As most of you know I cook and bake almost everyday. Since I eat gluten free I often have to modify baked recipes to fit my needs. Over the past year of eating gluten free I have learned a number of things. The biggest of which is that I prefer snacks like nuts or other high protein snacks more than I did when I could eat baked goods with gluten. I absolutely love trying new snack recipes with nuts. They are an easy snack to grab and go and keep my energy levels up and my sugars from crashing. Nuts are also a great party food. I often make 2 or 3 different type of nuts as appetizer during the holidays. They are delicious and easy to put in bowls without needing forks, toothpicks etc.

I know that most of us are trying desperately to finish the last bits of our holiday planning. One of the biggest challenges can be what to serve. While I love using traditional recipes I also love trying out a few new ones. Need a little inspiration in the recipe department? Look no further, here is a great recipe using McCormick brand spices that is easy to put together and I'm sure will please your guests. Best of all the ingredients are easy to find at most grocery stores and I was able to buy everything for less than 10 dollars. Who doesn't like saving money during the holidays? Without further ado here is the McCormick recipe for Spiced Nuts using three of their spices:

  3. I love nuts. I might have to spice them up a little. Thanks for the inspiration :) ela

    1. Me too! The recipe would be a great base if you wanted to add more spices such as cayenne, cloves, pumpkin spice etc.

  4. I love McCormick and I always have a bottle of Lawrys Seasoned Salt in my kitchen as well. I'm allergic to nuts so can't do this recipe today. :(

    1. I always have Lawrys Seasoned Salt in my cupboard also :) It's great on eggs!! Nut allergies run in my family too, so I understand. They have other great recipes on their site, I almost made the peppermint bark, it looks yummy!
