This was how I ended up with those burnt nuts:
Lately, I have been feeling some tightness in my muscles (from all the running), so after popping the tray of walnuts into the oven, I decided to make the full use of time by doing some light stretching. (I know! Sometimes, I tend to do things at the most inappropriate times.) I got too carried away with my stretching, and before I knew it, the smell of burnt nuts filled the house. It is certainly not my first time making these nuts, and I really ought to have known how easily these nuts would get burnt. I saw those walnuts, and actually contemplated eating it – only because I hate to throw nuts away – but decided not to in the end.

You could also store them in a pretty little jar, and give it away as a gift too! I’m sure your friends would adore them!
Maple Candied Walnuts
Adapted from The Gluten Free Vegan by Susan O'Brien
1 1/2 cups raw walnuts
3 tbsp pure maple syrup
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 150C/300F.
- Mix walnuts with maple syrup and cinnamon in a bowl; continue to mix until the walnuts are well coated with maple syrup and cinnamon.
- Spread the walnuts out evenly, in a single layer, on baking pan lined with baking paper. Bake nuts at 150C/300F for about 10 – 15 mins, tossing them every 5 mins so that they do not burn. Remove from oven once they are browned.
- Allow to cool, and transfer them to an air-tight container. Keep them at room temperature, or in a refrigerator. Enjoy!
