These candied nuts are so amazing that you will want to top everything with them. Toss them on an earthy salad, throw a few in a snack mix or top your favorite vegetable with them. Just try not to eat a whole batch by the handful!
- 1 teaspoon virgin coconut oil
- 1 cup salted nuts (pecans, walnuts)
- 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
- up to 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, to taste
- If your nuts are not already chopped, place them in a baggie and crush them.
You can get creative; grab a hammer if necessary!
Heat medium pan over medium heat and add coconut oil, nuts, maple syrup and cinnamon. Stir constantly for approximately 5 minutes until the nuts are evenly coated and toasted. It is extremely important to stir constantly or your nuts will burn!
Remove nuts from heat and transfer to parchment paper. Immediately separate nuts on parchment paper to keep them from sticking together. The nuts and coating will harden in 5-7 minutes. Garnish your meal with candied nuts and enjoy!
Serve immediately, or store in a sealed container for up to 2 weeks. To freeze: store in an airtight container and freeze for up to 2 months.
