Jason’s Salty & Sweet Nut Mix

(Gluten-Free and Vegan)



1 cup walnuts

1 cup pecans

1 cup almonds

2 tsp. vegan Worcestershire sauce

1/3 cup olive oil

2 tsp. salt

1 tsp. black pepper

½ tsp. onion powder

½ tsp. garlic powder

1/3 cup agave syrup

1 cup dried fruits (cherries, raisins, cranberries, etc.)


Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Combine the nuts, oil, Worcestershire and spices in a large bowl and mix until they are well-coated. Put the nuts on a sheet pan and bake for 8 minutes. Stir and bake again for another 2 minutes. Remove from the oven and immediately add agave and dried fruit and stir until the glaze has hardened. Let the mix cool and store in an air-tight container.


Although you can never predict what flavors might be in our next nut mix, this recipe was left with us by one of our kitchen friends and has always been very popular. It has simple ingredients but is a sure way to deliver a lot of flavor. In its place, maple syrup can be swapped for agave syrup, or omitted for a savory mix. Other things like chocolate or toasted coconut flakes can be added as well for more variety. Just make sure to cool completely before adding things that might melt.
