Spicy Roasted Almonds and Walnuts


  • 2 cups unsalted whole almonds
  • 2 cups shelled walnut halves
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/8 tsp (or more if you are daring) cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp salt


  1. Put nuts in a large bowl and toss with olive oil. 
  2. Mix all the spices together in a separate bowl and then toss with the nuts to coat. 
  3. Spread the mixture in a single layer on a cookie sheet and bake at 300° for 30-40 min stirring occasionally.
  4. Let them cool and save them in an airtight container. You can eat them warm, but I prefer them at room temp when they have a chance to regain their crunch.
