Five ingredients–including salt and pepper—is all it takes to create a savory snack that’s loaded with delicious crunch and plant-based omega-3 fats. In fact, walnuts are the only nut that provides these heart-healthy fats in significant amounts. Toasting them brings out their rich and slightly buttery flavor, elevating every satisfying bite.

If you’re looking for a great app to bring to a party or you want to impress your sweetie on date night, this is the recipe. Or you can make a big stash and enjoy a handful or two whenever you’re looking for a snack. I often store mine in the freezer; they’re extra-crispy and will keep fresh for months.
