You’re going to have to act quickly, because every moment you spend not making these delicious spiced candied walnuts, will be a moment you can never get back.
Yesterday I was feeling especially snacky, and because I can never seem to get it together in time to put together a proper meal when I’m on my own for the night, a plate of random bits and pieces it was. Enter my new favorite snack plate.
Spiced Candied Walnuts
- 1 cup halves walnuts
- 2 tbsp canola oil
- 1/4 tsp cayenne
- 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
- 2 splenda packets or 1/2 tsp sugar
- dash of salt and pepper
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
- In a small mixing bowl combine all ingredients and mix well.
- Spread walnut mixture on a cookie sheet and allow to bake 7-8 minutes, or until slightly toasted.
- Cool and serve!
These walnuts are flavorful and satisfying on their own, but would be an excellent addition to a salad. Also, as with ALL of my recipes please feel free to tweak according to your own personal tastes. Remember: a pinch or two of cayenne goes a LONG way (I always seem to forget this!).
A glass of wine, some DVR action, and my night was a success.
