Roasted walnuts, anyone?
Flavored walnuts are so tasty tossed into salads, yogurt, oatmeal or alone as a simple snack. I love using walnuts because they are loaded with heart-healthy omega-3 fats, as well as protein, fiber, magnesium and potassium. You can’t go wrong with walnuts!
Keep in mind that the calories can add up fast with about 185 calories per 1 ounce serving (14 walnut halves).
Walnuts are a blank canvas as they take on the flavor of any seasoning – sweet or savory, spicy or tangy. It’s magical! These are super simple to make on the stovetop, too. Simply toss in the ingredients, stir to heat up and cool on a cookie sheet prior to using. You can give these walnuts as gifts, too. Put these seasoned walnuts in mason jars and pass along to your family and friends.
