    These sound like the bar nuts my grandma always has at her house but soo much better because of the pecans! I love sticky and sweet, yet crunchy and salty snacks so these would be very much enjoyed over here 🙂

  2. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    Oh yes. All the things, yes.

    I’ve only recently discovered the heavenly nectar that is golden syrup, but oh man do I love it to pieces! I would use it all the time if only it wasn’t so miserably expensive around here, and somewhat hard to come by. This sounds like the perfect way to feature it, though.

    I love the addition of sesame seed to granola – probably due to my tahini addiction. and the ginger! Well-played, friend. 🙂

    I have never tried golden syrup, and yet somehow I’m pretty sure I know exactly how it tastes and that it is indeed delicious. I’d find it very hard not to gobble up that whole bowl.

    I didn’t know it had been that icy cold in Canberra. It’s cold enough here but we don’t have ice. But we have RAIN and too much of it. These nuts look delicious. I bet they must smell amazing when they’re cooking. What a great, inspirational recipe. xx

    And just like that, you have again won my heart!

    oooo yum yum!

  10. Lisa @ Blithe Moments

    Yum, yum, yum, yum, yum, yum, yum!

    I totally used golden syrup, cinnamon and ginger on my porridge this morning, I can just imagine how good this would be.

  11. Leah

    I love doing this too! Buy ive never tried it with golden syrup, i usually use honey. Im going to try it next time.

    Golden syrup = childhood… wintery nights in NZ…. Mum making her famous Golden syrup Steamed pudding (with vanilla ice cream ) Ah, food memories!

    1. Lou

      Oh, plus licking the lid of the Golden Syrup tin 😉 Sweeeeeetie yum yum

  13. theresa

    Um, yum. The golden syrup + salty-savoury combo is one I tried on spiced nuts last year, but it was too little golden syrup to too much spice. I like the sound of these much better. I think I will try them next time I knock off work early 🙂

  14. Daisy@Nevertoosweet

    LOL gosh I don’t think I’d be able to stop eating these if I made them:) But i’m gonna try for when I have a house party im sure the guests would love them hehe

    Your house must smell amazing while these are in the oven. Back in the States, or at least the old-fashioned Southern part that I’m from, we get tins of spiced nuts at Christmas. Always homemade, always addictive. Now, with the seasons switched here in AU, I often forget to make my favourite winter treats in July. It’s like I think that I HAVE to eat these things in Dec. I’ll get used to it.

    Lovely post, by the way. A calm and quiet summation of the changing seasons and never-changing relationships.

    ‘Trusting eyes and grey snout’ just like my Milly.


    I will. Because I have ALL the ingredients, right now, in my cupboard! Whoo Hoo!

  17. Choc Chip Uru

    My eyes are ogling these nuts – I am obsessed with golden syrup anything and everything 😀


  18. Joey

    Those look beyond good. When I was little, golden syrup on toast was my favourite thing – I think now it could well be golden syrup on nuts!

  19. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    I have forgotten about golden syrup of late – it is in the pantry, but sadly under-used – and this is a welcome reminder to pull it out and put it to good use. And ginger and cinnamon, they are always welcome in my life. As is your writing 🙂

  20. Gary

    I will definitely try this

  21. hungryandfrozen

    Hannah, I say this as solemnly as possible…you have a way with nuts.


  22. Emma

    I want to smell the smell of jasmine flowers – that’s not something we have around here. I’m crazy for smelling the lilacs in the springtime, so I understand the restorative powers that lovely-smelling flowers have:)

    I have never heard of such a thing as Turkish apple tea! It sounds fabulously intriguing, like something Charlotta the Fourth would be fond of.

  23. leaf (the indolent cook)

    Not only do these nuts look good, but they would be so handy to have around as a post-exercise snack too! Also, yes, parents = home for me, too, so very much so.

  24. Louise

    OH, these sound sensational! You’re so clever with creating things. And yes we’ve been enjoying the frosty, frozen weather too.

  25. Jonathon Clarke

    This post was pure poetry. Just lovely 🙂

  26. Johanna GGG

    what a fluttery happy sweetly sticky post!

    We had some lovely sun shine this afternoon but then the sun goes and the chill wind comes through the door and I wondered what I was thinking leaving it open! Wishing you lots of sunshine

  27. Kath (My Funny Little Life)

    I know this with just sesame, they have it at my favorite Asian food store. Looks much prettier with pecans! 🙂

  28. Rach

    Mmm… this looks yummy!

  29. Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake

    Your beautiful words are making me wish I was there to soak up the sun with you! This recipe sounds deliciously nutty. 😀 Nuts are of course very healthy and oh so yummy….mmm…I think I do have some golden syrup sitting in the kitchen somewhere…

  30. Margaret

    These look divine. I usually get much more excited about nuts and seeds than chocolate.
    Gorgeous photos again, but it’s your story telling abilities that are really outstanding. 🙂

    Beautiful. Perfect. Like you. Truly 🙂

    These do sound heavenly! But oh, dear, I think Golden Syrup is very much like corn syrup, isn’t it? ie, refined sweetener–?? Can we use a brown rice syrup or agave sub instead? (pretty please, so we can keep it on WW??). 🙂


    This looks amazing! Glad I came across your blog Hannah! I’ll be subscribing for sure 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  34. Sig

    I am ON this! You know I’ll go the brown rice syrup route but I cannot imagine it will detract from this warm and wonderful mix.

    Sticky Nuts. Perfect 😀
