For snacks on the go, you can’t beat this amazing powerhouse of nutrition. Walnuts are a superfood and the fats they contain are very healthy. Soaking them takes away the bitterness as well as the enzyme that makes them difficult to digest. Add some raisins to the mix and you’ve got a healthy snack you just can’t beat!
This used to be one of Mini Chef’s favorite snacks. As with most things that involve food and kids, that status has changed. Maybe because I gave him too much of it. But I still take this with me on occasion and I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of it. It’s a wonderful balance of flavors and textures, and a great snack to grab on the go.
YOU MIGHT ALSO ENJOY:
- 1 cup walnut halves or pieces
- 1/2 cup raisins
- Soak the walnuts in a bowl of water (enough to allow them to float freely) overnight on your counter top. In the morning, drain off the water, rinse the walnuts, and strain well.
- In a medium storage container, combine the walnuts and raisins, put the lid on and shake well, then enjoy.
