Vanilla roasted walnuts
As soon as I saw these at Elana’s Pantry, I knew I needed to make them. So delicious! I definitely recommend that you try them. I haven’t been able to walk past the bowl without grabbing a handful, and I’m already planning to make them again very soon.
Recipe: Vanilla Roasted Walnuts
(recipe found at Elana’s Pantry)
2 c. walnuts
1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil (I didn’t use this much because my pan was nonstick.)
2 Tbsp. agave nectar
1/4 tsp. kosher salt + sea salt for sprinkling at the end (Naturally, the extra sea salt was all me. I couldn’t help myself!)
1-2 vanilla beans
dash of ground cinnamon
Place walnuts and oil in a large skillet and turn heat to high. When you hear the nuts begin to sizzle, turn heat down to medium/low. Toast walnuts until the smell nice and nutty. Add agave nectar and distribute around pan, stirring and cooking for a minute or two. Add 1/4 tsp. salt. Scrape the beans out of the vanilla pod and add to walnuts. Remove walnuts from pan and add a dash of cinnamon.
