Chipotle Roasted Nuts


  • 2 lbs. deluxe whole mixed nuts (cashews, almonds, pecans, hazelnuts, etc.), salted
  • vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup pure maple sugar
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons ground chipotle pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and coat a sheet pan generously with vegetable oil (the mix is very sticky so coating the pan well helps during cleanup).  Combine 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, maple syrup, brown sugar, orange juice, and chipotle pepper.  Place the nuts on the sheet pan and toss with the spice mixture to coat evenly.
  • Spread the nuts in one layer on the sheet pan and roast for 25 minutes, stirring twice, until the nuts are glazed and lightly browned.  Remove from the oven, toss well, and stir occasionally as they cool to prevent sticking.  Serve warm or cool completely and store in an airtight container.  Serves 8 to 10.
