Roasted Maple Spruce Nuts

Roasted Maple Spruce Nuts

Serving Size:

Makes 6 cups of roasted nuts


6 cups of your favorite mixed nuts

½ cup Baird Farm spruce tip infused maple syrup

2 tablespoons orange juice

1-2 teaspoons kosher salt

either 1 teaspoon chipotle powder or 2 teaspoons cinnamon


In a bowl, stir together the nuts with the maple syrup, orange juice, and 1 teaspoon of salt. For spicy sweet roasted nuts, use the chipotle powder. For sweet roasted nuts, use cinnamon. Add your spice of choice and stir to combine.

Set your oven racks to the middle or upper part of your oven. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and spread the coated nuts out onto the baking sheets, trying not to crowd either. Bake for 8 minutes, then stir the nuts. Bake for another 8 minutes and stir once more. Bake for another 5 minutes. At this point, the nuts should be a deep golden brown. You can return them to the oven for another couple of minutes, if needed, but keep a close eye on them to prevent burning. 

Cool the nuts in the pan before tasting. Add up to an additional teaspoon of salt, as you prefer. If not eaten right away, store the nuts in an airtight container for up to two weeks.
