Maple Candied Mix Nuts (Gluten Free, Dairy Free)

Maple Candied Mix Nuts are the perfect snack food. Mixed nuts have always been on list of my go to favorite snacks. The fat from the nuts helps keep me full for hours and the maple vanilla flavor helps satisfy my sweet tooth without me going overboard.

Why should you make maple candied mixed nuts?

Whoever said candied nuts were just for the holidays was crazy! These nuts are naturally sweetened with maple syrup and stevia and the sweetened is intensified by the addition of salt. Sweet, salty, and crunchy – those are the flavors and textures I crave in the afternoon, and these maple candied mix nuts satisfy all of those cravings! Making these candied mixed nuts great for snacking!

How can you use these maple candied mixed nuts?

  • Perfect for when you have company over
  • Pack in your lunch box to get through your afternoon.
  • Chopped up and added to yogurt (like granola) with some fresh fruit.
  • The maple vanilla flavor would also pair well with dried fruit to make a classic trail mix extraordinary!

I chose to use mixed nuts because I really love the variety they bring. From peanuts to almonds to cashews, I’m always changing up what my favorite nut is to munch on. Mixed nuts are great because I find myself eating slower since I’m picking my way through the nuts, deciding on what to eat next and taking the time to taste my food.

Candied Mix Nuts Spotlight

Mixed nuts are a great option for snacking! They are full of fiber and low in carbs. I’m certainly not on the no carb train, but do find that if I snack on just carbs in the middle of the day, I’m  hungry almost immediately. The fat and protein in the nuts helps satisfy my hunger and therefore, I end up eating less overall.

Mixed nuts are a very calorie dense food though, so you should do yourself a favor and pre-portion out these maple candied mix nuts into 1 ounce portions, or you could easily go overboard on your snacking!

Did you know that mixed nuts are full of unsaturated fats? One ounce has about 13 grams of heart healthy unsaturated fat! It’s great to pair nuts with fruits and veggies, as remember, some vitamins found in fruits and veggies are only fat soluble, and you miss your chance to absorb these vitamins without fat present!

Candied Mix Nuts Recipe Tips

Make sure you have a rimmed baking sheet (affiliate link) as the nuts tend to like to slide everywhere!

Buy quality nuts and vanilla extract! I like to get a bag of unsalted mixed nuts from Trader Joe’s or check out the bulk bins at natural grocery stores.  You can also find quality mixed nuts online as well! 

Quality vanilla extract – spend the money and make sure it’s not imitation since it’s a star ingredient!

Nice!! I do not eat eggs. What is the replacement?

You can add half the maple mixture before putting these in the oven and the other half as soon as they are done. Let them dry out a bit and they should still be delish! Enjoy!
