Description

An easy, simple to make snack that’s healthy and perfect for autumn.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons Sugar
  • ½ teaspoons Cinnamon
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter (I Used Light Butter)
  • 2 cups Plain Walnuts
  • 1 pinch Salt

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 400ºF.

Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Melt the butter in a pan on the stove top and add the walnuts and all but 1 teaspoon of the cinnamon sugar mixture. On low heat, stir the walnuts for 1 minute until they are fully coated and all the sugar has dissolved.

Place the walnuts, in a single layer, on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle on the remaining cinnamon sugar and a pinch of salt. Place in the preheated 400ºF oven for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and toss with a spoon or spatula.

Serve warm or allow to cool completely and store in a sealed jar. Makes 4-8 servings depending on your appetite.

I’m sorry to hear the walnuts burned. I’ve made the recipe several times without that problem but perhaps my oven does not run as hot or yours runs hotter. Please let me know how you do on a reduced temperature and/or time.

Going to try this recipe one more time watching it closer and decreasing the oven time. Sugar/walnut mixture burnt in 10 min. Maybe try a 375 oven.
