Authentic Sacramento Espresso Glazed Nuts

Authentic Sacramento Espresso Glazed Nuts


  • 1 cup whole California almonds
  • 1 cup whole pecans
  • 1 cup whole walnuts
  • 1 espresso shot (about 2.5 oz.)
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil


  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Line a baking pan (not a sheet, the juices will run off!) with parchment paper or a non-stick mat.
  2. Whisk together the espresso shot, maple syrup, vanilla extract, cinnamon and coconut oil. Toss with almonds, pecans and walnuts and let sit for 10 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove the nuts and place in a single layer on the baking pan. Drizzle with leftover espresso sauce.
  3. Place in the oven and bake for 10 minutes.
  4. Remove and gently stir the nuts in the pan. Place back in the oven and cook an additional 7-10 minutes until toasted!
  5. Remove and let cool completely. Store in an airtight container or jar. These make the perfect hostess gifts!
