Maple roasted nuts
December 8, 2022 by admin

I think I might want to submit this as the easiest and tastiest homemade Christmas-or-anytime gift, ever! Not only are these roasted nuts addictively delicious, but they’re SO easy and quick to make. Pick up some cute little jars and ribbons and pair with a beautiful bottle of Jack Daniel’s Gentleman Jack. These are also gluten-free, vegan and dairy-free!


  • 3 cups nuts of choice: raw macadamias, pecans, hazelnuts, walnuts, almonds
  • 5 tbsp organic golden cane sugar (or sugar of choice)
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp crushed chili flakes
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 2-4 tsp Jack Daniel’s Gentleman Jack


Preheat oven to 350F. Place all ingredients in a large bowl, toss well to coat. Spread nuts on a silicone lined baking sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes, tossing to coat at the halfway mark. Remove from oven and let cool for 2 minutes. Use a metal spoon to scrape through and break up the nuts before they set too hard. Sugar will harden more as it cools. Divide into pretty jars, add a festive ribbon and gift with Jack Daniel’s Gentleman Jack!
