Rosemary Spiced Nuts

A handful of plain walnuts is a great snack on its own. Take a few minutes to dress them up like we do here, and you’re going to want another handful.

Sticking them in the oven gives them a roasted flavor and an even more satisfying crunch. Rosemary adds fresh herbaceousness.

Pro tip: Make a big batch and portion them out into small bags you can throw in your purse all week long. They’ll help you get over the afternoon slump at the office or come in handy on a long car ride.

WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE
Walnuts are a great source of vitamin E, an important antioxidant that keeps our cells strong and healthy. They’re also packed with protein and linoleic acid, an omega-3 that’s great for your brain. Plus, a little bit of rosemary goes a long way, adding a delicious, fragrant twist.
