Sweet & Spicy Nuts & Seeds

Sweet & Spicy Nuts

It's crunch time for Christmas ideas! Check out this recipe from our London ON Chiropractor Janna House for a great last-minute Christmas idea.

Yield: 6 cups


  • 1 cup of each of the following, or any nuts & seeds of your choice: pecans, walnuts, cashews, almonds, sunflower seeds & pumpkin seeds.
  • 3 tablespoons butter (or coconut oil), melted
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt


  1. Grease a crock pot with coconut oil.
  2. Dump your nuts and seeds into the prepared crock pot.
  3. In a small bowl, melt butter or coconut oil, then add the maple syrup and spices.
  4. Pour the sweet and spicy mixture over the nuts. Stir well with a big spoon or spatula to ensure that the nuts are well mixed and consistently coated in the sweet and spicy mix.
  5. Cover and cook on high for 30-60 minutes (depending on how hot your crock pot gets), stirring occasionally. Then lower the heat to “low” and cook for another hour or hour and a half.  Whenever you take the lid off to stir the pot, be sure to wipe any condensation from the lid, as you want the nuts/seeds to become dry.
  6. You may even want to put the lid on slightly ajar, so they can dry out.
  7. Once the nuts/seeds seem dry, pour them onto a parchment lined cookie sheet to cook and to finish drying.
  8. If the nuts/seeds still seem a little sticky or wet, place them in the oven at 200° for another hour, stirring occasionally.
  9. Remove from oven, and allow the nuts/seeds to cool completely.
  10. Store in an air tight container, like as Mason jar. You can decorate it with a ribbon and label or tag and give as a home made gift.
