Pour some sugar on these
These glazed walnuts are quite a treat. They are crunchy and caramelized to perfection with honey and sugar, and the roasting brings out the nuttiness. We love them because you can eat them as a sweet snack or toss them onto almost any salad. Warning: These are addictive, so if you want to ensure you have enough for your salad, you might want to hide them from grabby little fingers, and also maybe hide them from yourself. We promise that these glazed walnuts will become the tiny, crunchy, flavorful superstars of every salad … so much so that every bite of salad without one of these walnuts makes me sad.
Buy them or make them
Yes, you can buy glazed walnuts pre-packaged from almost any grocery store, but it’s more cost effective to purchase a large bag of raw walnuts and glaze them at home. And not only are they extra tasty when they are warm from your own oven, but they will make your house have that “somebody is baking something sweet and wonderful” smell. Make a lot so you have extras available. Seriously, you have to make these … period … the end.
Tip: Consider storing all nuts (raw, glazed, etc.) in the freezer to keep them fresh for months and to ensure the nut oils don’t become rancid.
Watch the video (see ingredients and directions below)
- 10 oz bag of walnuts
- 1/3 cup of honey (you can use more — they will be sweeter!)
- 1/4 cup of organic sugar cane (or, if you prefer, you could use coconut palm sugar)
- Line a baking or cookie sheet with parchment paper and spray cooking spray on paper. Don’t skip this step! You will have a sticky mess and the walnuts will stick to the baking sheet. Yikes!
- Place walnuts on the parchment paper.
- Pour honey over walnuts and coat them generously.
- Sprinkle sugar evenly over the walnuts.
- Place in oven 350 for 20 minutes.
- Let them cool, put in a freezer-safe bag and store them in freezer to keep their freshness.
Deliciously simple. Enjoy!
