Candied Walnuts

Standard

Even if you’re perfectly Paleo you no doubt occasionally have candy cravings. That’s normal! The trick is not to throw in the towel and cheat too badly, but to get creative with naturally sweetened snacks.

Dates are always a good choice to help cure sugar cravings, and so are raisins, but for those times when something a little more candy-like is needed, you can always whip up some Candied Walnuts…

INGREDIENTS

1/4 cup walnuts
2 tablespoons honey or raw agave nectar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

RECIPE

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.
In a small bowl, mix together the honey/agave, cinnamon and vanilla extract to form the candy dip.
Line a baking tray with foil or parchment paper.
Dip each walnut piece into the candy dip, making sure you cover the entire nut, and then place each nut about 1/4 inch apart from one another on the baking tray.
Continue until all the nuts are dipped and placed on the tray.
Place the tray in the oven and bake for 5 minutes.
Remove the tray from the oven and set aside to cool for about an hour, or until the candy dip has hardened on the nuts (to expedite this cooling process, place the nuts in an air-tight container and refrigerator).

Enjoy this sweet but healthy alternative to candy!
