Prep Time: 5 Minutes

Cook Time: 30 Minutes

Yield: 1 Cups


½ tablespoon coconut sugar

¼ cup maple syrup

1 cup raw walnuts (pieces, halves, or whole, whatever you prefer)

Flaky salt for topping


Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

  1. Using a fork, whisk the coconut sugar and maple together in a bowl until the sugar dissolves and thick syrup forms.

  2. Add the walnuts and stir until coated.

  3. Pour everything on to a parchment paper lined sheet pan in a single layer and bake for 30 minutes, tossing halfway through cook time and making sure the nuts remain in a single layer.

  4. When you remove the nuts from the oven, toss them once more immediately, and then, still in a single layer, sprinkle with flaky salt. Allow the nuts to sit for 10-15 minutes to crystallize.

  5. Once hardened, break the nuts apart by crumbling the parchment paper in your hands. Store in an airtight jar or container.
