I go nuts over walnuts. That’s probably why temptation got the best of me while shopping @Costco before Christmas when I spotted this Kentucky bourbon cake. I discovered that the topping was what I loved — a mixture of nuts, chocolate, and sugar.
So I decided to tweak my temptation in a healthy way by using this original recipe to substitute one for the other.
Sauté walnuts in a 1/2 – 1 T. coconut oil (amount of oil depends on amount of walnuts).
While sautéing, sprinkle the following: cocoa powder, stevia, and cinnamon (and any other spice that’s appealing to you!).
Remove from heat after coated and rest on paper towels until cooled. Store in airtight container.
It’s not just about deleting something from your daily intake; it’s about substituting something healthier!
Unless you’re allergic to walnuts, find ways to incorporate them into your diet. They contain fiber, protein, minerals, vitamins, and Omega-3 fats (the healthy kind!). Use on salads, greek yogurt, or eat a few as a snack.
