A Sweet and Nut-ritious Snack

Go nuts over these!

Go nuts over these!

Perfect for snacking, entertaining, or gift-giving these maple-glazed walnuts are an easy way to entice a crowd. While the sweet, nutty flavor needs no complement, adding them to a fresh salad with a tangy vinaigrette is certainly worth a try.

Begin by tossing several handfuls of walnuts into a hot saucepan. Then, add maple syrup and a dash of salt. Stir it all together until the syrup begins to caramelize and the walnuts are toasted to a golden brown. Remove the pan from the heat and spoon the nuts onto a square of parchment paper to cool. They’ll store for two weeks in a sealed, refrigerated container.

We love this tasty treat not only for its sweet crunch, but also for its omega-3 content. With only one handful you’ll enjoy your entire day’s worth and plenty of heart-healthy benefitssans those less appealing fish oil capsules. So join us in adding a little sweetness to a serious snack…but don’t spoil your dinner.

Until next time,

xoxo,
