The restaurant sells these in their little take out store with gourmet items and cant keep them in stock. (along with the other nut recipes of theirs). Simple to do at home

Interesting take on the usual spiced or sweet nuts. As a diabetic I am pretty much staying away from pure maple syrup so I subbed Cary's Sugar Free Maple and a beaten egg white. I was using a homemade fig balsamic so when the nuts came out of the oven I used the same spices I would in a fig cake- a little ginger, some mace and some lemon zest. These were terrific. I loved the balsamic taste with the nuts. Great recipe!
