These sweet and crunchy walnuts are already a new favorite in my home.
I served these Maple Glazed Walnuts over a large kale salad that I brought to our New Year’s Eve party, and everyone agreed– they are WAY better than croutons! In fact, they’re so delicious, you could probably serve them as a sweet treat on their own. They’d make an excellent party snack!
Even better, they only take about 5 minutes to prepare.
Maple Glazed Walnuts
makes 2 cups
recipe from Ellie Krieger
2 cups walnuts
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt
In a large skillet over medium heat, combine the walnuts, maple syrup and salt.
Stir often, until the walnuts are toasted and the maple syrup is caramelized, about 3-5 minutes.
Remove from the heat, and allow to cool completely.
Note: These walnuts are most crunchy when allowed to dry completely, preferably overnight. If you have a dehydrator, you can speed up the process by drying them for 4 hours at 118F. (You could probably prepare these completely in the dehydrator, but I haven’t tried it myself.)
