Fall is just a few days away and I am celebrating with a key, in-season ingredients that we all know and love: hazelnuts!
This autumn nut is a good source of heart healthy fats, fiber, skin-loving vitamin E and anti-aging antioxidants. Not only is it good for us, it’s super versatile as well.
Here are six ways to enjoy it this season:
Cookies: Fall calls for lots of baking! This season grab a handful of heart healthy chopped hazelnuts to bump up the healthy fats and fiber in your cookies.
Chocolate hazelnut butter toast: is there anything more decadent than chocolate hazelnut butter? Try it on toast, apple slices or by the spoonful this fall for a better-for-you dessert.
Salad “crouton” swap: swap out your traditional croutons made with white bread for nutrient-dense hazelnuts for some added crunch
Homemade trailmix: swap out your traditional almonds and cashews for this in-season nut to experience a different taste and texture in your on the go snack.
Loacker Hazelnut Wafers: Loacker’s wafers are made in the heart of the Italian Alps using only the highest quality hazelnuts which are selected in Italy during the fall harvest. They are then washed and freshly roasted in house. All of Loacker premium wafers are a better-for-you sweet treat with no preservatives, hydrogenated fats, artificial colors of flavors.
Hazelnut-crusted proteins: forgo your traditional breadcrumbs and bread you baked proteins with crushed hazelnuts for added crunch and nutrition.
What’s your favorite way to enjoy hazelnuts?
