Paleo Mixed Nuts (3 Ways)

Roasted mixed nuts with herbs and spices

When I go to the store, hankering for a delicious and healthy snack, mixed roasted nuts always seem like a good call. That is, until I look at the exorbitant price tag and I settle for whatever plain nut is available (preferably on sale). I discovered something though; you can get that wonderful mixed nut experience without the hefty price tag. All it takes is about 20 minutes of your time. The bonus is you get to flex those creative culinary muscles, should you choose to get fancy with it.

The idea turned into inspiration, then research, then full-blown confidence that I could pull this off. It’s seriously one of the easiest things you could do in the kitchen. Once I realized the simplicity of making roasted mixed nuts, I thought, “Why have I not been doing this all along?”. After the regret faded, floods of recipes entered my brain. Today I’m sharing three of them with you: a sweet one, a savory one, and a curried one.

Pro tips

  • Roasted mixed nuts make great gifts! Buy some fancy bags and create fun labels. Your friends and family will love it.
  • Everyone’s oven seems to be different. Play around with the oven temperatures and time.
  • Substitute any of my suggested nuts for other nuts and seeds.
  • Add dried fruit, or whatever ingredient your heart desires. Dried fruit should be added after you roast the nuts.
  • Play around with the spice amounts, too. One teaspoon may not be a strong enough flavor for you. To each their own!
