Toasting Black Walnuts makes the nuts crunchier, while adding texture and more flavor to just about any dish. We love using toasted Black Walnuts as a robust topping to salads, steamed vegetables, and pasta. Toasted nuts are also great to eat alone as a nutritional snack or mixed with your favorite trail mix.
Here’s our quick and easy method for toasting Black Walnuts, along with our popular Wild Harvest Energy Mix (this can be purchased online too).
Toasted Black Walnuts
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Spread a single layer of Black Walnuts on a cookie sheet. Bake in oven for 10 minutes. Stir nuts, then bake for an additional 10-15 minutes. Once cooled, store in an airtight container until ready to use.
