Don’t you think nuts make perfect camping snacks? They are easy to transport, fun to eat and totally “dressable”… meaning, you can dress them up or keep them naked. Dressing up is sooooooo much more fun! This Rosemary Spiced Nuts Camping Snacks Recipe is so flavorful!
This simple recipe makes nuts that are a little salty, a little sweet and extra appetizing with a touch of fresh herbs. They only take a few minutes on the stovetop but the flavor goes on forever. I’ve been told they are the perfect accompaniment to an afternoon cocktail … I’d love to hear your opinion!

This recipe is free of gluten which is awesome for those campers with dietary restrictions, see all of our gluten free camping food.
When I am cooking with dried spices at the campsite, I often measure and mix the spices at home and just carry them in plastic containers to the campsite.
But, there are other times I want to be able to bring an assortment of spices and use them creatively while cooking without a specific recipe.
It is really convenient to carry dried spices in Portable Spice Jars In A Case … they stay clean and organized in your camp kitchen!
The fresh rosemary really puts the finishing touch on this nut recipe!
I like chopping veggies and fresh herbs with my Camping Flexible Cutting Mats that easily curl to funnel food directly into bowls and cooking pots.
These things are nice because they are lightweight, come in 3 sizes for different tasks and after cleaning them … you can hang them from a hook for storage in a visible place because they are so cute!
Just because this recipe serves 4 – 6, doesn’t mean you can’t make it when you are preparing camping meals for two because it stores well in sealed food containers and you have more to enjoy!
