  • 4 cups mixed nuts (such as cashew, pecan), (roasted, unsweetened, unsalted)
  • 1 teaspoon cumin, ground
  • 1 teaspoon ground all-spice
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • teaspoon cayenne pepper, (add more according to your liking)
  • 2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup, (add more according to your liking)
  • 3 tablespoon butter, (unsalted, melted)


  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together all the ingredients above.
  • Spray the bottom of the crock-pot with cooking spray. Spread the mixed nuts evenly on the bottom of the crock-pot. Cook on high heat for about 1 hour. Turn the heat to low, keep stirring every 20 minutes, until the nuts are glazed for about 1 hour.
  • Turn the heat off, uncovered, and let the nuts harden. Serve immediately or store in an airtight jar for up to 5 days


Slow cookers are not all made the same, If you are afraid the nuts will get burnt, you can stir every 20-30 minutes within the first hour and add about 2 tablespoons of water each time if necessary.
