  • 16 ounces shelled walnuts walnut halves, not little pieces
  • ¼ cup dairy free butter
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Put the vegan butter, syrup and vanilla extract in a Slow Cooker.
  • Turn on low and melt the vegan butter. This only takes a few minutes.
  • Mix in the walnuts and mix from the bottom so all of the coating is all over the walnuts and not on the bottom of the pot.
  • Cook on low 1 hour then stir. Cook another one half hour to one hour more.
  • Turn out onto a baking sheet and let cool - completely.


Pack in an airtight container. The walnuts will keep in your pantry for quite a few weeks and will keep in the fridge about 2-3 months. The freezer will store them for 6 months.
I have also done this with pecans and almonds and they are equally delicious.
