  • 1 egg white, whisked



Discover how to transform raw walnuts into a delectable candied delight.



Preparing the Perfect Treat:

  1. Set the stage for your culinary creation by selecting the “Roast” function on your air fryer. Adjust the temperature to 320 degrees F and press the “Start” key, ready to embark on your walnut-candying adventure.
  2. As your air fryer preheats, gather your ingredients to ensure a seamless process. Toss together the raw walnut halves, brown sugar, coarse sea salt, ground cinnamon, and vanilla extract in a mixing dish. Let the anticipation of the cinnamon-infused sweetness fill the air.


Coating in Cinnamon Magic:

  1. The magic of candying begins with an egg white. Whisk the egg white until it’s frothy and ready to envelop each walnut half in a delicate candied coat.
  2. Gradually incorporate the whisked egg white into the walnut mixture, ensuring that every walnut is embraced by the sweet and cinnamon-infused blend. The egg white acts as a binding agent, creating a luscious and crispy coating.


Into the Air Fryer Oven:

  1. As the air fryer signals “Add Food,” gently place the candied walnut mixture into the air fryer oven pan. Each walnut will soon undergo a delightful transformation, emerging as a perfectly candied delight.
  2. Allow the candied walnuts to roast within the preheated air fryer for approximately 8 minutes. Remember to toss the walnuts halfway through the cooking time to ensure an even and uniform candying process.


Savoring the Sweetness:

  1. Once the air fryer has worked its magic, your Cinnamon Candied Walnuts are ready to be savored. The aroma of cinnamon and sweetness will fill your kitchen, inviting you to experience the delectable crunch of each candied walnut.
