Sweet Walnuts

Everyone loves these along with my sugared pecans. These walnuts are a little different, though. It's a different nut for one thing, so that adds a different flavor. I add allspice to these too. They're both great anytime, but especially for the holidays. Hope you like them. Enjoy!

We absolutely adored these sugary, sweet, and lightly spiced walnuts. The walnuts are well coated with a delicious crust that pops in your mouth. These are a scrumptious snack and will also add a nice little crunch sprinkled over a salad. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Sweet Walnuts


  1. Preheat oven to 350*.
  2. In mixing bowl, whisk egg white and water until frothy.
  3. Add walnuts; stir to coat completely.
  4. Transfer walnuts to a strainer and allow to drain for about 5 minutes. (You could probably skip this part because I only get about 3-5 drops).
  5. Combine sugar and seasonings in a large resealable plastic bag: shake well to blend.
  6. Add walnuts. Shake to coat thoroughly.
  7. Remove walnuts; arrange in a single layer on large parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  8. Bake 13-15 minutes, turning halfway through baking. Remove from oven; cool completely.
  9. Sprinkle over a salad or enjoy as a snack!
