These glazed walnuts have a crunchy coating of pure maple syrup! They’re easy to make and healthier than candied nuts: perfect for salads and snacking.
- 1 cup raw walnuts
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
- 2 pinches kosher salt
- Add the walnuts and maple syrup to a small non-stick skillet over medium heat. When the maple just starts to bubble, reduce the heat to low but still slowly bubbling. Simmer for about 6 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- In the last minute when the maple syrup is mostly evaporated, stir continuously until the liquid is totally cooked out and the nuts start clumping together (but watch so that it doesn’t burn or go too far and become powdery, not glossy!). Immediately remove from the heat.
- Transfer the walnuts to a sheet of parchment paper in a single layer. Sprinkle with the salt and allow to cool to room temperature, about 5 minutes if eating right away and about 15 minutes if you want to store them for later use. Store in a covered container at room temperature.
