2 ½cupsbulk raw nuts (such as walnuts, pecans, almonds and cashews)
1Tbsp. light brown sugar, packed
½tsp. black pepper
⅛ to ¼tsp. cayenne pepper, to taste
2Tbsp. olive oil
1Tbsp. fresh rosemary, minced
½Tbsp. fresh thyme, minced
Preheat oven to 300ºF.
Add the mixed nuts, brown sugar, cumin, salt, pepper and cayenne to a large bowl and toss to combine. Set aside.
Add the olive oil to a small saucepan set over medium-low heat. When warm, add in the rosemary and thyme and cook for about 1 minute, stirring frequently, until fragrant. Pour the mixture into the bowl of nuts and mix until everything is evenly coated. Spread the mixture out on a large rimmed baking sheet.
Bake for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the nuts are toasted and fragrant.
Remove from oven and let cool completely (the coating will dry as it cools). Store nuts in an airtight container for up to four days.
