This is a super quick, easy, but yummy recipe. These Maple Honey Roasted Walnuts make the perfect snack.
Growing up, I remember my mom making these all the time. I would help her mix the nuts with the honey mixture, and then of course, help her eat them.
I didn’t like walnuts, but when she made these honey roasted ones, I could eat handfuls at a time.
If you do not like walnuts, feel free to use other nuts like peanuts, almonds, pecans, hazelnuts. Maybe even seeds like pepitas or sunflower seeds. If you do choose a smaller nut/seed, make sure to cut the baking time down, and maybe even the oven temperature to 300-325 degrees F.
The baking time can really differ based on how toasted you like your nuts. If you like raw-er nuts, bake them for around 10 minutes. If you like a more roasted flavor, bake for 20 minutes. Just make sure to keep your eye on them so they don’t burn.
I added a bit of maple syrup into these honey roasted walnuts because it adds another layer of flavor. If you don’t have any, just use more honey.

Maple Honey Roasted Walnuts
These make for a great snack, healthy and super easy to make. These are vegan, dairy-free, oil-free, gluten-free, and refined-sugar free.
- 2 cups raw walnuts 1
- 4 tbsp honey 2
- 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
- 2 tbsp water
- 1 tbsp black sesame seeds (optional)
- pinch of salt
Microwave the honey, maple syrup, and water together for about 30 seconds or until it is loose and easy to mix. Pour over the nuts.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Scoop the nuts out onto the sheet, draining whatever excess honey that's in the bowl. Spread them out evenly. Sprinkle the black sesame seeds and salt on top.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 15-20 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely before enjoying. They will be soft straight out of the oven. They harden as they cool. Store in an airtight container in your fridge for a couple of weeks.
- You would use any nut here, but do keep in mind that smaller nuts/seeds need less baking time.
- I used organic clover honey, but any kind will work here.
