Vanilla Roasted Walnuts

I’m slightly addicted to these Gluten Free Vanilla Roasted Walnuts and so is my husband. They have a hint of sweetness and a nice burst of vanilla goodness. On top of that, Walnuts are a great source of Omega-3’s, have a high antioxident count and are also beneficial for cardiovascular health. So I’m on the walnut bandwagon.

Instructions

  1. 1Place walnuts and oil in a cast iron skillet (that’s what I used, you can experiment) and turn heat to high
  2. 2As soon as you hear the slightest sizzle, turn heat down to medium or low
  3. 3Toast walnuts a few minutes until they smell nice and nutty
  4. 4Add agave and distribute around pan stirring, cook for a minute or two, then add salt
  5. 5Scrape the beans out of the vanilla pod and stir into walnuts
  6. 6Remove walnuts from pan and add just a dash of cinnamon if you like
  7. 7Serve
