When my walnuts were done cooking, I wanted them a little sweeter, so I added two more Tbsp organic maple syrup and baked and stirred again. They're like candy and I've almost eaten all of them, and they haven't even cooled yet. I'll make this recipe (with the extra syrup baked on) for my walnut-loving grandparents, package it in a Christmas tin and send it to them--Merry Christmas Grandma and Grandpa! This recipe will also be a great treat for my vegan friends.

This is so easy and so very delicious! I used organic maple syrup and organic walnuts for an extra nutritious treat. I (approximately) doubled this re cipe, poured a package of walnuts into a pyrex baking dish and drizzled maple syrup over them.....tossed to make sure all the nuts were covered, and baked for about 30 minutes. Maybe that was a little too long, but the aroma in the house is to die for, and the nuts will disappear quickly, I'm sure!
