Recipies for walnuts

Hi,

I was looking at the different nutritional profiles for nuts and was pretty impressed by the fact that the fat/carb/protein ratio for walnuts. They have a good amount of fat and protein and are relativly low in carbs vs other nuts and seeds. But, they don't taste so great because they have a pretty sharp flavor compared to the more mild flavor of almond, for example.

Does anyone have any good recipies about how to make them taste better? I was reading that you can fry them in butter and cinnamon, which sounds pretty good. Any other recipies or experience doing what I mentioned above?

Thanks.

As do these: http://www.walnuts.org/walnuts/index...piced-walnuts/

For fun I googled walnuts and paleo and stumbled on this, yum. Many recipes here include walnuts:

Re: Recipies for walnuts

Depends on what you get. Agave nectar will have a mixture of glucose and fructose.

I would skip the agave nectar and just stick with maple syrup or honey if you really need some sort of sweetener. Personally, I haven't had any issues going on without either of them.

Re: Recipies for walnuts

I do a few things,
I spread avacado on a plate, push walnuts into the spread then glaze it with honey.

Another option is a banana, since it won't spread as easily i'll slice it, put a walnut on each slice and put a drop of honey on top.

I'll put apple butter or peanut butter in a small flat dish and again layer it with walnuts and some honey.

I treat myself to this when i think of it, which is only a few times a year.
