Agave Glazed Walnuts

Nuts, nuts, nuts... I love nuts.  There are so many varieties to choose from, pecans, almonds, macadamia nuts, brazilian nuts, coconuts and of course walnuts.  They're a delicious source of healthy fat and can be used in many creative ways.  My recent attempts with eating Raw have shown me the versatility of the nut. Crusts, breads, smoothies, cream, ice cream...all can be made with the simple nut!

The recipe I'm sharing with you today creates a heavenly walnut.  Originally inspired and borrowed from my sweet friend Noel, you will love the simplicity of this recipe! I understand there are some nut haters out there, but before you judge I would give these glazed goodies a try. Sweet and yet still nutty, I suggest starting with these if you're normally not a walnut fan. Sprinkle them on a salad, add them to ice cream or even eat a few as a snack. You may be surprised by their tasty flavor!

{Agave Glazed Walnuts}

4 TBSP Raw Agave Syrup
2 TBSP Earth Balance-Soy Free Version
1 Cup Gluten-Free Raw Walnuts

Pour it all into a medium pan and sauté on medium heat.
When the Walnuts are hot, lower the flame and allow the nuts to simmer until the glaze has become thick.  You will know the Walnuts are ready when there is no liquid in the pan and the nuts have completely soaked up the Agave and Earth Balance. Let them cool and then store the nuts in an air tight container to keep them soft and moist.

Eat a few as a snack or dessert or a topping for your salad and enjoy the beautiful benefits of these nutritious nuts!

I love walnuts, too. I used to make glazed walnuts with a recipe from Fine Cooking, but it used brown sugar. Never tried any other kind of sweetener. Looks like agave works great.

Love how simple these are!! Ohh, I'll have to give them a try. I'd asume they'd work with honey as well? I just bought a bunch that was on sale. :P
