‘Tis the season…for so much, right? The holidays for my family feel very low key this year, and I have to admit, I kind of like it. Between a new baby and transitioning into a new house, there just isn’t much extra time (or let’s be honest, energy) for stuff that really isn’t all that important as it has been in the past. For example, our tree, our stockings, and a few decorations are up, but I am wondering what’s in the 3 other large plastic bins sitting in the garage marked Christmas and if I really need all that “stuff”. I’m not missing anything so I guess I don’t need it right? Maybe next year it’ll come back out…but for now, I’m truly enjoying Simple. I’m also a little (a lot) behind on Christmas shopping (hello Amazon Prime), Christmas cards and pretty much everything else relating to the holiday..although I’m proud that I did get manage to get about 1/3 of my Christmas lights out in the yard. 😉

Like I said, the theme for this year’s holiday for me is truly…Simple. And it’s ok.

Speaking of simple, this spiced holiday nut recipe is pretty simple – just the way I like it! Although I mentioned our holidays are more low key this year, we are still spending time with family and friends and of course when people get together there is usually food involved. Spiced nuts are always a welcomed treat at any get together and they can’t be easier to make – take it from a slightly sleep deprived mom who is not spending a lot of time in the kitchen lately. These nuts take less than 20 minutes to put together and that includes oven time. You can package them up in a pretty holiday tin to take with you to a holiday party, or set them out for guests that are stopping by. Of course you can just treat your kids to some as an after school snack, I’m sure they won’t mind. 🙂

I was inspired by the flavors of the season when I made these nuts using Fisher’s Nuts. I used a blend of Walnut and Pecan Halves but any combination of nuts will work. These bake up in just 10 – 12 minutes, you know they are done when you start to smell something delicious in the air!

Happy Snacking!

    I love love LOVE nuts and think they magically make any dish even better. So a dish that’s all about the nuts like the one? I am sold! Love that it is simple too. I hate how stressful the holidays can be and this is a great reminder to focus on what matters.

    Great flavor for these nuts and I love that you used coconut oil! Happy Holidays Aggie 🙂

    • Aggies Kitchen posted December 13, 2013 at 9:33 am

      I love using coconut oil in so much lately! I got a HUGE container from Costco so there’s definitely a reason to try it on everything 🙂 Happy holidays to you too!

    I love that these aren’t coated in 40 cups of sugar and oil. I could eat these all night!!

    • Aggies Kitchen posted December 13, 2013 at 9:32 am

      Seriously — on both!

  6. Karen Petersen posted December 12, 2013 at 8:18 pm

    These look so yummy! I will definitely have to try over the Christmas bread!

      Thanks Sommer – they are definitely addictive!

    Such a great way to dress up nuts for the holidays.

  9. Cookin Canuck posted December 13, 2013 at 10:45 am

    Okay, I don’t have the excuse of a new baby or a new house, but somehow I am still behind on my Christmas preparations. This time of year definitely calls for fast, easy recipes and these nuts sound perfect for that!

    I love when holidays become “simple” – it takes the pressure off and you can just enjoy it so much more!

    Love these spiced nuts! Would be perfect packaged up as part of a holiday treat basket!

    Great recipe, Aggie! I love the sound of these.

  12. Kim Beaulieu posted December 13, 2013 at 4:38 pm

    I absolutely love spiced nuts so the idea of gingerbread spiced nuts is super appealing. Perfect for the holidays.

    I’m skipping holiday cards this year, but I am not going without a bowl of these nuts!

  14. Pamela @ Brooklyn Farm Girl posted December 15, 2013 at 12:06 am

    I’m a big spiced snack fan so this would be delicious!

  15. TidyMom posted December 15, 2013 at 2:17 pm

    oh these sound amazing Aggie!! I wish I had a bowl infront of me right now!!

      Thanks so much Cheryl – happy new year friend!

    these look beautiful and delicious – and my husband would eat the whole batch on his own!

  17. katie posted December 17, 2013 at 2:09 pm

    I feel ya–I’m right their with you. My current theme this season is “simple”. I’ve picked through a few of the items I wanted to use to decorate and the rest is just sitting in the garage! These nuts sound wonderful. I’m all for simple and tasty recipes these days!

  18. Sandy @ Reluctant Entertainer posted December 19, 2013 at 8:10 am

    I love spiced nuts. They’re so easy to make and make great gifts, too! Love you, girl!

    Wow! I would definitely enjoy making this recipe. I go gaga over nuts and walnuts do not only taste great but an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids. Thanks for posting!

  21. Sweet posted October 4, 2014 at 7:39 am

    Very unusual

  22. Sandy posted November 23, 2015 at 9:03 am

    I can’t wait to make these this week! How long do they keep? Do they need to be refrigerated? I’m thinking these would be good to make ahead, but I don’t want to make them too far ahead if they won’t keep. Thank you for this wonderful recipe!!!

    • Aggies Kitchen posted November 23, 2015 at 9:29 am

      I have always just stored them in tupperware on the counter. Honestly, I’ve made them quite a few times and they’ve never lasted more than a couple of days (because we ate them all!), but I would think they should be fine for at least 3-5 days if stored in an air tight container. Enjoy them and the holiday and thanks!
