Total Time: 15 minutes
- 1 1/2 cups California walnut havles and pieces
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1/4 tsp salt
This fall favorite is nutty, earthy, and perfectly spiced with pumpkin. Use these walnuts as a topping for yogurt, oatmeal, or as a snack!
Toast walnuts in a dry frying pan over medium heat, stirring frequently, about 5–7 minutes or until fragrant. Pour onto a large rimmed baking sheet with a nonstick baking mat or parchment paper.
In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, pumpkin pie spice and salt. Cook on medium until sugar melts and is no longer grainy, about 3 minutes.
Remove from heat immediately, add walnuts and stir to coat. Pour walnuts onto prepared lined baking sheet and separate with a fork. Cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
