Yummy Walnuts

Looking for a quick healthy snack you can take on the go? I love these, and they keep great in the fridge...yummy! (Also, fabulous on a salad)
In bowl, mix:

1 1/3 C. walnuts (i use ones that were soaked and then dehydrated)

1 T. agave

1 t. cinnamon

1/4 t. salt
Thanks Raw Melissa for this recipe. You can find some more of Raw Melissa's yummy recipes on her website: This is my afternoon snack and I love them. (2 T. equals 184 Calories, 4 grams of protein, 17 grams of healthy fat, and 7 carbs) Walnuts are a rich source of Omega-3 alpha-linolenic-acid. Eat about 1.5 oz. (or 20) walnuts a day to reap these great benefits. Walnuts are one of the best plant sources for protein. The are rich in fiber, B12, magnesium, and antioxidants like Vitamin E. Try a few on your oatmeal, like my favorite raw, overnight oats, HERE!
