Maple Glazed Nuts

Today I have a delicious treat for you that takes only five minutes to prepare…

Maple Glazed Nuts

Mapled Glazed Almonds, Pecans & Walnuts

These taste SO good! And they’re packed with lots of nutty goodness.

I’ve just made a fresh batch as a treat for Lil’ L and his friend when they get home from school.  I’m also going to bag some up for Mark to take out on his mountain bike rides this weekend.

As well as making a great post-school and exercise snack, they’re also the perfect snack to munch on at work to keep your energy levels up.

Be warned though, they are addictive and they will test your will power!  If (like me) you’re tempted to devour the whole lot in one go, I suggest bagging it up into individual size portions and hiding them.

Here’s how I make them..

Hands-on time: 5 minutes    Cooking time: 5 minutes
Ready in: 8 minutes


  • 2 cups of nuts (I use a mix of raw walnut halves, pecans and whole roasted almonds*)
  • 4 tbsp maple syrup (I use Clark’s Original Maple Syrup, which is a mix of maple and carob syrup. It tastes great but is much cheaper than pure maple syrup)
    sea salt, optional

* You will often find that nuts such as almonds, cashews and peanuts are cheaper in Asian grocery stores or in the World aisles of large supermarkets.  Currently, a 750g bag of Aasani Almonds costs £5 in Tesco.


1.  Preheat a dry frying pan (skillet) on a medium-high heat.

2. Add the nuts and dry fry for 2 minutes, stirring continuously.  Add the maple syrup and continue stirring for about 3 minutes, until the nuts are fully coated and the syrup has caramelised and become very sticky.

3. Space out the nuts on a piece of non stick baking paper.  If you like the sweet and salty combo, lightly sprinkle the nuts with salt as soon as they have left the pan.  As they cool, the nuts will firm up, become shiny, and not sticky at all.  Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.

  1. These look lovely – I have only recently got into doing more with nuts than just eating them plain, and think I’d love this preparation method. I will have to look out for maple syrup with carob syrup too, I’ve never seen that mix (but like the sound of the cheaper price and I like carob to boot!).

  2. I’m a sucker for glazed nuts, love them on a salad or casserole and yes, when I make extra for later I end up eating the whole jar. Hiding individual portions sounds good! I haven’t seen carob syrup or carob/maple syrup, I wonder whether it’s available in the US?

    1. Hi Bessie! Thank you so much for your feedback. I’m really happy to hear that you enjoyed them 😀 I’m now thinking of other ingredients that we could maple glaze… maybe sesame and sunflower seed clusters? I’ll have to give it a try this weekend and see if it works out!

    1. In an airtight container, they will keep for a week at room temperature. If you wish to keep them for longer, I would recommend storing them in the freezer. They will last for weeks in there.

  3. Hey Kelly! Great to hear from you! Your maple cinnamon nuts sound absolutely delicious. I adore cinnamon but had never thought of adding it to nuts. Definitely going to try this! 😀

  4. This is my favorite candied nuts recipe! They make lovely gifts and I just layered them with homemade vanilla pudding and bourbon soaked vanilla cookies! Yum!
