Crunchy Maple Nuts

Surprisingly delicious and easy to make. Delicious with walnuts, pecans, or almonds.


Preheat oven to 250.  Line a jellyroll pan with parchment or waxed paper.  Stir all ingredients until combined. 

small recipe
Bake 40-50 minutes until dry and crunchy.  Every 10-20 minutes during baking remove pan from oven and stir well.

large recipe
Bake 60 minutes, then stir.  Stir every 10-20 minutes until dry and crunchy. 

Small Recipe
1 cup nuts
3 T maple syrup
¼ t kosher salt

Large Recipe
4 c nuts
3/4 c maple syrup
1 t kosher salt
 
It is important to stir during baking to get all of the maple off the parchment and onto the nuts.  Stirring also helps them bake more evenly.

When they are done remove the parchment paper so the walnuts won’t stick to it. 

Cool completely and serve or store in an airtight container up to two weeks.

 

Problems

Sticky - Be sure to bake the nuts until they are dry. If they are undercooked they will be sticky and soft.

Overbaked - If the nuts are overdone they have almost a fried taste. Bake them until they are dry and not longer.
