I rarely ever share snack/appetizer recipes on here. I realized that back in Feb when the Superbowl happened and I didn’t have anything to share with you guys to bring to a party… oops! Since then, I’ve been trying to come up with my snacky/appetizer recipes, and I remembered that these Healthy Toasted Rosemary Walnuts were way back in the archives of my site. I had made them forever ago, posted the recipe + pretty much forgot about them until the other day.
I’m currently going through the fun (and totally not daunting) task of updating all of my recipes, which in case you were wondering.. there are about 200 of them… Oy. When I first started blogging, I thought it was better to just post post post as much as I could, which I now know isn’t necessarily the answer. As with all things in life quality always trumps quantity! Now I have a boatload of awesome recipes, that have basically nothing written in the post, terrible SEO, and cringeworthy photos. I’m slowly but surely going back and updating them all!
Anyways, these walnuts. Forever ago, Tyler and I went to a farmer’s market and we met a woman who was selling canned vegetables and various types of seasoned nuts. She had these Rosemary Walnuts out as a sample, and when I tasted them – I was hooked instantly. They were salty, savory and just SO good. Then she told me they were $10 for a teeny tiny jar of them that held about a handful of walnuts (no joke). They were so good I ALMOST bought them… but then I remembered that Tyler and I can recreate pretty much anything in the kitchen – so that’s how these Healthy Toasted Rosemary Walnuts were born!
These Healthy Toasted Rosemary Walnuts are way better than the overpriced ones at the farmer’s market, and they’re so easy to make! They’re perfect as a great snack, salad add in, savory topping in a dish or hummus… really any way you want to eat them!
