Honey Glazed Nuts

For some reason the camera makes them look unreal.

For some reason the camera makes these look unreal but they are very real and quite delicious.

I have recently been trying to eat more calories that are not sugar which doesn’t leave a lot of room in my life for yummy sweets. However I still want the taste of sweet in my life and so I made some honey glazed nuts which add some sugar but not too much. I found a recipe online and modified it slightly to fit the number of nuts I had. The first batch I made was with pecans and they were so successful I made another batch with almonds. They also turned out successfully. This recipe has the side benefit of  making my hair smell like cinnamon for the rest of the day.

Honey Glazed Nuts

  • 2 cups nuts (any kind)
  • 1 and 1 1/2 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Salt to taste

These are fairly quick to make. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and set up either a greased pan or an un-greased pan you don’t really care about. In a oven safe bowl place your nuts, then drizzle honey on top of them and sprinkle on cinnamon, don’t try and stir them yet. Place the bowl in your oven for 2 minutes until the honey is nice and runny.  Take them out and make sure all of the nuts are coated with honey and cinnamon. Dump out onto the pan in an even layer. (I tried mixing the honey and the cinnamon onto the nuts directly on the pan but after the honey made a glaze it was nearly impossible to remove the nuts from the pan without re-heating them in the oven. I highly recommend mixing the honey and cinnamon onto the nuts before placing them onto the pan.) Bake the nuts for 20 to 30 minutes or until a nice glaze starts to form. Pull them out and lightly salt them. Wait ten to to fifteen minutes or until the nuts are still warm but not hot before removing them from the pan. The nuts will come off the pan when completely cool but it will be more work.
