Wonderful Walnuts: Fall’s Baking Darling!

With fall’s baking season in full throttle, what can be easier than reaching for a bag of Bella Viva Orchards’ Walnut Pieces!? While they’re the perfect size for baking, they’re great sprinkled on banana pancakes, used as a yogurt topper, enjoyed at lunchtime in chicken salad or at dinnertime as a healthier coating for baked chicken breasts or accompaniment to your holiday green beans. Whether you go savory or sweet, your meals will thank you for adding these ready-to-use darlings!

Besides having a perfect soft crunch and nutty flavor, Walnuts are a source of dietary fiber and plant-based protein which help with weight management and blood health. They’re also a source of antioxidants, omega-3 fats and amino acids, meaning they can help reduce inflammation, heart disease and type 2 diabetes (1). With these kinds of health benefits, how can you resist?

So pick up some Walnuts and try ‘em in this month’s recipe for Persimmon Walnut Crisp or search your grandmother’s old cookbooks for that special forgotten recipe to delight your family. However you enjoy them, we’ll bet you’ll find them to be wonderful!
