For some reason every time I try to create a recipe using walnuts, my mind goes to baklava! I’m sure there are many delicious recipes that are perfect when made with walnuts, but I just can’t get baklava out of my head!!
The very nice people at California Walnuts sent me a bag of delicious walnuts, and I really, really did try to come up with something exciting and different.
and I did, but they are still inspired by baklava. Maybe it is because my brain was in Greece during the entire month of July. Maybe it is because I really do love baklava, I just don’t necessarily like standing in the kitchen for an hour and a half brushing butter on individual sheets of filo dough, LOL These Baklava Honey-Glazed Walnuts give you the flavors of baklava, without the butter and hard work.
What you need to make this recipe
- lemon peel
- a pinch of salt
How to make Baklava Honey-Glazed Walnuts
Start by mixing all of the ingredients together in a bowl…..
Pour the mixture out onto a silpat or parchment paper lined baking sheet. Make sure to spread them out into a single layer…..
Place in a preheated 350 degree oven for 10 minutes, and voila…..
They will be hot and bubbly, and smell delicious! Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely! They will be sticky and gooey, but don’t worry, they will harden up as they cool. Break them apart and store in a sealed container…or eat them all…your choice!!

Oh my goodness, Lisa, these sound SO delicious! Walnuts are so good for you and you’ve taken them over the top! Love! Pinning and sharing – have a happy Monday!

Yum, yum!! This sounds totally awesome, Lisa!
This is the perfect treat!!
This sounds good, but I’m confused by the honey. Is it 8 teaspoons? Oh wait, I just looked at my keyboard! It’s a typo in the parentheses. 2 tablespoons PLUS 2 teaspoons. Phew!
The recipe does say 2 Tablespoons = 2 teaspoons. Should read 2 Tablespoons + 2 teaspoons
Thank you Deb!!
