These are great to snack on, or to add some extra crunch and a bit of sweetness to your salads.
4 cups walnuts
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup palm sugar, or whole brown sugar
1 tbsp coconut oil or butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp salt
Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, either use a cooking spray to lightly coat or brush on oil or butter. Preheat your oven to 325f.
Combine the honey, oil, vanilla extract and half the salt in a small saucepan. Heat until all ingredients are well combined.
Add the walnuts to the honey mixture and toss to evenly coat.
Pour the walnuts onto your prepared baking sheet, and spread into a even layer.
Bake the walnuts for a total of 20 minutes, string well every five to prevent burning.
Once your walnuts are golden brown, remove from the oven and give them a good mix. Let them stand for a few minutes to cool slightly, then sprinkle on the remaining salt and granulated sugar, stir again. As they cool break apart the clumps as the honey starts to harden.
After everything is cooled you can keep them in a airtight container for up to two weeks.
