holiday nuts {savory & sweet}

If you are looking for a delicious and healthy snack to either put out at your next party or give someone for the holidays, look no further. These holiday nuts are packed with flavor paired with the perfect mix-ins of your choice.


These holiday nuts are great because you can just have FUN! There is no limits to the combinations you can put together. My recommendation is to make the recipe your own and take all the credit. For reference, I will share with you the combinations I did. SAVORY: Garlic-Herb spices, almonds, cashews & sunflower seeds. SWEET: Cinnamon-Sugar, almonds, cashews, shredded coconut & dried cranberries


  • 4 cups raw unsalted nuts, such as: macadamias, peanuts, almonds, cashews, pistachios, pecans, walnuts, hazelnuts, etc.
  • 1 1/2 cups of mix-ins, such as: chex cereal, popcorn, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, pretzels, corn nuts, etc.
  • 1 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1 large egg white
  • Spice blend of your choice (2 provided below)
  • 1 cup of any other mix-ins you desire, such as: raisins, dried cranberries, coconut flakes, banana chips, dried chiles, dried papaya, etc.

Ingredients for SAVORY spice blend {garlic-herb}:

  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper, 1 1/2 tsp. kosher salt, 1 1/2 tsp. granulated garlic, 1 Tbsp. rosemary, 1 Tbsp. sage, and 1 Tbsp. thyme


Ingredients for SWEET spice blend {cinnamon-sugar}:

  • 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg, 1/2 tsp. ground ginger, 1 1/2 tsp. kosher salt, 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, 6 Tbsp. granulated sugar



  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Brush a rimmed baking sheet with olive oil.
  2. Prepare your spice blend in a small bowl. (Use above recipe or make your own!)
  3. In a large bowl, whisk the egg white until frothy. Add in the nuts, the mix-ins, and prepared spice blend. Toss together until everything is well coated.
  4. Spread the nut mixture on to prepared baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes. Open oven and stir once or twice throughout the baking process.
  5. Let the nut mixture cool on the baking sheet and then transfer to an air-tight container until ready to serve. ENJOY!!!
