July 12, 2019

This recipe is very easy to make and a great way to enjoy the many nutrional benefits of walnuts. One ounce of walnuts contains 4 grams of protein, 2 grams of fiber and 45milligrams of magnesium. Walnuts are also an excellent source of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), the plant-based omega-3 fatty acid (2.5g) – the most ALA of any other tree nut. Walnuts are certified by the American Heart Association’s Heart-Check mark meaning they meet the criteria for a heart healthy food.
