Spiced Walnuts**

  • 4 cups walnut halves
  • ½-1 teaspoon Himalayan or sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1-2 Tablespoons avocado oil
  1. Preheat oven to 325°F.
  2. In a small bowl, mix powdered seasonings together, then add Worcestershire sauce & oil.
  3. Pour the seasoning blend over walnuts, mixing well to make sure walnuts are covered.
  4. Place parchment paper* on a baking pan, then put the walnuts in a single layer and bake for 8 minutes, then stir the walnuts on the baking dish and bake for another 5-8 minutes. They will crisp after cooling.

Use caution because they will go from perfection to slightly burnt quickly.

*The parchment paper helps the walnuts cook more evenly, preventing them from burning on the bottom.

**Feel free to replace the walnuts with pecans if you’d prefer.
