Addictive Nuts - Rosemary, Olive Oil & Maple Syrup

If your kids aren't keen on eating nuts - then try this recipe.  Even great to serve as snack food for adults.  These are highly addictive, as suggested by Petite Kitchen (thanks for the recipe).


  • 1/8 cup of extra virgin olive oil

  • 2 cups mixed nuts (almond, walnut, cashews, brazil - anything really.  You could add in pumpkin and sunflower seeds too)

  • 1 handful of rosemary leaves

  • 2 tablespoons of maple syrup or honey

  • 1 teaspoon Himalayan or sea-salt


  1. Place a sheet of baking paper on a large oven tray or chopping board and set aside.

  2. Warm the olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat.

  3. Once it is warmed/hot add the nuts and rosemary and stir until they are well coated.

  4. Keep stirring.  After about 2 minutes add the maple syrup/honey and continue to stir for a minute or so.

  5. Sprinkle the salt over the nuts, stir and then remove from the heat once the nuts have browned a little.

  6. Transfer the nuts to the baking paper, spreading them out in a single layer to allow the syrup to harden.

  7. Leave to cool completely then store in an airtight container or jar.

  8. Nuts will keep in a cool dark place for 3-4 weeks.
