Such a simple snack and way to mix up the flavor in place of plain nuts. I'll grab a handful of these for a quick snack around the house, add them to salads, crumble them over roasted Brussels sprouts, or have them in my backpack when I'm out and about, or on the trail.

  • Prep: 5 mins
  • Cook: 10 mins
  • Yields: 2 cups


2 tbsp grass-fed butter (or coconut oil)

2 tbsp 100% maple syrup

pinch sea salt

1 tsp ground cinnamon (optional)

2 cups raw walnuts (or mix of pecans + walnuts)


1Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.  Lightly coat baking sheet pan with oil or butter.

2Combine the butter, maple syrup, salt, and cinnamon in a small saucepan and gently heat over low until warmed; add nuts and toss to coat using a rubber spatula.  Spread nut mixture evenly onto sheet pan.

3Bake nuts for ~9-12 minutes (depending on your oven) and stir about half way.  Remove from the oven and allow to cool.  

4Store in a tightly sealed contain in in the fridge for up to a week, if they last that long!
