Honey-roasted nuts make a delicious snack to keep on hand. Although I am using hazelnuts to make my recipe today, you can use pecans, almonds, peanuts, or a mixture of your preference.


  • 3 1/2 cups (16-ounce bag) of hazelnuts, raw and unsalted
  • 3 tablespoons of butter plus a little more butter to lightly grease the pan
  • 3 tablespoons of honey
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon of granulated Splenda or fine sugar to be sprinkled on the hazelnuts after they're baked


In a microwave-safe bowl, melt 3 tablespoons of butter for a few seconds in the microwave.

Now, add 3 tablespoons of honey and 1 teaspoon of smoked paprika to the melted butter. Stir well.

In a large bowl, add 3 1/2 cups of raw, unsalted hazelnuts. Pour the prepared honey mixture over the nuts. Use a wooden spoon to mix the nuts into the honey mixture. Stir until the hazelnuts are coated well.

Spread the honey-coated nuts onto a lightly buttered baking sheet. Then sprinkle 1 1/2 teaspoons of kosher salt over the top of them.

Bake the hazelnuts in a 350-degree oven for about 30 minutes.

Transfer the pan to a cooling rack and allow the hazelnuts to cool completely. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of granulated Splenda or fine sugar over the hazelnuts, if desired. Then separate the nuts by hand and store them in Ziploc bags or in an airtight container.

Gin Lee is a published author, journalist, and contributor, among other works, and she resides in a rural town in Arkansas with her husband and their fur babies, Highway, Princess, and Stinkpot the turtle. A huge thanks goes out to all for reading, following, and sharing Gin Lee's articles! Thank you! Since Gin Lee lives in a rural area, there's not much local news to cover. So, she covers articles of interest on how-to's about organic gardening, recipes, homesteading, and survival techniques. If those things are of interest to you, then you'll never (hopefully) be disappointed. She tries to cover a wide variety of articles to entertain everyone. Comments are turned off due to rudeness and hatefulness. The world has enough vulgarity, hatefulness, and arrogance without it having any help. Since having the simple courtesy of manners is lacking and sharing words of kindness does not abide in a few people. Those few people ruin what's supposed to be educational and an enjoyable experience for all others. Gin Lee does have children and young adults that are followers. Potty mouths, vulgarity, and hate are not acceptable. Apologies go out to those of you who generally are very sweet and also to Gin Lee's followers who have been a witness to others being rude and malicious. Hopefully, you'll be understanding of the measures that have to be put into place. Please be kind to one another.
