Nuts! Nuts are so good for you! When eaten in moderation, and as long as you don’t have an allergy to them, nuts can offer a good source of energy, a small whack of protein to feed your muscles, & can act as a speed bump to slow down the sugar absorption when eating fruit!

I love this nut recipe, and it makes an easy Christmas gift. I dare you to not eat most of the batch yourself. Why not try it out this year and look like you’re a perfect little Martha – even though you’re not!

Candied Walnuts

(original recipe by elanaspantry.com but she used pecans, which I love, but wanted to try something different, so I swapped for walnuts. She also used yacon syrup or agave, both of which are higher in fructose content, but given that this is a ‘treat’, and the amt you’d get in this recipe is low per serving…and I tried honey, which didn’t work out right…so agave it is) <–gotta love run-on sentences! Martha would never have a run-on sentence!

2 cups walnuts
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoon light agave nectar
½ tsp celtic sea salt
  1. Toss all ingredients together in a large bowl
  2. Place in a pyrex baking dish
  3. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes
  4. Cool and serve
