Healthy Glazed Nuts

This glazed nuts recipe is something I make for our household as a guilt-free snack. It’s healthy, delicious and the perfect gift to give out to friends.  It’s naturally sweetened with maple syrup with a hint of brandy to spice things up. You can substitute any nuts you wish.  In our household, I like to keep all nuts equal, but we do have arguments such as; “Are you selectively picking out just the pecans!”… 

Enjoy healthy snacking!

Glazed nuts are gone fast! This is why I chose to make 3 cups.
If you want to keep the nuts raw you can use dehydrator for 12 hours on 105º F instead of an oven.  
You can use the glazed nuts as an addition to salad or desserts.
