Holiday Helpers! Bar Nuts

Bar Nuts! From Vegan Food Gifts (Fairwinds Press)
Bar Nuts
These nuts are pretty addictive. I love them during the holiday season. I try to keep a bowl out on the table whenever I have folks over. If you are a DIY gifter, I recommend making a few batches of these and packing them up in reusable jars with cute ties and tags.

1/2 cup (120 ml) olive oil
1/4 cup (60 ml) maple syrup*
1 tablespoon (2 g) dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon sage
1/2 teaspoon rosemary
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 cup (112 g) cashews
1 cup (140 g) almonds
1 cup (133 g) brazil nuts
1 cup (99 g) pecans
1 cup (120 g) walnuts
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

*No maple syrup on hand? Go ahead and sub with agave, or corn syrup!

Preheat oven to 350°F.
Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment or aluminum foil.
In a small bowl, mix together oil, maple syrup, herbs, and spices.
In a mixing bowl, add all of the nuts.
Toss nuts with herb mixture to coat completely.
Arrange in a single layer on the baking sheet.
Rinse and dry mixing bowl.
Bake for 30 minutes, turning every 7 or 8 minutes.
Remove from oven, return to mixing bowl.
Add salt and pepper and toss to coat and cool.
Package in an airtight container or sealed bag.
These last about 2 weeks in an airtight container.

Yield: 5 cups
