City.


Spiced Holiday Nuts

  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp curry powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cups nuts and seeds (I used a mix of Brasil nuts, almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds)
  • sea salt to taste

Preheat oven to 160C. Mix cumin, chilli powder, curry powder, ground ginger and ground cinnamon in a bowl and set aside. Heat the oil in a non-stick pan over a low heat. Add spice mixture and stir well for about 3-4 minutes, be careful not to burn. Place nuts and seeds in a bowl, add spice mixture and toss well. Spread the nuts in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, turning the nuts twice. Remove from oven and toss in a bit of salt. Let them cool and store in an airtight container.
