Warmed Spiced Walnuts

This quick and easy to make walnut recipe can be a delightful topping for any dessert or salad. The rosemary marries the sweet and savoury flavours, and the garam masala adds a warming nuanced spiced aroma. This recipe calls for making a larger batch, so that you can have a little extra on hand for your next recipe or snacking desires.



4 cups walnuts

1 tbsp coconut oil

1/2 tbsp dried rosemary

1/2 tbsp garam masala

1/2 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp ginger powder

pinches of pink himalayan salt

3 tbsp coconut nectar or agave nectar



Place the walnuts in a large dry pan, over medium low heat. Toss occasionally for about 10 minutes, until the walnuts are evenly toasted. Remove the walnuts from the heat source and set aside. Add the coconut oil to the heated pan. Stir in the rosemary, garam masala, cumin and ginger powder into the oil. Add the walnuts and toss them in the spices. Add the coconut nectar and salt, and stir until it is evenly distributed. Remove the spiced walnuts from the heat and allow the mixture to harden.
