These Maple Cardamom Candied Walnuts are insanely simple to make and truthfully, compared to conventional candied nuts, are far less sweet and use only quality ingredients. You need maple syrup, coconut sugar, cardamom, cinnamon, salt and obviously walnuts. The rest of the magic happens in the oven. It's recommend to let them cool completely before eating them (all).
