I typically serve these glazed walnuts during the winter holidays, but they are also good to have around for adding a little crunch to salads or for topping off ice cream.


  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups walnut halves


  1. In a medium size bowl combine the maple syrup, cinnamon, salt and vanilla. Add the walnuts, stir well.
  2. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil. Lightly spray the foil with a cooking spray.
  3. Spread the nut mixture out on the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake in a preheated 350 degree F oven for 12 to 15 minutes, stirring every 4 minutes or so.
  5. The walnuts are ready when the maple glaze is bubbly. Remove them from the oven and allow to cool.
