Sweet Cinnamon Walnuts

A great ebook, Raw for the Holidays
,has been on my list of books to purchase for a few weeks. Especially after seeing so many of the teaser recipes on the blog!

This is one of the recipes from that book and when I saw it, I immediately knew I wanted to try it. I've made a few changes, but they are tasty just the same!
These are the perfect little nibble and a great little snack to have on hand. I've used walnuts here, but you could easily substitute pecans, almonds, or other nuts.

This is also another great recipe to give for the holidays. It does use one of my favorite kitchen appliances, the dehydrator, but I'm sure you could make these in a low heat oven just as well.

Spiced Walnuts

Sweet Cinnamon Walnuts

2 tbsp coconut oil
3 tbsp agave nectar
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
3 cups raw walnuts
1/2 c dried flake coconut

Warm oil until it becomes liquid. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Spread out on 2 Teflex sheets and place into dehydrator. Dry at 110 degrees for 15-20 hours until dry.
