Maple Glazed Walnuts / Candied Walnuts

I always like to try different ingredients in my salads. I like to have one sweet ingredient, be it raisins, dried cranberries, dried cherries or chopped dried prunes. I also add different variety of nuts like walnuts, almonds, pecans and pine nuts to increase the protein content. I came across candied walnuts in a restaurant and I decided to make it at home. The glazed walnuts also make a great snack!

This can be made in a matter of minutes and can also be stored for future use. The walnuts are tossed in maple syrup on the stovetop to make delicious sweet walnuts. The same recipe can be followed with pecans or any nuts for that matter. You can also add in spice powders but this time I kept it simple.

(Recipe Source: Food Network)
Walnuts - 2 cups
Maple Syrup - 1/3 cup
A pinch of salt


  1. In a non-stick skillet, add the walnuts and toast them for a minute until the raw smell goes away.
  2. Slowly add in the maple syrup and salt and with the help of a wooden spoon keep stirring, so that the maple syrup coats all the nuts.
  3. In a matter of two minutes, the maple syrup would be bubbling and would have coated all the nuts.
  4. Switch off the stove and allow it to cool completely.
  5. Store it in an airtight container and add to your favorite salads or munch on as a healthy snack!

And watch my Youtube video featuring the recipe!
