Spiced Nuts (Great Last-Minute Gift!)

Happy Monday! Today I'm linking up with  Confessions of a Mother Runner and Tina Muir for Meatless Monday.  

I typically bake cookies and give them as holiday gifts, but I feel a little guilty doing so. There are so many sweets around the holidays, and I hate to contribute to the sugar overload. So this year I made less cookies and also make a healthier edible gift, Spiced Nuts. I packaged them in holiday-themed treat bags and gave them along with a bottle of wine.

These are really easy to make, and the savory, spicy taste is really good. If you need a last-minute gift idea, try these!

Spiced Nuts

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with vegetable oil.
  3. Put all the nuts in a bowl and spray with vegetable oil. Stir them around and spray more until the nuts are evenly coated with oil.
  4. Add the spices and mix well until the nuts are evenly coated with spices.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes.
  6. Immediately remove from the baking sheet and put into a cold bowl so they cool. If you leave them on the pan, they will continue to bake and will burn. 
  7. Store in an airtight container until ready to eat.
