Whole30 Pumpkin Spice Nuts - Paleo, Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Keto. EASY and only 3-ingredients!

These Pumpkin Spice Roasted Nuts are an EASY way to rock the fall pumpkin spice trend with only 3 ingredients. Pumpkin spice, but make it Whole30! Roasted pumpkin spice nuts are everything fall wrapped up in some salty goodness. I don’t love pumpkin, but the flavor of these is just right and perfect for your fall events like a Halloween Party or Thanksgiving to balance out the sweets. Though you might want to make a double batch, so you don’t devour them all before the event!

Why We Love These Pumpkin Spice Roasted Nuts

First, we love that they are Paleo, Keto, dairy-free, gluten-free, and egg-free. A great option for so many dietary needs. Second, you can use whatever seeds or nuts you have on hand or prefer. A great way to use up the odds and ends of nuts in your pantry! Or, make it super simple by using an unroasted nut mix (I get one from Sam’s Club).

Whole30 Pumpkin Spice Nuts - Paleo, Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Keto. EASY and only 3-ingredients!

Many store-bought flavored nuts have a variety of added sugars and additives. This recipe only has 3 ingredients (well 4 if you count salt!), keeping it nutrient dense and simple. Plus, With only 5 minutes of prep, this is an easy way to spice up your nuts!

You Can Roast Nuts in an Air Fryer?

You sure can! It depends on the size of your air fryer basket as to how long it will take and how many nuts you can do at once. However, this recipe is a small batch and should fit inside the basket of most air fryers. You can read more about what air fryer I have and why I love them here.

I actually really enjoy air-fried nuts. It’s faster and they get nice and crispy. I also use the air fryer with my Perfect Roasted Pecan recipe. The crispy crunch the air fryer gives those pecans, even without using any oil, is perfection.

Whole30 Pumpkin Spice Nuts - Paleo, Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Keto. EASY and only 3-ingredients!

Ingredients

  • Mixed nuts – Use whatever combination of seeds or nuts you have on hand or prefer. A great way to use up the odds and ends of nuts in your pantry! Or, make it super simple by using an unroasted nut mix (I get one from Sam’s Club).
  • Olive oil or avocado oil – I usually use olive oil, as that is what I have on hand, but you can use avocado oil as well.
  • Pumpkin Pie Spice – This is a premade spice you can find in the baking aisle of most stores, especially in the fall. But, if you want, you can also make your own pumpkin spice blend
  • Salt – The range of salt is entirely dependent on personal preference. My husband prefers his nuts less salty, using only a 1/4 teaspoon salt. I loooove mine salty and like the 1/2 teaspoon. You do you!

    I’m doing a round of whole 30 and these were a priority for me to prep and have on hand. They are roasting as I type this and it is honestly absurd how wonderful my apartment smells. I followed exactly as written (just doubled), and they come out so perfectly spiced, roasty, and crunchy. The perfect snack nut- these beat out any packaged roasted nuts by a long shot.

    These are super easy and delicious. I made a single batch not knowing of folks would like them. Needless to say they were a hit. Today I’m making a double batch for some ladies coming over for Bible study. So yummy! Thank you for this delicious and super easy recipe.

  4. When I first made these I knew for sure I’d be the only one eating the entire batch. Once they were baking my 5 yr old son who is the pickiest eater came out asking about the yummy smell. These quickly turned into a family favorite and I’ve made several batches this season.

        I made these during my last whole30. I kept the salt low for me, and I thought it came out pretty well. My husband absolutely loved it. I used pecans, cashews and pistachios because that is what I had on hand.
