what do I marinate these in besides spices, they need something liquidy in order for the spices to stick right?

I made some once using a bit of maple syrup and some mesquite powder. I am not really sure what the mesquite powder does, but I was trying to recreate some that I had bought and they had it in there. It seems to leave sort of a thickish coating on them. I apparently used far less of either it or the maple syrup because mine had less coating, but I really liked mine better!
I had no recipe. I just mixed and tasted until they tasted good. If you don't use maple syrup, you could use a little agave syrup. If that's too sweet for you, perhaps thin it down with a little water or add some lemon or lime juice.
ETA: I used briefly soaked walnuts and then dehydrated them until crisp.

I use some oil, just enough to make everything stick together.
Blend this with the spices, raw stock powder, salt or anything you want. Put the nuts into a bag or container, add the mixture then shake them up good.
It depend on whether you want to do savoury or sweet as to which oil to use.
I use walnut oil with my sweet nuts (ground cinnamon, clove and nutmeg, sweetener and a small amount of salt). And olive oil with my savoury nuts.

so I should use oil for spicy salty nuts, and maple syrup or agave for sweet ones?
